Mediocre

Madhouse is a movie that you will watch one time and be through with it. Yes, parts of it are very funny, but over all, it is not such a great movie.

Mark and Jessie Bannister are a couple that buy a new home. They have great jobs, loving marriage, and are successful. When relatives come to visit, it all changes from there. Pretty soon there are over eight houseguests and Mark and Jesse's life get turned upside down.

If you want to see this movie, see it on t.v., don't rent it. 4/10
