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 »

THIS LIKES LIKE A GOOD ROOM.

If you like " my cousin vinny" than this is a must see. In this movie , they show a situation that is normal for some parts of the cities in the world. A "rich" guy ( home block owner) in his own ' falling apart' building, this gifs a lot off humorisch situations and after all the super will turn out to be a great guy even though his father does not agree with him. He will find a great place to park his car and will notice that the alarm works well. A guarantee for a fun evening in front of the tv. Good comedy.
