Customer Reviews

The humor is excellent and the story line is great.

It will make you happy, sad, grossed out but I think it is definitely worth the watch.

Peter Stormore has more screen-time as a dead body than he does alive.

We watched the film last year at a screening in Austin Texas. The film has some great performances especially Bill Crystal, Matt Lucas, James Caan as well as memorable performances by Rebel Wilson Dolph and perhaps the best performance by Johnny Knoxville in his entire career. But the star is the story, which is bittersweet but really really funny. May be a classic, its stays with me unlike most films.

In a world of formatted films, sequel, slasher pix this is an original. The book was great and the story is much bigger than the lives of the inhabitants of their small apartments. Hope you like the show. respectfully submitted

I have this movie on my wishlist but haven't purchased it yet. I rented it from the Redbox, didn't really expect much but what a movie! I haven't felt so much emotion (happy, sad, angry, etc.) while watching a movie in ages! This is a haunting type of inspirationally, twisted, hilariousness...it's really hard to describe. But seriously...the best movie I've seen since Harold and Maude!

I enjoy strange movies. This is a strange movie. Lots of chubby people in their underwear and a man named Franklin Franklin.

I thought there was too much narration and not enough of Rebel Wilson and some of the scenes did not ring that true or make much sense. But at the end of it all you're cheering for people that aren't that great of people and that means that somewhere in the course of the film I was convinced to care about them and that's what happened here.

It is weird though and sort of heartbreaking but Crystal is really the focus and it's about him and Franklin Franklin is just the reason that Crystal comes around.

And Johnny Knoxville is very good as a stoner and his final scene is heartbreaking like I said. The music is very good, though it gets a little melodramatic at the end but the first song is catchy.

All in all five stars *****.

But when you're confronted with a movie of such raw emotion, you don't worry about your track record or whether you took your insulin that day. You just LIVE, DAMMNIT!!

Every performance is a standalone treat, every line of the script a dance on the razor's edge of sanity! This is the film David O. Sleznick did not have the courage to make! (no relation to David O. Selznick BTW).

I laughed too many times during this film. I also cried once when a portly man came down my row and stepped on my foot with a full 44 oz. Lime Coke Zero in his hands and a look of hubris on his lips. I'm not ashamed to say that gentleman had a strong dose of my evil eye that evening. And I make NO apologies for that!

I don't mean to compare down but I would rather watch this film in a prison cell with a healthy population of Dallas Cowboys fans than have to watch the interminable "Silver Linings Playbook" in a floating island in the sky while my feet were alternately being rubbed by Gore Vidal and Dr. Jonathan Miller. That's how much better Small Apartments is! I shan't restate it!

The number of big name stars in this movie is surprising. Just because it was small doesn't mean the cast did not all give first rate performances. The humor is excellent and the story line is great.
