      From 1992, Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn delight in Housesitter, a really fun comedy about a woman who moves into a man’s house and assumes the role as his wife, much to his surprise when he shows up back in his hometown.

      Hawn is a hoot as Gwen Phillips, who ends up beloved by absolutely everyone


      in town, including her pretend husband’s parents. She has all of them eating out of the palm of her hand, evening taking her side over their son’s. Her one-night stand gave her just enough information to be convincing, especially with her likable and nice-girl looks.

      Martin is funny in all the right ways as ...


      • architect Newton Davis, who is flustered by the whole thing. Then, though, he sees an opportunity to use the fake marriage to try and hook up with his old flame, Becky Metcalf (Dana Delany). Becky seems interested again herself, all because of Gwen’s presence.

        The movie is a romantic comedy, so it’s no secret

        that ultimately Gwen and Newton fall for each other and then have to figure out if it’s real or not. Their connection is a lot of fun; it’s exciting and even a bit unsuspecting.

        Also starring are Peter MacNicol, Julie Harris, and Donald Moffat.

        I really love Housesitter; it’s a great way to spend most any evening.
