After watching For Richer or Poorer, I'm reminded how much better I liked Houseguest. Even the first time this movie was made, the plot is nothing new, but Sinbad makes it wholesome and we can relate to him at some level as is with the other characters. His pretense at being a vegetarian is a great, humorous struggle for him. The ending featuring Sinbad and the late Phil Hartman singing the Christmas Burger Medley was great. Anything to remind me of that casserole scene in For Richer or Poorer.
The verdict: 4 of 5 stars.
