  • Comic dynamos Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn pair up for the first time in director Frank Oz's romantic comedy of an architect and waitress who spin wild tales about being married to each other, only to discover that their stories aren't entirely false. When Davis (Martin) tries to eject unwanted housesitter Gwen (Hawn) from his lovely but unoccupied house, he discovers that Gwen's romantic lies to the locals about their whirlwind courtship and wedding have captured the townsfolk's hearts and made jealous the woman who turned down Davis's marriage proposal months before. Seeing the opportunity to win back his sweetheart, Becky, Davis agrees to let Gwen stay in the house while they pretend to be married. As Gwen's clever stories bring Becky and a deserved promotion within reach, Davis must figure out how much of his sham marriage is truly a sham. Hilarious when on their own, Hawn and Martin ratchet comedy up to a whole new level when they team up in one of the most outrageous and backward courtships ever.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...An inspired game of charades....Lively direction by Frank Oz and a wonderful cast ..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...Much of the humor in HOUSESITTER is generated by the carefully modulated performances of Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn....Martin is very good here....Hawn's performance is the keystone of the movie, and she is wonderful..."
