Critic Reviews of "House Party"Time OutAugust 16, 2007
Clearly this is no masterpiece, but as its US reception indicated, it is a product overdue in the market, and it compares well with its anaemic counterparts.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
All of the performances are good and the soundtrack pulses with humor as well as decibels.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
There's a lot more energy and social reality in this picture than one is accustomed to finding in teen exploitation movies; the cutting is often dynamic, and Hudlin generally does a good job of keeping things moving.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
[It's] fast-moving, never dull, extremely funny, and manages to touch, with lighthearted (and R-rated) profundity on almost every youthful issue you can imagine, including police harassment, teenage sex, the all-too-easy road to jail and alcohol drinking.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
House Party isn't a great movie, but it's heartfelt and enormously winning.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
House Party is silly and high-spirited and not particularly significant, and that is just as it should be.Cinema CrazedApril 01, 2012
An energetic and hilarious party film with charming stars, a killer soundtrack, and some great moments...Film4March 18, 2008
This is a feel-good no-brainer with a party-loving cast and flat-top hairdos you could play pool on.TV GuideJuly 18, 2007
Crude and cartoony but hypnotic in its infectious energy, this low-budget comedy about a night in the lives of some black teenagers is an auspicious debut from brothers Reginald (directing) and Warrington (producing) Hudlin.EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 07, 2006
The first--and best--of the three black comedies made of the same concept, this joyful picture was far less cloying than its white counterpart movies of the 1960s.Austin ChronicleMarch 10, 2003
This is the only House Party that counts.Deseret News, Salt Lake CitySeptember 26, 2002
What is most appealing about House Party, and what sets it apart from many movies in the same genre, is that there is an energy and exuberance, a joy of living being celebrated here that is absolutely infectious.
