Bringing Down the House Reviews

    Not sure why negative comments about "stereotypes" etc. Back in the day, comedy was ok. It was a well-cast film with many laughs throughout. Queen Latifah, Steve Martin and Jean Smart were fantastic together as well. An unlikely trio that works!

    A cliched comedy, only very funny and brilliant.

    An adventure comedy plays with all the humor that can fit into PG-13 (sexual, racial, e.t.c,)

    Racial stereotypes from the start which I really didn't have time for. Turned off after 25minutes after forcing myself to give it a few more chances

    The cast made it far better than the script deserved.

    Good watch, would watch again, and can recommend. Fair warning, this movie has moments where it looks / feels super racist, and that cringe-factor might be by design. It's a little pushy in its message at points, but ultimately it's funny, and that message is basically togetherness and cooperation so there is some allowable forgiveness. I do feel like they casted very well for this, both Queen Latifah and Steve Martin have the skill and finesse to make this movie good. Eugene Levy was a great cast as well, and Missi Pyle is always a fun choice. Steve Harris and Betty White were also great choices to include. With respect to the line they tried to walk, the casting and performance are top, but the writing just really what I would have wanted out of this.

    A bit forgettable but the performances of both Martin and Latifa make it a fun film with some tongue-in-cheek humor
