The Super (1991)

“It worked before you broke it! ” – Louie Kritski

Number of Times Seen – 1 (11 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A sum lord is sentence by a judge to live in one of his building for 30 days.

My Take on it – Horrendous film that doesn’t work on any level.

Joe Pesci is terrible here in the lead and doesn’t give us any reason to care about him at al.

The character arc is far too superficial and whenever get the impression that this is a redeemable character.

The story never manages to move forward and despite having a relatively short run time, things feel far too boring and repitiotious as things unfold.

The story fails to be believable in any way and that also makes it even harder to take anything that happens here from a more serious perspective.

The plot is filled with so many holes that one could drive Pesci’s sports car through any of them and no one would notice.

The supporting characters are all stereotypical and none really add anything new or innovate to this kind of story.

The jokes fall flat and never manage to help elevate this story into something more.

Vincent Gardenia is fine as Pesci’s father, but something seems completely off in the chemistry between the two of them along the way.

I’m really surprised that anyone actually believed that this film could work, especially Pesci himself.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Despite having a starring role in many films before this one, this is the first movie in Joe Pesci’s career where he received top billing. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
