House Arrest, directed by Harry Winer (1996), is a film about a couple of kids, and a few additional kids later on, wanting to help their parents deal with their relationship problems but their plan ended up getting out of hand. It’s a fun concept from the about how children would handle themselves if their parents weren’t around/fixing problems caused by their parents in some way. It’s a very 80’s/90’s type of family movie. I feel like there are more than a few out there that are in the same vein as this one. It’s enjoyable as long as you don’t think too hard about it. However, it’s the only one that I can remember that ended with very serious consequences that was soft-balled to the audience in a rapid wrap-up. Overall, it’s a fun family movie, keep it at that.
