The first House Party movie premiered in 1990. It focuses on a group of teenagers planning a party at home while their parents are on vacation, only to have the craziest night of their lives unfold. It was iconic at the time –– and it still is now. The cult success of the first film resulted in several sequels, including a remake set to release on HBO Max in 2022.
The legacy of the original film has lasted more than across decades, but fans will never forget that first night over that Play's house. Where exactly is the cast of House Party now? Here’s what everyone is doing today more than 30 years later.
