Bringing Down the House
Source: Catholic News Service
Passable comedy in which a dull tax attorney (Steve Martin) mistakenly gets involved with a boisterous escaped con (Queen Latifah) who coaches him on how to win back his estranged wife (Jean Smart) and kids while insisting he can get her exonerated. Director Adam Shankman milks exaggerated racial stereotypes for occasional laughs but goes to extremes with an unnecessarily vicious catfight. Some comically intended violence, sexual situations and crass references, brief recreational drug use and an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
