House Party (DVD)

When party time comes, it's time to tear the house down! If they getcaught, it's all over. But if they don't, it's just the beginning. Kidn' Play star in the uproarious comedy that launched the House Partycraze.

This is one of my all time favorite movies. The plot is simple but executed oh so well. Kid sneaks out his house to go to a party his dad told him not to go to after fighting in school. A tale of running from "hoods" and gettin in more trouble than planned. Without this all star acast this movie would be wack. Martin Lawrence, Robin Harris put in memorable performances. And it also has one the best scenes ever in a movie. The Dance scene where kid n play face off against sidney and charane is one of the most memorable scenes ive ever seen. That alone makes this movie a must have. The battle between Kid n Play is also entertaining. Pick it up.

I watched House Party for the first time when I was 16. I love this movie so much because the story perfectly what life was like for teens my age back then. I remember wearing the flat-top fade haircuts (still wear mine to this day), the dope clothes, writing the dope fresh rhymes, working hard in school, all in between fending off the knuckleheads, and talking to the girls. Besides being the movie of my generation, it truly is a classic African-American movie.

Made for the low low price of $3million by the Hudlin Brothers the film became a huge hit and a cult classic. The story follows Kid as he tries to go to Play's house party. The only problem: his Dad has grounded him for having a fight earlier that day. Sneaking out that night to go to the party he runs afoul of those Full Force knuckleheads (sporting jerricurl mullets) and racist cops. At the party he dances the night away macking both Sydney and Sherraine, then battles his boy play on the mic beating him handily cause Kid spelled backwards describes Play best. After walking Sydney home he comes this close to getting some. Unfortunately when her parents come home he's forced to leave. Outside he runs afoul of those Full Force knuckleheads. That leads to a stint in jail and some really inspired rapping from kid. His friends bail him out and after some burger king, Kid sneaks back in his house where he pays the painfully funny price for his night of fun.

The film chock full of laughs with perfect comic timing in every frame. Rappers Kid N' Play give great performances as do the members of Full force. However, the films supporting cast is what makes this movie a classic.

This movie is a classic. The first and only good "House Party" film. There are 3sequals that are just stupid, but this one is hilarious. The music is good, the jokes are funny and the story line is great. Christopher "Kid" is a highschool student who gets into a fight during lunch that gets him grounded by his "pops", but he was planning on going to Party at his pal "Play"'s house so that he could redeme himself from an embarassing rap session during the school talent show. He sneaks out of the house and the minute he closed the front door his dad wakes up and discovers that Kid is gone. Kid is now trying to make his way to the party in one piece as the guys he got into a fight with earlier that day are trying to kill him in the street. When he finally makes it to the party, he has a great time dancing with the girl of his dreams, falls inlove with another girl, redems himself as a rapper and has to make his way home where once again he runs into the bullies but this time he ends up in jail where he is about to become entertainment for the sexually frustrated inmates. Kid calls upon his talent for rhyming to get out of that situation. Finally he makes it home and just when he thinks he had a successful day without injury "Pops" appears at his bedroom door with a belt. This movie will never go out of style, the lines are just too perfect and the comedy is just too good.

Yes, every one did a good job playing their parts, but Mr. Robin Harris steals this movie every time. His stature, his attitude and demeanor are hilarious to watch. He exemplifies comedy so naturally. There will never be another like him. I'm just grateful I was able to appreciate him while he was here.
RIP, Mr. Robin Harris. Thanks for the pure, timeless humor.

Before Superbad or Project X, there was House Party. Just a couple of guys wanting to have an epic party, Kid 'n Play dodge parents, cops, thugs and trouble in order to throw the jam of the year! After around 25 years, this movie still holds up. Just as funny as ever and the soundtrack still gets you off your feet. Martin Lawrence steals the show and Robin Harris still owns the screen, but Kid 'n Play and all the cast do a great job with this hilarious script!

I am not ashamed to admit that I was 26 years old when this movie first came out...and I loved it! I still love this movie...especially knowing that many of the actors were my age when they were filming!

My sons, now in high school also love this movie. The music and the moves, but they do have fun making jokes about the clothes. It was a movie that really tapped into young African-American's and their high school, hip hop world. The Hudlin's were indeed influrenced by Cooley High, but so what! That was a great influence. I also love the messages that are placed in the movie without beating you over the head. Safe sex, no drinking, being there for your friends...even if it means leaving them on their porch while you take their dj equipment.

Frankly I can't imagine Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff in this movie. By using Kid n Play, everybody in the movie WERE friends! This made it believable.

My son's favorite show of "good friends" are the "fellas" taking Groove home because he he was drunk, propped him against the front door, ring the doorbell, cut and RUN!!!!

So, find those leather medalions, bicycle shorts and work on your high top fade, this is a must see movie.
