Jerry O'Connell (TV's "Sliders," "Stand By Me") is fresh off the bus from Iowa and just trying to make it in New York, but he's got no job, no girl and, worst of all, no place to live. But life's about to change when he finds a home. It's a slummy, squalid, seedy little box of a place, but it's a pad Joe can call his own...or so he thinks. It seems that not all of the apartment's former tenants have evacuated. His roommates -- 50,000 dancing, singing, talking cockroaches. This creepy, funny musical film is based on the award-winning MTV live-action/animated short. Co-starring Megan Ward ("Party of Five," "Encino Man"), Jim Turner ("The Ref," "The Lost Boys"), rap group Salt-n-Pepa's Sandra Denton and Robert Vaughn ("The Towering Inferno," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.").

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Some viewers will still want to reach for the Raid.
Rotten: So much up-to- the-minute technology hasn't been used for so disastrous a product since the Hindenburg.
Rotten: Unfortunately, nothing that any of the humans contribute to Joe's Apartment is nearly as interesting as the musical numbers and comedy riffs of the cockroaches.
Rotten: John Payson's Joe's Apartment may well have been a funny MTV short, but stretched to feature length it's got to be the most putrid picture since The Garbage Pail Kids Movie nearly a decade ago.

Pathetically Pleasant... Truly Entertaining! Loved this movie and recommend it to anyone that enjoys mindless entertainment. Great surround sound and good effects. I now view bugs in a different light.
