Clearly this is no masterpiece, but as its US reception indicated, it is a product overdue in the market, and it compares well with its anaemic counterparts.

An aged piece of ghetto-lore that has become less black-counterpart to Heathers and Dazed and Confused than pristine example of serendipity in film.

House Party is silly and high-spirited and not particularly significant, and that is just as it should be.

House Party isn't a great movie, but it's heartfelt and enormously winning.
