Trivia

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 McDonald's that was open for business during the shoot and then was closed and dismantled.

Goofs

The headlight of the car that Franklin is driving pops out at the beginning of the movie, magically replaces itself, and then pops back out, and once again replaces itself during his drive home. See more »

Crazy Credits

Sinbad and Phil Hartman sing several food-themed parodies over the credits with music and a chorus in the background. Phil Hartman uses the name "Sinbad" during these songs instead of either of the character's names from the movie. See more »

Too much funny scenes here
9 December 2003 | by squalaSee all my reviews

It's quite a shame this film is way underrated at 5.5 stars over 10. While a dumb boring movie like How to Deal gets .2 star higher, I guess many of those who watched Houseguest simply have bad taste.

Oh well, Sinbad's talent can never be better than what he exhausted here. Really funny how he can't help but grab that McDonald's burger from his friend's hands. And that splash of soft-serve ice cream scene, that was hilarious.

I want to see more Sinbad films in the future.
