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 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 »

Quotes

Big Lou Kritski: Will you stop about the tenants? Remember, they used to live in huts. They used to eat people. You feel better now? Hey, come on, who gives a shit about a few whiny kookaboos?
Judge Smith: Therefore, I find Louis Kritski Jr. guilty.

THIS LIKES LIKE A GOOD ROOM.
9 November 1998 | by jantjuhSee all my reviews

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.
