The special features available on this DVD are enough to keep fans of this film happy...[but] I can't help but raise a 'Eugene Levy' eyebrow at the crassness of this film.

...ultimately, the film becomes a story that is watchable without being memorable.

The laugh-filled commentary by director Adam Shankman and screenwriter Jason Filardi is self-deprecating and is consistently funnier than the film.

Bringing Down the House is as mainstream as it gets, which explains its impressive box office numbers. And as they say, you can't fight city hall.

...formulaic stuff, filled with absurd coincidences, moving at the turgid pace of a TV sitcom, and following a schedule any one of us could have written in advance.
