Kevin Franklin is a con man whose mouth is bigger than him, but it doesn't help him much when he's in with the mob for $50,000. Trying to avoid a gambling addict boss, and his two stupid henchmen, Kevin poses as a childhood friend to Gary Young, a workaholic father whose own life is in turmoil in an affluent Pennsylvania suburb. Written by
The McDonald's that Kevin Franklin is seen visiting in Sewickley was an empty storefront. The small town of Sewickley, in which most of this movie was filmed, does not have a McDonald's, so they built a complete functional McDonalds that was open for business during the shoot and then was closed and dismantled.

I was in college when this movie came out in 1995, and me and my friends all thought it was hilarious then. Now, at age 40, I still find a lot of it still funny. Sinbad was very funny, but from an older perspective, he's sometimes a little too hyper excited. But that aspect is still minimal, and it's mainly in the first parts of the movie before Sinbad teams up with Phil Hartman. We get a couple more of the comic book style gangsters that we've seen in so many other 90s movies (I.e. "Getting even with dad", " Cop and a half","Man of the house"). And (the late) Phil and his wife could be a little brighter for not being able to see Sinbad as an imposter. But I've always let that part slide cause the scenes with Sinbad, Phil and his family were the best parts of the movie. I still find the part with Sinbad at the school assembly very funny. Same with Sinbad at the party at the house. And Sinbad's reaction to Phil calling every activity they do "the thing". And I've always liked Sinbad and Phil's chemistry together here. Phil Hartman is one of a number of great comic actors from the 80s and 90s I really liked that are no longer with us, such as Chris Farely, River Phoenix, and Corey Haim. Jeffery Jones definitely had had his day, but in "Houseguest", his " Ferris Bueller" funniness is long gone. But there's still some funny zanyness. I always shared Sinbad's fondness for McDonalds back then, back in the days when McDonalds burgers still tasted good. That was before the quality of McDonalds, Burger King, and a number of other fast food places went downhill. I still laughed at this movie. Like I said, a lot of the movie's still funny. It's on my long list of favorites from the 80s and 90s, the age of my youth.
