Storyline

Louie is a New York slum landlord who is given 120 days to repair one of his apartment blocks. The problem for Louie is that he must live in the rundown block until the repairs are complete. Louie's father is the real boss, and he has no intention of paying for the repairs. This leaves Louie to live in the squalor his tenants endure all year round. Written by Rob Hartill

Goofs

When Louie first enters his slum apartment 5C there is a shiny metal light fixture hanging up in the area where the ceiling is leaking onto a puddle on the floor. He closes the front door, walks into the bathroom and the light fixture is still there. But in the next shot the fixture is now inexplicably lying on the floor in the water puddle. This is never explained. See more »

Quotes

Louie Kritski: [Louie appears, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and pump sneakers] If you think I look stupid, just say so, Marlon.
Marlon: I don't think you look stupid.
Louie Kritski: Then what are you looking at? The jacket? The hood? What?
Marlon: It screams. You know what it says? It says, "Look at me! I'm wearing shit that nobody else in this neighborhood would wear. So come and stick me with a sharp object of your preference and then steal that hide-away wallet I got velcroed to my leg".
Louie Kritski: You could tell?
Marlon: No, it doesn't show. But that's ...

Pretty lame
31 December 2002 | by (Greenville, NY) – See all my reviews

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.
