From Back Cover:

"Outrageously Funny."
-David Sheehan, CBS-TV

The hilarious Steve Martin (Father of the Bride) and Academy Award nominee Queen Latifah (Chicago) star with Eguene Levy (American Pie) in the laugh-out-loud hit comedy Bringing Down the House. Peter Sanderson (Martin), a divorced, straitlaced, uptight workaholic attorney, meets a brainy bombshell lawyer in an online chat room and they make a date. Expecting his soul mate, he opens the door and finds himself face-to-face with Charlene (Latifah) - a wild and crazy soul sister who's just escaped from prison and wants Peter to clear her name. But Peter wants absolutely nothing to do with her, and that prompts Charlene to turn Peter's perfectly ordered life totally upside down. Hysterical complications abound and Peter soon finds out he may need Charlene just as much as she need him. It's a houseful of fun your family will enjoy again and again.

"House Of Laughs."
-Leah Rozen, People

My Comments:

A silly, over-the-top comedy that plays with stereotypes. Not a favorite, but still a fun way to kill some time.
