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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Expected June 2, 2013
By Simon
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! March 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film February 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
An Interesting, quirky film about avarice and human nature. Not to heavy but I really enjoyed it :). I would deem it a dark comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars I had so much fun! February 23, 2014
By M
Format:Blu-ray
This story is so different. Although it is a fairly absurd fantasy, the movie tells it in a way where you never find yourself questioning it. The energy and humor never let up.

Micheal's character is incredibly relatable and quietly charismatic. I liked him in Black Irish and also remember him from his small role as young William in Almost Famous, which I must have seen 20 times. Juno Temple is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Here, she's is darkly fun and a total knock-out. Bobby Moynihan and Alia Shawkat appear here and there and effortlessly steal every scene they're in. The entire cast is a blast to watch.

The soundtrack is enjoyable, too. Most of it is by a group called The Amoeba People, who I like a lot. The most fun is when Timebomb by Beck plays. Know that if you watch this movie, you'll likely be downloading that one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasently Suprised February 13, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I had not heard about this movie before coming across it, and honestly almost did not give it a chance, but my wife thought it might be promising. We found it to be a great movie! It was funny and was a great dark comedy. I would recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars ENTHRALLING! February 9, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I watched The Brass Teapot expecting a comedy with a fantasy spin. However, I got so much more that will have you analyzing the story developments over and over again. While The Brass Teapot is quite funny in a delightful kind of way, at times it becomes a dark psychological drama. I couldn't help but put myself into the situation and imagine how much better I could have handled it -- and that is the very trap that ensnared souls into the lowest levels of their own corruption and evil over centuries.

If you watch The Brass Teapot, expect the unexpected and definitely prepare to be amused, horrified, baffled and thoroughly intellectually and emotionally engaged from the very first scene.

Very, very highly recommended.
