"Parenthood": Director Ron Howard teams with Steve Martin and an all-star cast to create a hilarious, touching and unforgettable portrait of life's most rewarding occupation: "Parenthood". The Buckmans are a modern-day family facing the age-old dilemma of trying to raise children the "right" way. At the center of the storm is Gil (Steve Martin), who manages to keep his unique sense of humor while attempting to maintain a successful career and be a loving husband and parent, all at the same time. As Gil and the rest of the Buckmans discover, being the "perfect" parent often means just letting children be themselves. Mary Steenburgen, Rick Moranis, Tom Hulce, Jason Robards and Dianne Wiest add vibrant performances to this heart-warming comedy that Gannett Newspapers call "a funny, touching experience that will sweep you away." "Housesitter": Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn star in this hilarious romantic comedy about the consequences of "stretching" the truth. When architect Newton Davis' girlfriend Becky (Dana Delany) turns down his marriage proposal, his newly-built dream house suddenly becomes nothing more than an empty monument to her rejection. That is, until a chance encounter with Gwen (Hawn) turns his life upside-down. Intrigued by Newton's story, Gwen visits the house and decides to move in on her own. Resourceful and creative, Gwen is soon fixing up the house and charming Newton's family and neighbors - and all the while passing herself off as his new wife! Gwen even befriends Becky, who begins to see a Newton she never knew existed. Horrified at the deception yet unable to stop it, Newton finds himself playing along with her preposterous stories, her attempts at reconciling differences within the family and her campaign for his promotion at work. Finally, he convinces Gwen to fabricate their "divorce" so he can still get married to Becky - until he has a change of heart. It's a delightful, warmhearted and intelligent comedy from director Frank Oz.
