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

When Louie shows up at his apartment building on the first night of his house arrest, he parks his red corvette in the street. The corvette is seen from the alley point-of-view to the left of a fence that covers half of the alley entrance (the corvette is visible through the non-fenced side of this alley on the left). That same night the corvette is stripped of all usable parts, including the wheels and left up on blocks. But days later when Louie follows Marlon into the alley toward the basketball courts, the corvette has inexplicably moved to where it is now seen BEHIND the aforementioned fence, i.e. twenty feet to the right from it's original position. It should still be visible through the fence opening on the left, not THROUGH the fenced side on the right. See more »
I prayed for you last night, Mr. Kristki. I prayed for you to get my commode fixed.
Get out of my way and leave me alone!
You don't want me to leave you alone.
Trust me, I do.
No, Satan wants me to leave you alone.
We BOTH want you to leave me alone. Ha ha. Hallelujah.

The joke is a bigoted slumlord forced to live in his own building. Joe Pecci is excellent as "The Super", who gets a real education from his tenants. His red Corvette is stripped the first night. He is constantly hustled by his neighbors. Scenes such as when he goes to the local grocery to buy wine, or when his elegant girlfriend visits his dumpy apartment, are classic comedy. Vincent Gardenia as Peci's overbearing father, is a role not unlike the one he played in "Fire Sale". "The Super" is sort of a cross between "Fire Sale" and Mel Brooks "Life Stinks". The movie definitely is re watchable, and most likely will seem even funnier on repeat viewings. Highly recommended, especially for those who appreciate dark comedy. - MERK
