Audience Reviews for The Super

One of the most underrated comedies of all time. Joe Pesci is hilarious and the film is loaded with one liners.

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.

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.
