Episode 203 - House Arrest

On this week's episode, the gang gets angry as they tear apart the 1996 give-hope-to-children-of-divorce comedy, House Arrest! Just how is that all these parents are dumb enough to fall for this? How has no one pointed out that our protagonist is a total psycho? And the Küb is most definitely getting the chair for this! PLUS: People were definitely having sex in that basement.

House Arrest stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Pollak, Kyle Howard, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Wallace Shawn, Christopher McDonald, Ray Walston and Mooky Arizona; directed by Harry Winer.

I was alive and watching TV back in 1996, and I never even heard of this movie until I saw Siskel and Ebert slam it in their "Worst of 1996" show. Never saw a single as for it. Clearly this was greenlighted because of "Home Alone", and I am surprised the studio didn't try to market it as a "Home Alone " ripoff.

Speaking of cheap ripoffs of music of the time, the trailer has a near copyright infringing version of Violent Femmes "Blister in the Sun."

I barely remembered that this existed.

Geez, Mantis, Parker Lewis Can't Lose. Some DEEP CUTS baby, and I loved it. I was hoping you'd even go so far as mentioning Briscoe County Jr. and The Secret World of Alex Mac, i.e everybody I knows' first masterbation story.

Man, I remember this movie. I actually remember seeing TV spots for it back in 1996 and was mostly drawn to it because of Jennifer Love Hewitt. I actually watched this on HBO, and I thought of it as a time-waster. I didn't mind it, but I can see that this movie sucked. Although I did like seeing JLH in that bikini at the end when they were in Hawaii, though I was a little disappointed that Jennifer Tilly wasn't a bikini.
