Classic Movies from the 90s and Early 2000s

1990 film "House Party"

House Party is a 1990 original Hollywood musical, American comedy film released by New Line Cinema. It stared a number of actors who used their opportunity with this movie to make their big break in the entertainment industry in the 90s, with a special cameo by funk musician George Clinton. This was Robin Harris’ (Pops) last on-screen performance before his untimely death, shortly after the film was completed.

This musical film showed black teenagers how we hardly ever see them in films, as silly and normal, average kids who share common interests to party and dance, in comparison to being portrayed as threatening and negative, or revolving around social problems, thriller elements, drugs or any particular form of seriousness.

The film was written and directed by Reginald Hudlin, and produced by his brother Warrington Hudlin, based on Reginald’s award-winning Harvard University student film. The film grossed $26,385,627 in its run at the box office with its widest release being 700 theaters. The film has since become a cult classic. Upon its initial release, the film garnered critical acclaim.

The lead roles were originally written for DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.
