Address Comments To:
HOUSEGUEST leaves no room for doubt that the movie STARS Sinbad. Sometimes difficult to tell whether he is acting or just being himself, Sinbad and the situations he creates are genuinely funny, and the movie's storyline and supporting characters come to life in his presence. What HOUSEGUEST fails to deliver is consistent morality, portraying teenage sex and rebellion as natural and acceptable. Also, though Sinbad feels remorse for his dishonesty, his behavior changes little, implying it is acceptable because he knows his limits and is cool enough to handle it. While the movie does portray his behavior as unacceptable for others, the inevitable hypocrisy detracts from an otherwise enjoyable movie.
