Steve Martin and Queen Latifah? Who woulda thunk it! But kudos to that brainchild!

It's a wheezing, rusted machine of cheap jokes, cartoon performances, and crummy plotting, using shock value and insensitivity to make its painfully unfunny points.

Everything about this film is painfully familiar, except, perhaps, for the vicious-but-comic catfight between Latifah and Missi Pyle, who plays a high-society gold digger.

Martin and Latifah rule in boundary-pushing PG-13.

You're better off ignoring this junk and saving your time.

If you've seen the commercials for Bringing Down the House, you already know the movie's best moments and most memorable lines...

Irreverent but perhaps not funny enough, "Bringing Down the House" gives Queen Latifah the chance to shine opposite Steve Martin.

Steve Martin, Queen Latifah, and Eugene Levy manage to squeeze laughs out of a totally generic, manufactured script that's drowning in odd couple formula.

It's completely forgettable and unoriginal, but it might make a good rental on a slow family movie night.

...manages to remain entertaining in spite of the lackluster script.

Steve Martin used to be a wild and crazy guy. Now he's as bland as his hair.

Qualquer filme que tente provocar risos atravs de animais vestidos com 'roupas engraadas' est claramente ciente de suas deficincias.

It's quite a mess, this catastrophe -- a racially offensive mess, too.

Kudos to Steve Martin for choosing this script. He's laughing all the way to the bank. The audience isn't as lucky.

I think it was after Betty White told Steve Martin's son not to "wear his hair like a ***" that I thought about walking out.
