So, with this film please feel free to ignore my views on the basis that I switched off at the 60 minute mark, unwilling and unable to stand the film for any of the remaining thirty minutes. It even gets worse when the audience is given an unnecessary look at some guys butt. Good: Well, some will enjoy its comedy and the exposure of women. Tom Stansfield Ashton Kutcher is a researcher at a publishing house in Chicago but he wants to be creative. It really hurt the film. Audrey comes by to ask for her job back but she brings her annoying boyfriend Spike Tyler Labine.
The end result is a happy ending. However, she has a party in the evening and invites Tom to go to her place. It isn't really predictable, because who predicted a criminal trying to recover drugs as part of the story, it is just that nothing that happens has any wit, humour or imagination about it. Tom assumes that it's a date. Red dumps drugs into the toilet, and instead returns a bag of flour to the drug dealer. I'm definitely not a Ashton Kutcher fan, and I'm rarely a fan of mainstream comedies.
Ashton Kutcher is Tom, who by mistakes is baby sitting his obnoxious boss's Terence Stamp owl and house. I just like him as an actor. You're certainly not laughing with anyone in the movie, you laugh at them. Other are actors such as Jeffrey Tambor and Carmen Electra. Tom also has a crush on Jack's daughter, Lisa. And he also has to deal with the daughter's older brother, who's on the run from local drug dealers. Kutcher does as well as can be expected in a very thin role.
You can understand if people are not capable of doing something but seeing everyone putting in so little effort is that bit more insulting. From the starting scenes it seems to be heading in the direction of another safe predictable rom-com, but the moment he arrives at the house it just disintegrates. I rarely turn a film off or walk out before the end. Kutcher will have plenty to get mad about after this film. Everything and everyone annoyed me in this movie.
Jack's ex-secretary Audrey goes to the house to try to earn her job back. One day at work, she approaches Tom and tells him about a party she wants to attend, but her father is making her housesit on the night this party is happening. It's an extremely frustrating movie to watch, and there were about three times when I nearly turned it off, because it was so bad. The only part of this movie that I found funny, involved Jack Taylor, being the really mean boss. His boss Jack Taylor leaves him instructions, very strict instructions and all Tom hopes to do is get through the evening without doing anything negative at all. I just sat on the couch as Aston tries to romance the daughter.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit, and laughed out loud in numerous places. This was not at all what I was expecting. The most surprising name was Michael Madsen. The rest of the cast features faces such as Thompson, Tambor, Madsen and others but none are any good. The boss' son stays out of the house.
I found myself extremely annoyed at Ashton Kutchers character. It was even worse than I'd expected. Tom encourages her to stand up to Jack and go to this party, and she invites the young man to come over to the Taylor mansion that night. While his other comedy, co-starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson, can be lame in places, it sure is funnier than this dreck! The problem is his boss, who is a tough guy who intimidates everybody. His boss Jack Taylor leaves him instructions, very strict instructions and all Tom hopes to do is get through the evening without doing anything negative at all. I was watching the movie ,and becoming mad at the same time! Ps:You feel sorry for the character of Ashton Kutcher,because he is kind of an idiot who let people do anything with him. .
It is certainly not an especially sophisticated movie - from the plot description, you gather that Ashton's character has to housesit for his sadistic boss, and basically the entire movie is a ridiculous romp through every possible thing that could go wrong with such a simple task. Nothing about this garbage is funny. Because he was never developed, and all he ever did was getting yelled at by different people, and never has the courage to stand up for himself. You know right from the start that bad things are going to happen, and they're mostly stupid things that would never actually happen. Tom of course is in panic, because he's in love with Lisa unbelievebly bad actor Tara Reid , the boss's daughter. I rarely turn a film off or walk out before the end. I do not say this as a boast really, is this anything to be proud of? Nothing actually makes sense, but so what? For some reason, that fact has remained with me for 10+ years.
Watch it and forget about it and don't get angry even thought you would be in the groups insulted by this flicks: there are so much better insulting comedies to get mad to. Be sure if it can go wrong it does. Rarely, in fact I can only think of one or two where I wrote a review based on part of the film. I have never seen a film that annoyed me that much. This definitely shows in the movie, since it gets messy and disjointed to watch.
Kutcher who has built a career out of playing jokes on people, but this one's on him! Not in comedy films, featuring Ashton Kutcher and Tara Reid. Deeds, Bruce Almighty, The Waterboy, you name it. Only watch this movie if you are a die hard fan of Ashton Kutcher, 'cause he is the main character, and none of the other actors is really involved in this movie, or if you love movies like Duplex, and other similar movies, which are even more embarrassing to watch. They both hated it so much they left halfway through. Kutcher is poor and, to provide a frame of reference is poor by his own standards. This film tapped into some striking issues regarding everything from race to weight and could've been funny yet influential but in the end goofiness took president over all else. When his boss demands that he keep an eye on Hannah, her gorgeous smile and tight little body prove too hard to resist.
