The Handyguys Review “Home Movies”

Home movies? Yes, movies about your home. As we wind down what has been a great first year for The Handyguys Podcast we decided we would take a break from working on our Honey Do List and watch a couple of movies. Listen to the podcast for our complete review and comments.

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House

First up is Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House. This is an older movie. One of Handyguy Brian’s favorites. It follows Cary Grant, as Mr. Blandings, in his quest to get out of his small Manhattan apartment and into his dream house. Some of the funny aspects are because of what things cost in the 40s versus today, it adds a dimension to the film that didn’t exist when it was first released.

Money Pit

The second movie we discuss is Money Pit with Tom Hanks and Shelly Long. This movie contains a similar plot to Mr. Blandings. A Young couple moves to the country and buy a house without careful evaluation and inspection. If its too good to be true then it probably is… This movie follows the young couple in their quest to fix up the old house, and their relationship. The crazy antics of Hanks and the contractors make this a pretty funny movie.
