Houseguest - Sinbad - Phil Hartman
10 March 2015 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this in the theatre I was 16 years old and actually liked the movie a lot against a lot of public ratings that were low for this one. I thought Sinbad and Phil worked well together to deliver funny punchlines and anything these guys on to ME is GREATNESS. the plot sucked as most comedies plots suck which I rate as 10 star effort. Serious Comedies do not deserve plots so fine work there. The cast was acting pretty cliché and everyone on the movie was cool and fun during the delivery of the film. Whoever gave this low scores is someone who does NOT like the genre much and does not like goofy or corny stuff. I do so this 1 gets a 10 all day. 1 of the top 100 Comedies all time to me with The 3 Amigos in my top 10.
