Plot-wise, there's little here beyond a few insubstantial strands.

Who decided Sinbad needed to star in a movie and what should we do to them when we find out?

Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
A film that lacks solid construction from the ground up, something that can't be "fixed in the editing," I'm afraid.

Like the housepest of the title, Sinbad's character here is more annoying than amusing and before the film is over you may just wish he'd go away.

Turns out to be an inane fish-out-of-water comedy. Along the way it turns into a virtual McDonald's commercial, too. The fact that you can hardly tell the difference is a good clue to the movie's bad-television flavor.

In its worst moments, Houseguest becomes a struggle in which a very human comedian fights to project his personality over the director's technological muddle. But the good news is that Sinbad wins.

As good-natured as its big, beefy star, comedian Sinbad.
