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

While it's definitely not Pesci's finest film, it's both hilarious and occasionally heartwarming yet slightly low-budget. Despite it's small flaws, this film is a highly underrated masterpiece.

Joe Pesci plays a slumlord who is forced by court order to live in one of his own tenements. You'll never guess what happens.... He bonds with its nutty, stereotypical minority inhabitants. Wow, who'd thought that would happen! The biggest question this film raises is: Why on earth could have possibility possessed Oscar-winner Joe Pesci to follow-up "Goodfellas" with this awful film. Simply by looking at the dismal final project it is safe to that script wasn't any good. Did they expect director Rod Daniel to save it? If they did, they were terribly mistaken. The only compliment one can pay this film is to say that Ruben Blades didn't disgrace himself, which is more than could be said of Pesci, who gives a shrill, one-note performance. Pesci can provide effective comic relief in serious films, but, "My Cousin Vinny" notwithstanding, he isn't very funny in comedies.

I always had a morbid curiosity in seeing this critically panned movie. The premise isn't bad on the very surface of it: a slumlord is made to live in his tenement and bring it up to code or go to jail.

Somewhere between the premise being imagined and the script being written, everything falls apart. Insensitivity isn't a problem, but overt racism is. With a few rewrites, this could have been a halfway decent vehicle; instead, it shows white people as money grubbers and the ghetto as a place where only minorities live. Having grown up in New York City, I don't deny the demographics on display do exist, but white people are poor and live in crappy neighborhoods too. And naturally, what starts out with people at odds with one another ends in a paint-by-numbers hug-and-learn finale.

Of course, there's always winning lines like "I wanna take you to lunch. Forget the lunch, let's just hump!" to remember this classic by. Ugh.

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.

Joe Pesci plays a slumlord who is forced by a judge to live in one of his apartments untill he brings them up to code. Joe Pesci is hilarious. You will laugh the entire hour and a half. This movie is extremely funny and a great comedy performance by Joe Pesci.

Pesci being silly and greedy, pretty much a waste of film.

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.

Not very funny, despite the efforts of Joe Pesci. There's way too many films varying on this theme. Not a lot of them are any good.
