Frequently Bought Together
Comedy directed by Danny DeVito, starring Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore as Alex and Nancy, a young professional New York couple who have bought the home of their dreams. But the house, though exactly what they dreamed of in almost every respect, turns out to have one major disadvantage: the tenant on the rent-controlled top floor. Mrs Connelly (Eileen Essel) is a cranky old woman who spends her days watching TV at full volume, practising for her brass band, and constantly interrupting the couple's lives with various outrageous demands and requests. Alex, a writer, is struggling to finish his novel for a pending deadline when Nancy loses her job, leaving them both stuck at home with their neighbour from hell. Eventually their frustration turns to homicidal fantasies as they dream of a way to get rid of Mrs Connelly once and for all...
Alex Rose (Ben Stiller - Meet the Parents, Zoolander, Tropic Thunder) and Nancy Kendricks (Drew Barrymore - Charlie's Angels, The Wedding Singer) are a young, professional, New York couple in search of their dream home. When they finally find the perfect Brooklyn brownstone they are giddy with anticipation. The duplex is a dream come true, complete with multiple fireplaces, except for one thing: Mrs. Connelly (Eileen Essel), the cranky old lady who lives on the rent-controlled top floor. Assuming she is elderly and ill, they take the apartment but their hopes are quickly dashed when they realize that Mrs. Connelly is an energetic senior who enjoys watching her television at top volume day in and day out and rehearsing in a brass band. A writer, Alex is attempting to finish his novel against a looming deadline. However, each day as he begins to write, he is interrupted by Mrs. Connelly's numerous demands and requests and what begins as a nuisance quickly escalates into an all-out war. When Nancy loses her job and the pair are trapped at home together with Mrs. Connelly, their rage turns to homicidal fantasy as they plot ways to get rid of their no-good neighbour.. --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

He & Drew Baryymore buy a house with a sitting tenant upstairs, a little old lady (who in 1 scene tells them how long she was married & how long ago her husband died, which leaves you adding the years up along with the on screen characters, which amussed me). Ben Stiller is a writter desperately trying to finish his novel on a dead line but with little daily chores & distractions from Mrs Connely upstairs! Soon both are driven mad by the constant noise etc, they go to extreme measures to try to vacate their upstairs tenant to build a nursery.
I found this funny at the start but about 3 quarters of the way through it just started getting silly, I beleive that my partner mentioned the phrase "Home Alone slap stick". If you're into the old falling down the stairs gag then this will be a good film to watch, but if you, like me are mainly after witty remarks & thoughtful side line jokes then maybe keep it on the side for a rainy day film.
Other than that it is very funny in places & if the write up interests you then it's worth a watch.
After buying the house, they move in, adding their own personal touches to the place. When the couple go upstairs to give their tenant a gift, they discover that she is surprisingly spry, running about, doing the river dance and taking part in a brass band. Will this women try her hardest to make Nancy and Alex's lives hell, and make them move out?
Could this at first hysterical situation, go as far as murder? You will have to rent or buy Our House and see!
Drew Barrymore has to be one of my all time favorite actresses. I think that she can do anything she wants to, and I believe that her talent can span from heart breaking emotional scenes to side splitting performances. In Our House (Duplex) Drew plays Nancy Kendricks, it is a performance that is very funny and interestingly layered, instead of just playing the character completely straight, she strives to add a lot of different dimensions and aspects to her role.Read more ›
If you found Meet The Parents frustrating and painful rather than amusing then I'd recommend you avoid this darker film of a similar ilk. However, if you liked Stiller in that - or are a fan of comedy derived from people being driven to insanity by unfortunate circumstance and canny antagonists (think Home Alone, but with Joe Pesci as the protagonist) - then this is a thoroughly entertaining film.
Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore play a young couple moving into a new place in New York. The seemingly sweet old lady who lives upstairs soon starts giving them all kinds of trouble and their patience wears pretty thin pretty quickly. The battle of wits that then ensues between the neighbours is at times rather funny and at times kind of dark. Stiller is on his usual angry man form and Barrymore is cutely sweet (at least in the beginning).
It's not one of the best films either have ever made but I thought there were enough giggles to make it worth a watch.
