Bringing Down the House

In this outrageous comedy, Steve Martin brings his unique brand of physical comedy and acerbic wit to the uproarious story of a man whose world is shaken when he encounters a woman who’s not just from a different ‘hood, but a different world. Peter Sanderson (Steve Martin) is a divorced, straight-laced, uptight, workaholic attorney who still loves his ex-wife (Jean Smart) and can’t figure out what he did wrong to make her leave him. However, Peter’s doing his best to move on, and he’s becoming smitten with a brainy, bombshell barrister he’s been chatting with on-line. But when she comes to his house for their first face to face, he quickly discovers she isn’t refined, isn’t Ivy League, and isn’t even a lawyer.

Instead, Charlene (Queen Latifah), a prison escapee who’s proclaiming her innocence and wants Peter to help her clear her name. But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud and shocking Charlene to turn Peter’s perfectly ordered life upside down, jeopardizing his efforts to get back with his wife and woo a billion-dollar client (Joan Plowright). As hysterical complications ensue, our unlikely pair has the chance to put each other’s lives on higher ground… if they don’t end up bringing down the house!

“Bringing Down the House,” Touchstone Pictures’ new comedy in association with Hyde Park Entertianment, directed by Adam Shankman and written by Jason Filardi. It has been rated PG-13 by the M.P.A.A.
