Movie Info

A retired father resorts to extreme measure to teach his two grown sons the importance of responsibility in this comedy starring Danny DeVito and Katie Sagal. Dad (DeVito) has always worked hard to provide for his family. Now he's ready to retire, and enjoy the good life. But regaining access to his rec room won't come easy, because his two bumbling, twenty-something sons Elliot (Ryan Hansen) and Quinn (Skyler Stone) have lived at home so long they don't know the first thing about being grown-ups. Hoping to give their beloved little slackers a crash course in real life, mom and dad hit the road, leaving Elliot and Quinn to figure things out for themselves. Before long the young ne'er-do-wells are scrambling to pay the bills, and turning the house upside down as mom and dad keep tabs on them from afar. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Lowbrow comedy with lots of sex, language, and alcohol.

Audience Reviews for Housebroken

Big misfire. They had a good idea for a film but didn't execute it correctly. Failure to Launch was better than this film. Danny DeVito, Katel Sagal, and Tom Wilson are great in the film. However, the guys playing DeVito's sons are miscast.
