Product Overview

Ready, set - Joe! Joe Pesci (1990 Oscar -winning Best Supporting Actor for GoodFellas) energizes two laugh-getters with his mega-watt comedy talents. In The Super (Side A), you see a squalid apartment house, but slumlord Louie Kritski (Pesci) sees a gold mine. The less he does to improve the building, the more he stands to clear when the rents come due. But that's before a judge orders Louie to live in his own rundown property and shape it up...or ship out to jail. Next, Harvard classmates find it takes more than schooling to make the grade in With Honors (Side B). Pesci plays Simon Wilder, a feisty drifter who insinuates himself into the lives of four students (including Brendan Fraser and Patrick Dempsey). If you want a degree, go to Harvard. If you want an education, go see Simon Wilder!

Review [Super] One would suppose that the actual sentencing of slumlords, which calls for them to live in the broken-down buildings they have been convicted for failing to repair, would make a decent urban feel-good movie subject. The creators of The Super, however, couldn't manage it. Despite the casting of Joe Pesci in the lead role, the script just gets too far-fetched to be believable (the hero's father won't let him make repairs) and too contrived to make the in-character racial slurs excusable. The disc has an acceptable color transfer and a decently boisterous stereo surround soundtrack.

Review [Honors] With Honors is a perfect example of one of those cloying, "feel good" motion pictures that Hollywood churns out without consideration of that portion of the audience which would prefer to be gently drawn into the movie rather than subjected to cheap and obvious manipulation. Does this mean that the film is unwatchable? Certainly not, but it's an indication that With Honors is far worse than it could -- and should -- have been...With Honors contains a few amusing sequences. In fact, there's a period of about ten minutes (beginning with the arrival of the new roommate) when the motion picture starts to click, offering a period of easygoing entertainment. That stops when the overt manipulation begins.

Review [Super] Pesci's performance is entertaining; he's squat, energetic, utterly confident, unselfconscious and essentially warm-hearted. He deserves a better screenplay than this one, by Sam Simon, which throws in little lessons in humanity almost according to a formula...What's finally depressing about "The Super" is that it doesn't have the nerve to be any one thing. It wants to be crude and rude, but it ends with sentiment. It wants to be about whites and blacks, but is incurious about the lives of its black characters. It wants to be about slumlords and their victims, but goes all mushy.
