Editorial Reviews

John and Alice live in small-town America married, very much in love, and broke. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn't long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes. John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dreams of wealth.

My wife and I are a pair of aging boomers, but we loved The Brass Teapot. Full disclosure: It is probably aimed at 20 and 30 somethings, but we were taken by the charm of the story and the authentic renderings by Juno Temple and Michael Angarro -- guess we are young at heart after all. That said, the film deals with some pretty deep philosophical material, yet never seemed to take itself too seriously. Saw it over a week ago, and it is still a rich source of conversation around our house. Lots of fascinating back story to analyze -- can't wait for the sequel! This movie will become a cult classic for a generation. Wonderful film!

Judging by the trailers of The Brass Teapot, I didn't expect much from the movie, and it seemed like another cliché and Hollywood version of funny; however after watching it today, I have to admit it has its moments, and it can satisfy different audiences. If you just want to watch something fun and easy-to-digest and you enjoy simple jokes and humors, this movie delivers that with adequate acting and appealing story. If you need something deeper from the movies you watch, you still are going to find some hidden meanings behind simple humor and sarcasms, but you have to look harder. All and all, it is worth one time watching.

The 411:

I had no expectations about this movie and since getting Amazon Fire TV with Prime I thought I would give it a chance and if it sucked change it. It didn't suck!

Alice and John are a young couple who are NOT living the good life. They struggle, Alice can't find work. John is not good at his job. They are behind on rent and get harassed by their annoying landlord, a guy they both went to school with.

While out for a drive they are involved in a car accident. Somehow they both walk away and while John discusses the accident with the law enforcement, Alice takes off to check out a brass tea pot she spotted from across the street.

For some reason Alice needs this pot so badly she steals it. One day she finds out the power of the pot and this is where the movie gets good.

The movie takes the direction of personal morals! How far will they go? What will they do next? How will they handle the repercussions?

It was truly a great movie; funny, dramatic and smart. Juno Temple has become one of my favorite actresses. Michael Argarano was likeable and sweet as John. I was also thrilled to see one of my favorite Gilmore Girls, Alexis Bledel who plays Alice's very beautiful, rich friend.

Great movie that may not be on your radar. I never heard of it until it was on Amazon Prime and I am happy to pass it on.

How far will we go for money? Pretty far, as this little morality tale shows. A penniless young couple finds a teapot that dispenses cash, the more pain the two subject themselves to. As might be expected, events tumble out of control before long, but not until we see just how much money corrupts. The root of all evil? Indeed.

Fairly outlandish story on the surface, but it poses the question of what would you do in the face of great temptation. If the situation is complicated by need (as well as greed) and it seems as if no one will be hurt by your participation, at what point do you recognize your actions have crossed over that line, having arrived there by small degrees? One might reasonably apply the same questions to addiction, gambling, cheating on a loved one, etc. The movie's storyline initially feels like a lark, but yields much more food for thought upon reflection.

What a strange movie the Brass Teapot is! It's about a girl (Juno Temple) who stumbles upon a mysterious lady at an antique shop, and after a brief conversation Juno decides to steal the teapot. She doesn't know it at the time, but when she comes home and starts messing around with it, she eventually realizes it has the ability to create money whenever she feels pain. Any kind of pain apparently- a small pinch to the arm, a hard punch against the side of the face, or emotional pain.

I was totally anticipating that Juno would sneak smack her boyfriend across the face in surprising fashion the moment he opens the front door as he's coming home from work since he can't initially find Juno anywhere (the boyfriend played by Michael Angarano who I mistook for the guy from the OC, Benjamin McKenzie).

Maybe it's just me but Juno and her boyfriend look way younger than they really are. Almost like 15 year old kids. And yet, they're living together and functioning as a normal couple with typical relationship and work/money problems. It seemed a bit awkward to me but who knows, perhaps I'm just growing into an old prune.

Anyway, as you can guess, Juno and her boyfriend basically hurt themselves the entire movie as a way to keep pumping out more money. They even make a decision they're going to stop when they reach 1 million dollars but it doesn't work. They give into greediness and continue making money appear anyway. There's also a Chinese guy who's aware of the teapot's magic and plays a part.
