It was a decent movie but not the best. IT was funny at times but did not have a good plot. It was not orginal at all. The movie was not orginally intended to be a House Party movie so people should consider that fact when comparing it to the other ones. That is why Kid and Play were not in it. But it did take alot of elements from that movie so that's why Newline decided to promote it as being part of the series to make it more marketable. It also takes the idea from Ferris Bueller's Day off movie, which starred Matthew Broderick as a highschooler who plotted to get out of school and also had to get an expensive car (that he took without permission) fixed. [...] I think the acting was fairly good. I mean it is a comedy and you don't need serious skills. I loved the other movies and the acting was good but it was not oscar worthy or anything. Marques Houston, the leader singer of IMx, was convincing and has had previous acting experience from Sister,Sister, House Party 3, Different World and Bebe Kids . The other two who not had as much often sounded fake, particular Jerome, even though he had more experience (was in HOuse Party 3/Different World) than Kelton who never did it before. Some of the jokes fell flat, but alot of it was still funny. The other actors did a decent job. THe movie did not have enough obstacles or drama. It was too easy for them to get away with what they did. Also they could have focused more on the party. All and all...I thought the movie was bad at first but after watching it again I have realized that it is a decent movie that combines alot of elements of past films. It is not better than some of the other ones like House Party 1 or House PArty 3, two hillarious movies but it was a bit better than the second one. Even if you are not an IMx/Immature fan, you can enjoy the movie if you give it a chance. I would only buy after seeing it [...] though.
