The Fine Print
1 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The Kramdens' apartment is a mess. The plaster is falling. The plumbing is failing. Ralph gets no satisfaction from his landlord so he finds a part of his lease that shows a requirement that the landlord must maintain the building. So Ralph goes about paying for improvements, thinking the landlord is going to foot the bill. As is usually the case, things don't go quite so well.
