Play’s parents are out of town, and he’s planning the house party to end all house parties. His best friend, Kid, wants to go more than anything, knowing Sydney (Tisha Campbell-Martin), the hottest girl in school, is sure to be there. But when Kid gets into a fight at school, his father grounds him. Still determined to go, Kid sneaks out of the house and faces one calamity after another as he makes his way to Play’s house and the party of the school year

A sleeper hit, and a cult classic favorite, House Party was both a critical and commercial success upon its release: winner of multiple awards at the Sundance Film Festival, nominated seven times at the Indie Spirit Awards, and grossed over $20 million on a $2.5 million budget. With a popular soundtrack by Motown Records, the film spawned multiple sequels and a remake, and in 2022 was inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
