Everyone has that go-to comedy film they can’t stop re-watching all through their childhood to adulthood. Well, Bringing Down The House (2003) is mine, and I particularly watch it when bored or feeling blue.
Steve Martin's silliness paired with Queen Latifah's don't care about nothing attitude, makes a dynamic explosion that cracks you up from the beginning to the end of the film.
I also love the movie’s ensemble cast of favorite stars I grew to love including Eugene Levy, the late Betty White, Joan Plowright, Jean Smart, Missi Pyle, the adorable T. Jones, and Michael Rosenbaum, among others.
