However, when she comes to his house for their first face-to-face, she isn’t refined, isn’t Ivy League, and isn’t even a lawyer. Instead, it’s Charlene, 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 effort to get back with his wife and won a billion dollar client.

Really something, Boo.
OK, so the white-yuppie-and-black-ghetto-person-joining-up idea has been used a number of times in movies, but the dialog between Steve Martin and Queen Latifah makes this one worthwhile. Probably the best scenes are Betty White’s nasty comments, Queen Latifah teaching Missi Pyle a lesson, Steve Martin dressed – and attempting to talk – like a rapper (especially because of what Joan Plowright ends up doing in that scene), and of course, Eugene Levy’s statements ending with “Boo”. “Bringing Down the House” really does bring down the house. Completely silly, but fun nevertheless.
Who ever would have imagined Joan Plowright (aka Laurence Olivier’s widow) doing what she did and saying what she said in the rapper scene?
People tend to cut comedies lots of slack as long as they make us laugh. They can be blasphemous, tasteless, lowbrow, highbrow, moronic, offensive, racist, subversive, disgusting, pretentious, pointless, shallow, blatantly left-wing, blatantly right-wing, vulgar, cruel, preachy, you name it — if they make us laugh our butts off, we’ll forgive them any and all of these sins. If they just aren’t funny, like this turkey, that’s when we start noticing all the bad stuff.
And there is plenty of bad stuff, believe me, starting with Steve Martin, who exhausted his tiny bag of comedic tricks more than twenty years ago and who has been coasting along ever since. I think this movie is where he finally coasts to a dead stop. Please, Hollywood, just leave him there.
And then there’s the story. Bringing Down the House is a clash-of-cultures movie evidently written by people who don’t have a clue about either of the cultures involved in the clash. The result is a bunch of crudely drawn caricatures of nonexistent social types. Nobody thinks white people or black people are anything like this, and it is insulting to have to sit through a movie made by people who think we do.
