Top 5 Sensational Home Improvement Movies and TV Shows

I don’t know about you, but when I’m in the midst of a home improvement project, I’m particularly attuned to anything on television or in the theaters that spotlights aspects of remodeling, repairs or home improvement. I stop what I’m doing and delight in the home improvement action on the silver screen. I laugh at the tools falling, the foundation shaking, and whatever else the writers have in store for us about one of America’s favorite pastimes.

Come on: What home improvement or remodeling junkie doesn’t seize up with joy when watching The Money Pit for the tenth time? Roll with laughter at yet another episode of Tim Allen and Home Improvement? Or, sober up quick when an awesome home is featured on the big screen? Do you remember Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson in their blockbuster movie, Something’s Got to Give? Remember that Hampton’s Beach House? I sure do.
