Critic Reviews of "Houseguest"New York TimesMay 20, 2003
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.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2001
As good-natured as its big, beefy star, comedian Sinbad.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
Plot-wise, there's little here beyond a few insubstantial strands.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
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.TV GuideAugust 12, 2009
Comedy at its most formulaic.Video-Reviewmaster.comJuly 13, 2005
Waste of Phil Hartman and SinbadMountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)August 14, 2003
Who decided Sinbad needed to star in a movie and what should we do to them when we find out?TheWorldJournal.comMay 27, 2003
Tedious and unfocused...the contrivance in this forgettable comedy is inexplicably unbearableKalamazoo GazetteJuly 29, 2002
here's that eviction noticeDeseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
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.Austin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
A film that lacks solid construction from the ground up, something that can't be "fixed in the editing," I'm afraid.
