If you don’t like Tom Green, you’ll hate Bob the Butler.

Hell, if you like Tom Green but don’t like generic family fare, you’ll also hate Bob the Butler.

The premise of Bob the Butler actually could’ve made for a fun TV show. The always upbeat Bob Tree (Green) is searching for his calling in life. Not sure of what exactly he’ll excel at, he’s spent his adulthood going through the Yellow pages alphabetically. After failing at most of the A’s and B’s, all he’s got left before moving onto the C’s is butler school. After attending Mr. Butler’s Butler School for a few days, Bob is called by Anne (Shields), an uptight germaphobe searching for Bob the Babysitter so she can go out with her kid-hating, wine-tasting boyfriend. Even though he has long since passed the early B’s, Bob decides to take the job, and soon endears himself to Anne’s children Tess and Bates. After they take a liking to Bob, the kids convince their mom to hire Bob as a live-in butler. Cue the Master Bates jokes, Bob bonding with the children, and an eventual romance between Anne and Bob that ends with them living happily ever after.

I’ve always enjoyed watching generic kidvid fare, and since I’m kind of a fan of Green’s, I found myself having a fun time with Bob the Butler. It’s nothing special, and both Green and Shields are surely just doing the film for a paycheck, but it still entertained me for ninety minutes or so.
DVD: Eight extended scenes, all of which is material that was cut for the film to get a PG rating.
