When the movie came out I somehow wasn’t interested in watching it right away. I’m not always in the mood for Steve Martin, although his movies always make me laugh. And Bringing Down The House made me really scream laughing during some scenes, I really worried about my neighbors that late at night, but I couldn’t help it. I really also love Queen Latifah. She so rocks as an actress. She should do many more movies.
I just noticed this movie got awful ratings. Oh well, I dunno whatever the people’s problem was with this movie, but I loved it. It was absolutely entertaining and funny. Including that pot-smoking old lady with her doggy. LOL

SYNOPSIS from Rotten Tomatoes
Peter Sanderson (Steve Martin) is a divorced workaholic L.A. lawyer trying to forget his ex-wife (Jean Smart). Successful but lonely, Peter falls for an online chat buddy and is eager to meet his dream girl, until he meets the real woman behind the screen name and realizes she is nothing like he thought. Instead of a svelte blonde businesswoman he comes face to face with Charlene Morton (Queen Latifah), a sassy African American ex-con who is eager to infiltrate Peter’s stereotypically uptight white suburban world. Charlene wants Peter to defend her and prove she’s innocent of a crime that she didn’t commit but Peter wants nothing to do with the fast-talking homegirl. However, Peter’s geeky best friend Howie (Eugene Levy) feels different and begins to woo the voluptuous diva with “hip” street lingo and hysterically deadpan come-ons. Soon enough, Charlene is shacked up in Peter’s palatial estate, throwing wild parties, and opening his eyes to life, love and infectious freedom. Steve Martin and Queen Latifah are a fresh and dynamic comic team in this hysterical spin on the black-white buddy comedy that is a mixture of PRETTY WOMAN and THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR.
