Most people have missed the point of this movie. If you're not from Brooklyn, NY and have never been to Coney Island then you'll never get it!. Noone has mentioned Donald Trump's cameo!. The writers have taken a difficult social problem and created a comedy, forced as it is at times. The acting is superb. How many communities have been destroyed by hi-rise condos? The split between the rich and poor was portrayed in a palatable comedy. Not every movie has to be an action movie with tcchie special effects!!!
