In an unexplained act of charity, Jeanne Holman, picks up an injured, apparent tramp and takes him home to care for him little realizing who he was, or the effect he would have on her life and those of her family.
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio,
Walter Goodfellow (Rowan Atkinson), the vicar for the small English country parish of Little Wallop, has allowed his marriage to Gloria (Kristin Scott Thomas) go stale, and he is so detached from his family, that he has not taken notice that his seventeen-year-old daughter Holly (Tamsin Egerton) is going through a succession of relationships with unsuitable boyfriends, and his son Petey (Toby Parkes) fears going to school, owing to being bullied. Out of desperation for affection, Gloria begins to fall for the advances of Lance (Patrick Swayze), an American golf pro who is giving her "private" lessons. The problems upsetting the family start to fade away after Grace Hawkins (Dame Maggie Smith), the new housekeeper, arrives and starts tending to matters as an older, and rather darkly mysterious version of Mary Poppins.Written by

We went along not really knowing anything about this film or seeing anything. My daughters 16, 25 and wife tagged along.
surprise a simple and not overly taxing film to watch we all enjoyed the black comedy and did not expect the end. We did say to each other how can they end this film on a happy note. Will it just end in disaster? They carried it off perfectly and we left feeling that we had our moneys worth, and discussing the deeper meaning portrayed therein.
The treatment of death, happiness and how to get rid of our neighbor's dog!
Rowan ATkinson we surprisingly good and played his part as an almost straight vicar very well and we thought there was a good mixture of good bad and evil strewn about the film.
Not a taxing film to watch, make a good entertainment as so many try to involve you in a complex plot you have to be constantly remembering who was that.
