Where did he do it? Not here, I hope.

It is given fact that some the greatest comedies of all time have come from the creative genius of film maker Mel Brooks. 'Blazing Saddles', 'Young Frankenstein', 'History of the World: Part 1' are just a couple of examples of this comedic genius and each is a true cinematic classic in their own right. That being said in 1991 Brooks asked the question 'What is funny about being pour and homeless?' and the answer turned out to be 'nothing.' After such a long string of hits the man behind 'Sheriff Bart' and 'Hedley Lamarr' dropped a bomb onto the cinematic landscape known as "Life Stinks" a film which unlike any of his prior efforts failed to garnish many laughs or connect with his numerous fans. It would seem that the only people who may have identified with the theme of the film unfortunately couldn't afford a ticket and it failed.

That last bit was a joke ....

Here is the plot:

A rich businessman makes a bet he can survive on the streets of a rough Los Angeles neighborhood for 30 days completely penniless. During his stay he discovers another side of life and falls in love with with a homeless woman. - Written by John Sacksteder

This One Is 100% Certified Cinematic Turkey!

Newscaster: ...the ceremony has erupted into pandemonium. As of yet, I'm not exactly sure what's happening...
Fumes: [snatching the mike] This is Fumes, reporting from downtown, and I'll tell you what's happenin'. The rich and famous are having a party in our neighborhood, and we fucked it up! Ha Ha!
Fumes: Back to you, Walter...
Newscaster: Is this going out live? Are we live? Oh, jeez...
