13 December 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

One of those B-movies that flooded drive-ins when I was a kid. This one's about an apartment building where the manager (Milton Berle) only rents to singles. It plays like a trashy soap opera, with the characters involved in different story lines. John Saxon is always nice to look at, however.
