Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn star in this hilarious romantic comedy about the consequences of "stretching" the truth.When architect Newton Davis' girlfriend Becky (Dana Delany) turns down his marriage proposal, his newly-built dream house suddenly becomes nothing more than an empty monument to her rejection. That is, until a chance encounter with Gwen (Hawn) turns his life upside-down.Intrigued by Newton's story, Gwen visits the house and decides to move in on her own. Resourceful and creative, Gwen is soon fixing up the house and charming Newton's family and neighbors - and all the while passing herself off as his new wife! Gwen even befriends Becky, who begins to see a Newton she never knew existed.Horrified at the deception yet unable to stop it, Newton finds himself playing along with her preposterous stories, her attempts at reconciling differences within the family and her campaign for his promotion at work. Finally, he convinces Gwen to fabricate their "divorce" so he can still get married to Becky - until he has a change of heart. It's a delightful, warmhearted and intelligent comedy from director Frank Oz.

the house..... the furnishings..... and they way its decorated....... love love love, .....
I wish I could have every single piece of furniture that was in that house loved it all so my style too...
bet you have never heard of anyone getting a movie just to study the set layout and design have ya ?
This is a movie with heart, tension, and lots of laughs! Rent (or buy) it, you'll be glad that you did!
Anyhow, it comes in at 90 minutes and I would recommend it to catch Martin and Hawn when they were still young enough to pull this off.
A cute and zany rom com, "Housesitter" explores the world of an uptight straight man, frustrated in his personal and work lives. When Magic Pixie Dream Girl Hawn sweeps into his life and creates a fantastic fictional backstory for their romantic "marriage" (and her own colorful pedigree), Martin's character starts to see the possibilities when he realizes after his initial resistance that his coworkers, friends, and family prefer his "new" persona that Hawn has created for him.
Martin and Hawn work beautifully together here, in a classic comedy that still remains well-paced and very, very funny. As their characters begin to grow into their fictional personas, it is easy for the viewer to become caught up in the fantasy of reinventing yourself, perhaps into the person you always wanted to be but never dared to become.

I rarely give a movie four stars and five is almost unheard of so you KNOW this one is a keeper!
