When a young man agrees to housesit for his boss, he thinks it'll be the perfect opportunity to get close to the woman he desperately has a crush on – his boss's daughter. But he doesn't plan on the long line of other houseguests that try to keep him from his mission. And he also has to deal with the daughter's older brother, who's on the run from local drug dealers.

Did You Know?
The 16 March 2001 draft of the screenplay lists David Zucker and Peter Tilden as writers. Tilden is not credited in the final film and Zucker only receives a directing credit.
When the mice escape and are running across the floor, they do not look like live animals. They have no legs, only run in a straight line, and their tails don't move.
Speed, tell Tom about Kennedy's assassination. This is so cool, Tom, Speed knows who killed JFK. No ask him, Tom, ask him! Ask him who killed him!
Alright, alright. Who killed JFK?

His life just changed.
This film was terrible. I thought it would be OK but it just got worse
and worse. 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. None of the characters have
any depth and the only person who was anywhere near believable was Tom,
although the way he became so easily distracted just annoyed me after a
while. The dialogue is ridiculous and the structure of the film almost
completely non-existent. In an insulting attempt at comedy the
writer/director introduces a new character or event in practically
every scene, none of which are realistic, making it very confusing to
keep track of what is going on. The plot is barely an excuse for a
movie : guy likes girl, house sits fathers home to get to know girl,
destroys house, gets girl. A complete waste of time.
