Not long ago, a judge in California sentenced a slumlord to live in one of his tenements. It was a sensational case, which meant that, before the gavel fell, several scripts were already in development.
One of these was probably "The Super," a thrown-together comedy that makes only a cursory effort to explore this premise.
Joe Pesci stars as the unscrupulous, miserly owner of a ghetto apartment building sentenced to live there after he refuses to fix building-code violations. The arrogant landlord is determined to ride out his four-month sentence without fixing a single leaky faucet.
