If news broke today that Tori Spelling, Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, Genevieve Bujold, Josh Hamilton, and Parker Posey were going to star in a movie together, it probably wouldn't be something anyone would get excited about, or yearn to see. It also wouldn't seem believable that they would come together for a darkly comedic story rife with word play ... if it didn't already happen in 1997.
A strange anomaly in the cinematic world, The House of Yes was the film that made the best of everyone -- the rare example that some chastised stars could offer more than the usual easily forgotten fare. Spelling shrugged off her Donna Martin image to play the girl who grew up on pancakes, and Prinze Jr. even managed a difficult balance of innocent newbie and nuanced man with a plan.
While I fell in love with the film from moment one, it was the below scene that stole my heart -- rolling and carefully plotted banter that makes words into a dance. Kick back with a glass of Liebfraumilch and enjoy!
Trivia: MacLeod got the name of the play/film from bathroom stall graffiti.
