Editorial Reviews

Dad (Danny DeVito, TV's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) has finally retired and wants to enjoy his golden years relaxing at home with his lovely wife. But his two twentysomething slacker sons have no plans to leave the nest anytime soon! So there's only one solution Dad and Mom (Katey Sagal, TV's Married with Children) move out! It's either sink or swim for clueless Elliot (Ryan Hansen, TV's Party Down) and Quinn (Skyler Stone, Van Wilder), who find themselves home alone for the first time with no one to pay the bills.

While I had never heard of "House Broken," I was hoping this little known picture might be an undiscovered gem. I love Danny DeVito, probably more than it's healthy to admit, and matching him with Katey Sagal seemed like a dream pairing. I had a fair sense of what to expect. Taking its cue from any number of rude and raucous teen comedies, I was expecting a bit of silly fun with the king of bad taste (DeVito) at the helm. But while this film toils in overdrive and throws in every sight gag imaginable, the material falls so flat--it was truthfully a bit painful to watch. Listen, I wasn't anticipating Academy Award material, but this frantic film is so leaden and unfunny--and it commits the greatest sin of all, it sidelines DeVito as the most realistic and tasteful character amidst a sea of hamming buffoons.

Written and directed by Sam Harper (the credits listed above on 11/13/10 are incorrect), "House Broken" tells the story of two brothers who won't grow up. DeVito plays their father, a recently retired fireman, who starts to fear the boys are incapable of living in the real world as they have zero common sense and even fewer life skills. It doesn't help that their mother (Sagal) enables their infantile behavior. DeVito kidnaps his wife and leaves the boys to fend for themselves with no food, income, or worldly knowledge. Mayhem ensues with the boys and their pack of ridiculous (but surprisingly underdeveloped) friends. DeVito's harsh life lesson results in the house being all but destroyed, but it's worth it--you know it always is!--as the boys take very small steps toward maturity. The jokes are obvious and repetitive--I watched this with 2 other friends who LOVE dumb humor and I could count the laughs between the 3 of us on one hand.

I am stunned that Danny DeVito allowed himself to be part of a total piece of trash entertainment. I got into it for about 25 minutes and threw it in the trash! I have no problem with language and sexual content, it is unfortunately part of movies these days but this disastrous attempt at entertainment was nothing but raw and vulgar, tasteless, lewd beyond reason. The story line was junk and the actors/ acting were totally rank amateur class. What a waste!
