Guest House seems to harken back to the 1990s raunchy comedy and stars Pauly Shore, Mike Castle, Aimee Teeharden, Billy Zane (whose name isn’t even on the front cover) and Steve-O (whose name IS on the front cover).

Lionsgate provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


When engaged couple Sarah (AIMEE TEEGARDEN) and Blake (MIKE CASTLE) buy their dream home, there’s a catch: a party animal named Randy (PAULY SHORE) in the guest house who refuses to leave! When Randy throws a wild, sexy pool party, the cops show up, and Blake gets arrested. Can he and Sarah get through their backyard wedding without a certain loser crashing the party — and ruining their marriage?



This release comes with a super-glossy, title-embossed slip cover. Inside is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy. Features include a short Behind-the-Scenes (3:12) featurette, 7 Deleted Scenes (11:34) and the Trailer (2:30).


VIDEO – 3¾/5

Lionsgate releases Guest House onto Blu-ray release where it’s presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. Not sure what was going on with the film’s lighting crew, but this movie looks overly bright in places, more so than I would expect even from a straight-forward comedy. Detail is okay but nothing exceptional and colors are somewhat vibrant thanks to the aforementioned lighting.

AUDIO – 3½/5

The disc comes with a standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which is pretty unremarkable. However, dialogue does come across with good clarity and during the partying sequences there is a minor amount of depth making usage of the front and rear channels.
