Customer Reviews

This movie had a good story and good acting.
Ernie
This film is too serious to be fun for just being bizarre and wacky, too surreal to be serious and has too many well known actors to be written off entirely.
Ron Baker
The rest of the movie just struck me being kind of depressing and pointless--although I will admit that I've never seen anything else exactly like it.

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

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.

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 *****.

I had high expectations for this film due to the cast which is stacked with some really great talent however even Billy Crystal couldn't make this worth watching. I love watching horrible films but even playing video games on my iPhone couldn't distract me from how horrible this film was. Trust me do yourself a favor ignore it as it deserves to be ignored

This was a funny, quirky movie! Not one that you would immediately go out to see but I liked it! I liked James Caan and Billy Crystal...their performances put this movie into the four star bracket for me.

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!

It will make you happy, sad, grossed out but I think it is definitely worth the watch. Very touching. Franklin Franklin is an odd man but you will like him and you will cheer him on.

This movie may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is one of my favorites. Hilarious dry humor from Billy Crystal, and great acting throughout. I particularly enjoyed the score. Very touching, troubling, sad stories about several people in a run down apartment complex with a surprising happy ending, for one character anyway.
