Audience Reviews for The Super

Joe Pesci as a heartless greedy landlord who is forced to stay in one of his own slums. Typical contrived Hollywood junk in which the nasty rich man is taught life lessons by the noble poor folk. I'd like to force heartless greedy studio execs to sit through hours of this kind of crap...

Super Reviewer

This is a funny movie Joe Pesci as Louie Kritski just got his first apartment building from his father, a real slum lord. When the tenants take him to court the judge sentences him to live in his own building. What could be wrong with that? He finds out the hard way. Check out what happens to his car, it's just hilaious.

Alan Parks

Super greedy heartless Slumlord forced to live in one of his testaments sounds like a good idea, Joe Pesci sounds like a good idea, but it wasn't good. It never got going and was not that funny. I recommend avoiding this one.
