Steve Martin makes this movie...,

This review is from: Housesitter [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
If you're a Steve Martin fan, then you'll be a Housesitter fan. It's nowhere near as edgy as his early screen offerings, but it is funny in its own way and his chemistry with co-star Goldie Hawn is an added attraction. Steve's character, Newton, builds his dream house and unveils it to his long-term girlfriend as he proposes, but she turns him down. Newton meets Gwen, they spend the night together and he steals away in the morning. Armed with a doodle of the house, scribbled by Newton on a napkin, free spirited Gwen decides that it will do her nicely. She locates the property and moves in, announcing to all - including Newton's parents - that she is the new Mrs Newton Davies. Does love blossom between Newton and Gwen, or will the ex-girlfriend get her foot back in the door? If you're looking for a few laughs, Housesitter will provide.
