Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Dan Mirvish's "fatabulous" musical comedy Open House, is a tangled tale of intrigue, romance, lost love and the one thing everyone has in common: the American dream of finding a home. We meet Barry (Anthony Rapp, Rent) - the eager-to-please real estate agent desperate to sell a house. There's Debbie and Joel (Kellie Martin, ER and James Duval, Donnie Darko) - two "Sexy Swipers" who spend their Sundays making quick love in open houses and then stealing trinkets to put in the next house. Down-on-his-luck jewel thief Dave (Jerry Doyle, Babylon 5) has a broken-down getaway car, so he pretends to be an endocrinologist interested in buying a house. There's Ron and Gloria - a couple of adulterous cops trying to break a big case. And finally we meet Marjorie (Sally Kellerman, M*A*S*H), a dispirited realtor with a penchant for younger men and tequila. This disparate group of strangers comes together in the search for true love, a bag of jewels and the perfect two-story colonial

Review

"A crowd favorite." -- S. Mark Rhodes, Films in Review

"A funny, fast-paced and above all very unique film. A film filled with interesting and hilarious songs about real estate that you won't be able to get out of your head! It works beautifully. Every musical number resulted in an eruption of applause from the audience. Kellerman is simply on fire!" -- FilmThreat

"A must-see favorite! Super cast! Kellie Martin scores as a yuppie fond of quickie sex in strange houses; Sally Kellerman, as a boozy, unsuccessful agent, delivers a torchy realtor's lament; and Ann Magnuson shows up very late and nearly walks off with the whole movie." -- Baltimore CityPaper

"A triumph...unique and flavorful! The show is clearly stolen by Kellerman whose "Sellin' A Dream" song is the most completely marketable and pleasing thing in the movie. Hopefully, the Academy will remember it come nomination time because a proliferation of films like 'Open House' could usher in a new era in the musical genre." -- Jonathan Hickman, Einsiders.com

"Among its many send-ups are a showstopping duet, 'Sellin' a Dream,' performed by Sally Kellerman and Jerry Doyle." -- Regina Weinreich, The East Hampton Star

"Awesome! This is a hilarious, crazy movie! Thumbs up to director, Dan Mirvish; Sally Kellerman is excellent!" -- Jim Muscarella, The Improper

"In a rare and demanding move, all singing was performed and recorded live on set. Lovely!" -- Variety

"It's Fantabulous! With OPEN HOUSE, Dan Mirvish has crafted the first great musical of independent film. Amongst a great cast, Sally Kellerman, Ann Magnuson, and Kellie Martin shine as they deliver Mirvish's toe-tapping tunes which you won't be able to get out of your head. Stylistically, it's a ingenious blend of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Preston Sturges, and Robert Altman. One of the songs is entitled 'Do You Love this House?' And the answer is a definite yes!" -- Terry Keefe, Venice Magazine

"Mirvish, who is perhaps best known for co-founding the Slamdance Film Festival, creates a very funny and sardonic atmosphere that will have you laughing throughout....A genuine delight! The musical numbers are nothing short of hilarious." -- Larry Katz, WTTR Radio

"People loved it. It was funny. And it's about time somebody made a Real Estate Musical!" -- Carloss James Chamberlin, Senses of Cinema

Having seen an advance screening at the Egyptian theater in Hollywood, I was thrilled to see the return of Dan Mirvish' directorial prowess. Not since his 1994 film " Omaha the Movie", have I been as impressed with a directing style. From the broad dance numbers to the very funny song lyrics, Dan's dry wit and humor is abundant in this film. I was told that the actors sang live on set and that very little was done in editing. How bold a concept to let the actor's true talents show throughout the project. I just hope I dont have to wait another 10 years for the next Dan Mirvish film.

"Do you love this house? Do you love this house?"

Yeah, I really did. Dan Mirvish has wonderfully created a light, hysterical and crazy story about achieving the American Dream: buying your first house.

This movie's awesome. I loved it. Just off-kilter enough to be funny and heartfelt without being diabetes inducing. I absolutely loved it!

My favorite part was Anthony Rapp's song "My House" towards the end. Everything that he says in that song was exactly how I felt when me and my family moved out of our house. I lived in my house for like ten years and that's exactly how I felt when we had to leave. And you have to know I was so pissed at the people who bought it from us when I saw that they'd let the lawn die!

I think this is why Open House works, because everyone can relate to this.

Great job. I really loved it. Hysterical, great performances, great screenplay and awesome camera work!

I found out about this movie becaues Anthony Rapp was in it. I knew nothing about it untill i spotted it at the store. I picked it up, read the back, and thought it sounded interesting. A musical about real estate, something i've never seen before. I bought and watched it the minute i got home and completely LOVED it. The songs were catchy and it had a strange but good story line. It was fun to see people you wouldn't noremally see singing, singing songs about loveing a house or sexy swiping or making a safe houes of love. It's not a normal musical, but i love all the songs and by the end of the movie i was singing Fantabulous and It's My House. It definetly a movie i'll never fotget.

This movie was an absolute joy to watch! It constantly surprised me - first with the musical numbers, which are like none others I'd seen in a movie - and then with the heart of the characters (Anthony Rapp was amazing!),and the depth of the story (don't reveal the ending!). Somehow this movie slipped through the cracks on its big screen release (I saw it in Santa Fe), but now's our chance to get the DVD. I can't wait to share this with everyone I know. Oh, and Sally Kellerman was fantabulous!

I'm a RENT fan, so when I found this Anthony Rapp musical movie I had never heard of I was pretty excited. When I watched it I couldn't believe how bad it was. The story line has some (but very little) potential, but to call it a musical is being very, very generous. The "music" is pathetic as are the lyrics. As for the singers, Anthony Rapp does the best he can with the weak material. The rest of the singers' voices are as bad as the "songs" they are singing. I finished watching it because I had invested in it (my mistake) but it was actually hard to get through it. I felt so sorry for Rapp to have been in such a low-budget, poor project; he is so very talented. If you are an Anthony Rapp fan, do yourself a favor, continue to enjoy him in RENT recordings and don't spoil your image of him by watching this fiasco.

I first had an interest in this movie after doing a search for my favorite actor, Anthony Rapp. I originally rented the movie and after renting and watching it several times , I fell in love with Open House. So much so that I immediately purchased my own copy, as my friends and I watch Open House with veneration. This is the general consensus of everyone I know who loves this movie. My friends and online buddies and I quote the lines all the time. The entire concept of a real estate musical is pure genius. The movie starts on a "high note" and doesn't disappoint. Open House is refreshing because of the absence of "cool special effects". The movie has a loose plot at best, dorky but lovable characters, and is entertaining in that it does not seek to 'wow' its viewers. So, not only was the film fun for the whole family and all of my friends, but it was also original and innovative, an instant classic in my movie collection.

"Do you love this House? Do you love this House? Do you really, really love this house?" Thats lyrics from just one of the memorable songs from this fun and inventive musical! I loved the cast: Anthony Rapp from RENT and DAZED AND CONFUSED! Kellie Martin from LIFE GOES ON and ER! The still sexy Sally Kellerman! Tired of the same old movies at the theaters? Buy OPEN HOUSE for a breath of fresh air!

Independent minded, to say the least. It has some rough edges production-wise, but it is infectiously fun. Had me laughing and singing along (god-forbid, if you've heard me sing!)

It also has some of the most fun DVD extras I've seen. Why bother with film school ?Just watch the "how-to" features on the DVD!
