The Valet frames hardworking 50-something valet Antonio (Eugenio Derbez) as he's accidentally snapped by the paparazzi next to the gorgeous – and world-famous – Olivia (Samara Weaving) and her married lover, billionaire Vincent (Max Greenfield). To divert all eyes from the truth behind the photo, the couple pay Antonio to pose as Olivia’s new boyfriend. Suffice to say, things get rather complicated in this rags meets riches tale. Read on as we explain how to watch the The Valet online where you are.
Runtime: 2h 3m
Director: Richard Wong
Starring: Samara Weaving, Eugenio Derbez, Max Greenfield, Betsy Brandt, Carmen Salinas, Marisol Nichols
Stream: Hulu with a 30-day FREE trial (opens in new tab) (US) | Disney Plus (opens in new tab) (RoW)
Director Richard Wong is the driver behind this adaptation of Francis Veber’s 2006 hit La Doublure set in Paris, and the new location is no less than L.A. Cultures and worlds collide when circumstance brings together Olivia – a spoilt, rich movie starlet, in the business of “women’s storytelling” in a still sexist Hollywood – and Antonio, an unassuming first-generation Mexican-American from a large tight-knit family, part of the huge community of immigrants propping up Tinseltown who are normally invisible to the stars.
Derbez (fresh from his role in the award-winning “CODA”) and Weaving are supported by a cast that includes Max Greenfield as the business mogul boyfriend, Breaking Bad’s Betsy Brandt as Vincent’s wife, and Antonio’s mother Cecilia, played by an Carmen Salinas in her final role.

How to watch The Valet for FREE in the US
The Valet is available to watch exclusively on Hulu in the States but there are a number of ways you can make your subscription cheaper or even free for a while.
To watch The Valet, just sign up for Hulu’s basic plan. It costs $6.99 a month after a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab), and you can cancel your membership at any time.
There's better value for money if you combine Hulu with Disney Plus and ESPN Plus. The Disney Plus bundle combines all three streaming services for the monthly price of just $13.99 (opens in new tab).
So as well as everything on Hulu, such as Pam and Tommy, The Great, Upload, Helstrom and Normal People, you also get everything Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and The Simpsons from Disney Plus and top quality live sports from ESPN Plus.
Better still, Hulu is available to watch on an enormous range of devices, including: Android, iOS, Apple TV, Chromecast, Echo Show, Fire TV, Roku and games consoles.
How to watch The Valet online from anywhere else in the world
The Valet is available on Disney Plus (opens in new tab) (on the Star hub) everywhere else in the world.
As Disney Plus has now rolled out in North America, Europe and parts of Asia and Latin America, watching The Valet using the service is easier than ever. If you’re located in a country where the service is available, just head to the Disney Plus website (opens in new tab) and sign up for the service to watch.
In addition to being the exclusive home of The Valet, Disney Plus also gives you access to Disney’s huge back catalog, the entire Star Wars canon, plus all things Marvel, Fox and Pixar all for just CA$11.99/£7.99/AU$11.99 a month (opens in new tab).

How to save money on Disney+
Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix, but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription that gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You're looking at CA$119.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year (opens in new tab).
What else should I know about Disney+?
The Valet is just the latest in a string of recent blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian season 3, Pam and Tommy, The Book of Boba Fett and Hawkeye. Plus, there's plenty more on the way, such as Rise, Ms. Marvel (opens in new tab), and Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion (opens in new tab), all set to arrive in the coming weeks and months.
The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.
The Valet is available on the platform thanks to the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy, which has seen the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy.
It's available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.
