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 »

Enjoyable Fun
23 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Although not Joe Pesci's best film, it had enough funny moments in it for me to watch it again. Joe Pesci was at his crazy comic best. Vincent Gardenia's expressions and comedic timing helped make this an enjoyable film. Mr. Gardenia's last film. Too bad, he & Pesci would have been a good team in other future projects.
