In terms of living the American Dream, Alex and Nancy have it pretty good. They're a young, vibrant couple in New York City with bright futures ahead of them. But one thing is missing: a home of their own. But their new home comes with one feature they didn't expect: an upstairs rent-controlled tenant, Mrs. Connelly, who isn't quite as easy going or frail as Alex and Nancy originally anticipated. As their blissful life begins to seriously fray around the edges, their dream home rapidly turns into a nightmare. It's then that they start to wonder: if they can't move Mrs. Connelly out.

Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller are so well casted in this films of the heartaches and devastation that some young couples endure with interesting neighbors, unforeseen structural issues and the like with a first home purchase.

Charming movie produced & directed by Danny DeVito which is kinda like the "War of the Roses" except it the war of the tenants.
A young couple get duped into purchasing a duplex only to discover they have a rent controlled tenant on the 2nd floor.
I must say, if I was in that rent controlled apartment for 89 dollars a month, you'd have a hard time evicting me also. Filmed in the NY area, this spoof of a comedy is a lighthearted look at property ownership in a city where owning property can cost you much. And apparently is does.
