I must admit, the prospect of a "real-estate musical" struck me as something that wouldn't work very well. Let me tell you, I was WRONG. "Open House" is a very good film with some seriously catchy songs (especially the oft-repeated "Do You Love This House") by performers gifted both in acting and in singing. The highlights of this film come with the realtor Barry Farnsworth (the ever-wonderful Anthony Rapp of RENT fame) and the drunken Marjorie (Sally Kellerman). Every part of this film is extremely enjoyable. Dan Mirvish is a fine director and I can't wait till I see some more of his work. I could also see this as having stage potential. If you take nothing but one thing from my review, let it be this. "Open House" is simply FANTABULOUS.
