Notebook Reviews: HOUSESITTER

3.5 out of 5 stars

Frank Oz – 1992

Housesitter is an enjoyable comedy from everyone’s favourite Muppet man, director Frank Oz. The film is anchored by a great performance from Steve Martin, who has never been better as the everyman whose life is thrown into turmoil by an unwanted visitor. Goldie Hawn is also good value, even if her character lacks real depth – she’s just there to cause mayhem.

It might not be the most innovative film ever, but Housesitter is good fun.
