Guest House Blu-ray Review

You’ll want to check out of the “Guest House.”

Engaged couple Sarah and Blake think they’ve found their dream house. The only problem is this house has a guest house…with a guest in it. The guest? Randy Cockfield- a rude, obnoxious, inconsiderate drug taking party animal. He claims he’ll only be there for a short time, but things don’t pan out that way. Worse still, Randy begins to feud with Blake which in turn creates a rift between Sarah and Blake. Will matters continue to escalate between the home owners and the house guest or can things be worked out?

Directed by Sam Macaroni, “Guest House” is a cheaply made “comedy” with one of the strangest casts I’ve seen in awhile with Pauly Shore, Steve-O, Chris Kattan, Billy Zane, Mike Castle, Aimee Teegarden, Lou Ferrigno, and Bobby Lee. Shore is the main star of this vehicle here and for those wondering if this is his comeback movie, you needn’t think that. In fact, I’d wager much of the cast would leave this one off their resume. Shore himself looks completely disinterested in the role of Randy. Who can blame him with the material he’s given? The only ones who seem to be trying here are Mike Castle and Aimee Teegarden as the young couple Blake and Sarah.

Somehow, it took 3 writers to script this embarrassingly raunchy comedy (Troy Duffy, Sam Macaroni and Sean Bishop) even though it seems like there is no script. Much of the runtime feels like they just shot a movie at a wealthy person’s home and just made up scenes on the spot. The attempts at humor fail miserably here unless you find dumb penis jokes, drug jokes, and a possum gags amusing.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? The bright digital cinematography shines in hi-def.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? The 5.1 track does the job.
Extras:
* Digital copy
* Lionsgate trailers including a trailer for “Guest House.”
* 7 deleted scenes
* “Behind The Scenes”- A featurette with interviews, character discussions, and behind-the-scenes footage.
