One of my new favorite films
30 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I first heard about Open House while looking up movies that feature Anthony Rapp. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this indie musical, but it turned out that I found a wonderful gem of a movie that I can actually watch more than once without getting tired of it. The film was directed by the great Dan Mirvish and stars Anthony Rapp and Sally Kellerman as two quirky real estate agents; James Duval, Kellie Martin, Brandon Williams, and Jenna Leigh Green as two quirky couples who call themselves "Sexy Swipers"; Hedy Buress and Robert Peters as two quirky, adulterous cops; and Jerry Doyle and Ian Whitcomb as two quirky "doctors" who both visit the Open House for similar reasons.

Open House is really just such a fun movie. There are tons of subtle actions and jokes that the actors slip in (a raise of an eyebrow from Jerry Doyle, a change in tone from Anthony Rapp) that will keep you laughing the whole way through. The music is very impressive, as well. After watching this movie, you'll find find yourself humming the songs to yourself throughout the day. Anthony Rapp's performance of "My House" and Sally Kellerman and Jerry Doyle's duet of "Sellin' a Dream" will leave you breathless while Kellie Martin and James Duval's performances of "Do You Love This House" will have you laughing.

I recommend this film to anyone looking for a good film and a good time. The writing is excellent, the dialogue is hysterical, and songs are simply amazing, and the film itself is, in a word, fantabulous.
