(On TV, June 1998) Guys organize party, guys meet girls, guys get in trouble, guys get happy ending and girls. Now that the plot has been given away, let’s just say that House Party is a notch over the average entry in this genre mainly due to a certain innocent fun that’s present both in the actors, and in the making of this movie. Far from every joke works, but those who do, do. Since it’s a musical, it’s no wonder that the movie’s highlight comes at mid-point during a delightful dance sequence and a good-natured rapping contest. (The French translation I saw had at least the good taste to leave the rapping in the original English version!) Good-natured, mostly harmless fun.
