[font=Century Gothic]In "The Tenants", it is 1972 when Harry Lesser(Dylan McDermott) is writing his third novel in a tenement in Brooklyn where he is the sole remaining tenant, hoping to regain the form of his successful first novel, when he hears another typewriter down the hall. There, he discovers Willie Spearmint(Snoop Dogg) writing a book of his own. The two become friends and Willie asks Harry to read his manuscript and tell him what he thinks.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"The Tenants" nails the solitary obsessiveness of writers perfectly but in other areas the movie is less than a success, especially in missing a prime opportunity to explore race relations. Willie is by far the more interesting character, with experiences that are only hinted at, whereas Lesser is the more polished writer. In short, what could have made for an intriguing movie falls dramatically flat, and a bland Dylan McDermott does not help.[/font]

very good thriller, Snoop Digg shines alongside Rose Byrne and Dylan McDermott. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

Interesting 70s piece with two writers as the main characters. Not only did it make me daydream again about being Lorraine Hansberry in a flat on the upper West side in the 1950s, but it actually made me think that Snoop Dog might really be serious about his acting career...

Now this is a movie that tries to be artistic but fails to be even a close one. Simply the movie is about two writers and how they become enemies of eachother. The movie is really boring and if you are not fully awake do not watch it because you will fell sleep.

I don't even know how to classify this movie. I hated it!!!! It was horrible.

Dylan McDermott is living in this run down building, trying to finish his book. The landlord keeps trying to pay him to get him out so he can tear down the building. Then this squatter shows up, Snoop Dogg, & is also writing a book. They become friends in some kind of screwed up way. The acting is horrible, the story makes no sense. It was just bad bad bad!!!

Directed by Danny Green
Starring Dylan McDermott, Snoop Dogg, Rose Byrne, Seymour Cassel

Snoop Dogg is such a distinct character (even compared to all his gangsta rivals) that its rather hard to separate his celebrity rap stature from his roles in films. He?s got so much of that gangsta shit going on you?d always see Snoop the Rapper. In the movie he plays a wanna-be writer who finds himself sharing the same floor of an abandoned apartment with another writer played by McDermott. Or was it the other way around? They are both trying to finish a book and strike a tension-filled friendship built on compromise, like a bomb ready to explode. Surprisingly, the movie without excessing in other things is rich in character mainly because it is a good adaptation of Bernard Malamud?s novel. It doesn?t disguise itself or anything, it is strong, reckless and absorbing, and such a grabbing performance by McDermott.

Best Scene: Lesser tells Willie he loves his girl.
QUOTE: Byrne: ?One thing about loving a black man, there are times you feel black yourself.?

One of the worst movies of the year. I had utter hate for most of the characters in this film especially for Snoop Doggs character. What pretentious garbage.

Agonizingly slow at times, and a very inconsistent film. The heavy handed direction doesn't help. Certainly not a cheery film. Very negative and unappealing. Dylan McDermott does a decent job, but Snoop Dogg is irritating as hell.
