Detailed plot synopsis reviews of My Boss's Daughter

A young man in love with the boss's daughter agrees to housesit their mansion and runs into comical circumstances. Tom has a scary, domineering boss, Jack, whose daughter Lisa, is a girl he's in love with. He unassumingly agrees to housesit their house, thinking that Lisa has invited him there to take her to a party. When he arrives, he learns his mistake and is instructed by Jack to keep things in order while they are away... or else. As soon as he is left alone, all sorts of things go wrong. Red, Lisa's brother, arrives. He owes a dealer drugs/money, so soon, the dealer comes over to square things off with Tom. Jack's disgruntled secretary also comes over, and she gets a little crazy. The family owl O.J., Jack's precious pet, escapes. Meanwhile, when Lisa stops by, she is entangled in the mess, and along the way, gets to know Tom better and starts to like him. Jack then comes back early, and finds the house in a mess and is furious. Tom knows he is done for, but the next day, as he faces Lisa, he gives her a speech about standing up to her dad, which Jack overhears. Jack is impressed with Tom's conviction and decides to keep him in the company and gives him a promotion.

Best part of story, including ending: It's like the less-PG version of "Home Alone."

Best scene in story: Tom's scenes with the owl.

Opinion about the main character: I think Tom is super naive and easy to manipulate, which is why he gets into loads of trouble.
