Peter Sanderson is a divorced, straight-laced, uptight attorney who still loves his ex-wife and can’t figure out what he did wrong to make her leave him. However, Peter’s trying to move on, and he’s smitten with a brainy, bombshell barrister he’s been chatting with online. However, when she comes to his house for their first face-to-face, she isn’t refined, isn’t Ivy League, and isn’t even a lawyer. Instead, it’s Charlene, a prison escapee who’s proclaiming her innocence and wants Peter to help her clear her name. But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud and shocking Charlene to turn Peter’s perfectly ordered life upside down, jeopardizing his effort to get back with his wife and woo a billion dollar client.

  • This film, although badly reviewed by many people, proves to be a fun time at the movies. “Bringing Down the House” is a very funny movie and your bound to have a good time, there are just some hilarious scenes in it! Steve Martin and Queen Latifah are a great team. Of course there are also many clichés, this film is not a surrealistic art movie and certainly will not be indicated for an Oscar. Even if this movie is not very memorable, it is certainly worth watching!
