House Arrest (1996)
Critic Consensus: Constructed out of cliches, thinly written characters, and fundamental misunderstandings of human nature, House Arrest is a dull (and borderline irresponsible) waste of a talented cast.
Grover and his young sister Stacy decide to lock their parents in the basement until they decide that they are not going to get a divorce. Eventually three other sets of neighbor kids decide to bring their parents over to do the same thing.

Critic Reviews for House Arrest
[A] predictable and sugarcoated (even criminally negligent) take on The Parent Trap.
To the slim degree that it qualifies as a comedy, House Arrest is a comedy with rank amateur pathos, and it's totally out of touch with its own superficially treated emotions.
A headache of a movie with a Parent Trap premise that quickly devolves into clamorous farce.
One of the year's worst movies... at least I hope so, or it's going to be a very bad year.
Audience Reviews for House Arrest
"Kids lock up parents": Terrible spoiled children. Terrible written screenplay.
This mean-spirited comedy only has very few laughs about the soon-to-be divorced couple's kids who decide to keep the parents locked in the basement for the best way to keep the family together.
I Think after a while, you see it's failed Attempt at a big blockbuster,and It's major Flaws.
