I'd forgotten that this year is the 20th anniversary of the film, House Party. This article from AOL's Black Voices "BV on Movies" blog reminded me. There was an anniversary party at the Tribeca All Access kickoff event, part of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
Released in 1990 by New Line Cinema, House Party starred the rap duo Kid 'N Play having a (what else) house party when Kid's dad (played by the much-missed comic, Robin Harris) is away. The film also starred Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell, among others. There would be two theatrical sequels and one straight-to-video movie.
