Movie Reviews

Excellent musical
Michael Patrick | California | 10/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Truly amazing, and wonderfully creative! *SLIGHT SPOILERS IN

""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!

This movie is FANTABULOUS!

"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."
Just a fun, silly movie

"If you're in the mood to just sit back and have a good time, this is the movie for you. Is the script the best? No. Are the songs the greatest? No. Is the acting perfect? Not usually. Is it silly? YES. Are the songs catchy? Hell yes. Is it obvious everyone involved had a *really* great time making this film? OH yeah.

It's a fun movie. Don't take it too seriously. If you do, you won't enjoy it, which means you totally missed the point.

I rarely feel the need to leave reviews, especially if other reviews are plentiful. I'm leaving one for this, because a particular reviewer is unfairly calling people out. I enjoyed this film to the point that I think other people should watch it. No one told me to write this review. I'm 24 years old. I do have a mind of my own."
