Bob the Butler ★½ 2005 (PG)

Harmless fluff stars the usually obnoxious Green as perennial loser Bob Tree, who can't keep a job. His latest career attempt is attending butler school. His first placement is with neurotic Anne (Shields), who fired him when he was Bob the babysitter. Still, the single mom is desperate and hires Bob to look after her house and two exasperating children (Buechner, Smith), who decide the butler is better than mom's current boyfriend. 90m/C DVD .
