Tacey and Harry King are a suburban couple with three sons and a serious need of a babysitter. Tacey puts aAn ad in the paper for a live-in babysitter, and the ad is answered by Lynn Belvedere. But when she arrives, she turns out to be a man. And not just any man, but a most eccentric, outrageously forthright genius with seemingly a million careers and experiences behind him. Mr. Belvedere works miracles with the children and the house but the Kings have no idea just what he's doing wit his evenings off. And when Harry has to go out of town on a business trip, a nosey parker starts a few ugly rumors. But everything comes out all right in the end thanks to Mr. Belvedere.

Lynn Belvedere: Mrs. King, I happen to dislike all children intensely. But I can assure you that I can readily attend to their necessary though unpleasant wants.
Lynn Belvedere: I am, in my way, a philosopher.
Harry King: Oh, I see, you just sit and think.
Lynn Belvedere: Mr. King, if more people just sat and thought, the world might not be in the stinking mess that it is.
Lynn Belvedere: Mrs. King, as I told you last night, I dislike children intensely and yours, if I may say so, have peculiarly repulsive habits and manners.
Harry King: You know, Mrs. King, it's really all your fault.
Tacey King: Hnh?
Harry King: If you weren't so darned pretty, we wouldn't have so many kids for people to sit with.
