Trivia

John Larroquette was approached for this film while working on the sixth season of Night Court. But the show's executive producer would not allow Larroquette the time off to make the film. Because of delays in the film, Larroquette was approached again during the seventh season of Night Court. This time, the show's producer and the film's producers worked out a schedule that would allow Larroquette to work on both projects simultaneously. Mondays to Thursdays, Larroquette would rehearse for the series during the day and work on the film all night. On Friday nights, the series would tape their episodes. As soon taping finished, he would go to the film's set and work all weekend. See more »

Excellent feel-good screwball comedy which will leave you smiling!
28 February 2007 | by (Fairfax, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

MADHOUSE, in my opinion, is an excellent feel-good screwball comedy which will leave you smiling! If I had to deal with a bunch of uninvited guests the way that Mark (John Larroquette) and Jessie (Kirstie Alley) did, I would go just as crazy as they did. Still, I say it's always a good idea to be a good Samaritan. Last night, before I had to leave to go somewhere, I watched half of this, and this morning, I watched the whole thing, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. I even purchased it last night. Anyway, if you want to know what kind of mayhem ensues, see the movie for yourself. I guarantee you that you will have a smile on your face afterward.
