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.").

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Audiences will want their security deposit back from Joe's Apartment, a lame comedy whose dancing cockroaches are more charming than the human characters.
