When two American brothers, Graham and Allen
Granville, learn that they have inherited a
chateau in France, they cannot believe their luck.
However, when they arrive, the brothers find
themselves completely ill-equipped to communicate
with the chateau's staff (even with the help of a
pocket dictionary). With no hope of paying off the
chateau's enormous debt, the pair are forced to
sell the chateau, leaving a bewildered staff
resorting to desperate and hilarious measures to
keep their home. Through a series of comedic
misunderstandings, the film's stars not only
uncover they're not as distant from the staff as
they might think, they also discover something
about the importance of family.
