Bringing Down the House
- Director: Adam Shankman
- Cert: 15PG
- Details: US / 105 mins / .
If you've seen the trailer for Bringing Down the House, there really is no reason to go and see the movie. As trite as it is tired the central comedic premise of an urban white man getting lessons in life by a street smart African American errs on casual - if unintentional - racial stereotyping. And despite the best efforts of the always professional Martin, the talented Latifah and nice support from Eugene Levy, there's little to raise more than a wry smile. Indeed, the horrors of seeing Steve Martin attempting to pass himself off as a honky homeboy was so acutely embarrassing that I'm surprised he's not in therapy.
