Cliched, predictable, and very, very enjoyable. Steve Martin is really a very natural comedian!

Unfortunately, this looked funny, but wasn't good at all. There wasn't even one good laugh, which is disappointing because I like both actors. Everything worth viewing was already in the previews. The plot started out good, but then went downhill real quick!

This was a suprisingly good movie. I love Steve Martin and my husband thinks Queen Latifa is hot, so we had to check it out. I thought it was pretty funny and well worth my time.

When I first saw this movie I thought it was going to be interesting. Steve Martin seemed to be returning to his older comedic days and doing things that were much similar to when he first began performing. In this movie he is accompanied by Queen Latifa, and by an old friend Eugene Levy. Levy and Martin make an incredible combination, and they have an incredible on screen presence together. The end results of this movie are very funny, its a good one that most people will enjoy, and just about anyone can watch.

Uptight white folks collide with black pop culture

Bringing down the House stars Steve Martin, Queen Latifah and a delightful Eugene Levy who delivers a good performance as the man who just can't get enough of the Queen.


A divorced tax attorney finds himself lonely after his divorce and surfs a legal chat room where he meets lawyer girl. He takes her to be a slim white blonde and sets up a date, only to find that Charlene is actually a giant bodacious black felon who refuses to leave until he helps her clear her record, causing trouble with his ultra-conservative bosses and neighbours. The always funny Betty White is here too playing the ultimate white racist snob neighbour with some great lines and a pasty smile. Situations involved were hilarious at times and there are some funny and touching moments between Martin and The Q...
