HouseSitter (1992)

(PG) 102 mins

Synopsis: Con artist Gwen moves into Newton’s empty house without his knowledge, and begins setting up house posing as his new wife.

Director: Frank Oz

Writers: Mark Stein (story & screenplay) and Brian Grazer (story)

Stars: Steve MartinGoldie Hawn and Dana Delany

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  The immense charisma of Martin and Hawn really carry this movie and hold your attention, but the script is just not funny enough as a comedy to justify actually sitting down and paying attention to this film throughout, and it’s too silly to be a compelling love story…I guess it’s okay to have on in the background while you’re being productive doing something else, though.
