If you think I look stupid, just say so, Marlon.
I don't think you look stupid.

This is another lame comedy from Joe Pesci. In this one he plays a heartless slum lord who gets a citiation for his slums being "unsuitable", and as punishment he must live in one of his own slums until he fixes all of them. A few funny lines and slapstick moments in there, but overall its a pretty lame comedy. It also tries to take a turn into drama near the end but it doesnt really work. If you want to see Pesci in a funny, enjoyable comedy, see "My Cousin Vinny"(1992). 4.9 out of 10 sounds about right.
