After returning from a bit of a hiatus, the Cinema Slob returns to find his apartment crawling with pests (voiced by fellow Agony Booth reviewers Joey Tedesco and Mr. Mendo)! He bugs out and reviews Joe’s Apartment, the first movie from MTV Films. Does this creepy crawly comedy still have wings? Or does it deserve to be squashed?

      I hadn’t seen this movie in like 13 years until the review. It’s really a damn entertaining flick.

  • Thomas Stockel

    I remember when Joe’s Apartment was a short on Mtv, I think it was part of their Liquid Television show. Of all the Liquid Television shorts, Joe’s Apartment would have been the last one I would have expected to have been made into a movie. 🙂

      I still don’t know why they didn’t ever make a Psycho-Gram movie.

      • Thomas Stockel

        I don’t recall that one.

        • The_Stig

          It was the one with all those postcards and that guy does these crazy bits that always start out with “Dear mum….”

          *wistful sigh* Oh for the days when MTV was actually cool.

  • I unapologetically love this movie.

    • Zachary LaVoy

      It’s actually really good. When I was writing the script for this episode I literally couldn’t think of any way to write jokes, so I just did the roach insults, haha.

  • The_Stig

    I enjoyed the MTV shorts. The movie, not so much.

  • Cnthomas

    I’ve been looking for this movie for years, I completely forgot what it was called and just called it “that movie with the funny roaches”. Can’t thank you enough, I was convinced that I’d dreamt it.

  • Heh, this movie actually looks a bit funny!

    • Also, the songs are freaking catchy, how did I not see this as a kid?

  • Sofie Liv

    Guess you didn’t get my bits I thought i send over face-book.. sorry I should have checked up about that.

    Great review though. I actually vaguely remembering watching this movie in tely many many years ago.

    • Zachary LaVoy

      Sorry I didn’t see anything Sofie. I’ll make it up to you by having you cameo in some other video. Just not sure what or when.

      • Sofie Liv

        it’s all-right, we are all good friends, maybe I was the one whom didn’t send it probably.

        Back to the movie.. man it’s odd, I remember watching it as part of a double feature in tely, where the other movie was about a man whom had a cryocenig frozen head and the ending climax were about a lot of those frozen heads on a facility.

        It was a comedy not a horror, and that’s about all I remember. Any-one have any idea what that was? that and this I only saw that ones, I remembered this one the best, but only very vaguely. I think i’m going to check it out again. This is fun.

          Sofie you should make a cameo-filled Teen Titans cartoon recap. I love the episodes with Blackfire, Trigon, Terra and some of the silly villains. Since Linkara is looking at the comics, having a huge video on the cartoon would be awesome. Too bad you couldn’t get Puffy Ami Yumi to be for a cameo but a man can wish can’t he?

          Teen Titans, JLU, Batman: Brave and the Bold…I know you love all three series for different reasons.
