It's like a sitcom exploded onto the big screen.

Audience Reviews for Madhouse

Great comedy, filled with hilarious tidbits. Fantastic movie from the early 90's.

Super Reviewer

It is corny and silly, but I love it. And Kirstie still looked terrific in this one! Madcap comedy worth watching on a rainy afternoon.

Sara R

Along the same lines of Christmas Vacation, this movie is about a married couple who just buys a new home and before they know it, it's over run with unwanted house guests. There are some humorous moments but over all the writing is pretty weak. Kirstie Alley and John Larroquette do an adequet job, but it's the supporting cast that is dreadful and a little too obnoxious to be believable. The potential to make a great comedy was there but it just fell short. One of those movies that you watch when there's nothing else on and you want to be mildly entertained.
