Mel Brooks is back in a comedy about hopeless people and a wealthy executive who is forced to live with them for thirty days on a bet. This is not vintage Brooks who made Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. The jokes are repetitious and the film waver between a serious film about homeless people and a silly comedy. A bright spot is a song and dance scene with Brooks and Leslie Ann Warren reminiscent of a 30s musical but it is not enough. Life Stinks ... stinks.
