My Boss's Daughter is a 2003 romantic comedy film directed by David Zucker and starring Ashton Kutcher, Tara Reid, and Andy Richter. The movie follows the story of Tom Stansfield (Kutcher), a young man who works for a publishing company and has a crush on his boss's daughter, Lisa Taylor (Reid). When Lisa's father asks Tom to house-sit for him, he sees it as a chance to impress Lisa and win her over. The movie opens with Tom getting ready for a date with Lisa at her family's mansion. Tom has been working for Lisa's father, Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp), for a few months and is smitten with Lisa. However, he is also nervous as he knows that Jack dislikes him and his work. Things quickly take a turn when Lisa tells Tom that she needs to go to New York for a few days and asks him to house-sit for her. Tom sees this as an opportunity to impress her father and agrees to stay at the mansion. Once at the mansion, Tom's plans quickly go awry. He is faced with a number of challenges, including accidentally killing the family's beloved pet owl, dealing with Lisa's alcoholic brother Red (Richter), and avoiding the advances of their lunatic neighbor, Mr. Strickland (Michael Madsen). To make matters worse, Lisa's best friend Audrey (Molly Shannon) arrives unexpectedly, and Tom is forced to deal with her eccentric behavior. As Tom struggles to maintain the house, he discovers a letter written by Jack to Lisa, which reveals that Jack doesn't actually hate him but instead values him as a hardworking and trustworthy employee. Tom sees this as a window of opportunity to win Jack's respect and impress Lisa. He decides to throw a party at the mansion, inviting Jack's business associates and colleagues over. Unfortunately, the party turns into a disaster, with Red getting drunk and making a fool of himself, Mr. Strickland crashing the party, and Tom's ex-girlfriend showing up uninvited. Despite the chaos, Tom manages to impress Jack with his ability to handle the situation and decides to confess his feelings for Lisa. Lisa reciprocates his feelings, and they share a romantic moment in the mansion's gazebo. However, their happiness is short-lived as Jack arrives and chastises Tom for throwing a party without his permission. Jack fires Tom, and Lisa is heartbroken. In the end, Tom returns to his old job, and Jack offers him a promotion. Tom turns down the offer, saying that he values his friendship with Lisa more than his job. Jack realizes that Lisa truly loves Tom and gives them his blessing. Tom and Lisa reconcile, and the movie ends with them driving away together. Overall, My Boss's Daughter is a light-hearted romantic comedy that offers humor and a little bit of drama. The storyline may be predictable, but the chemistry between Kutcher and Reid's characters and the comedic performances of Richter and Shannon make the movie enjoyable to watch. The movie may not be a classic, but it is a fun and entertaining movie to watch on a lazy afternoon.
