Small Apartments 2013 R CC

To add to his chaos, he is surrounded by eccentric neighbors: the stoner (Johnny Knoxville) and girlfriend (Rebel Wilson), the wanna-be stripper (Juno Temple) and the artist (James Caan).

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 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 *****.

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.

The supporting cast was by far made up of actors and actresses much better known and certainly more experienced than the lead. The movie turned out to be something entirely different from what the trailer implied, which is often the case; however, I didn't expect a comedy/drama, or is that "dramedy" these days, to be so steeped in people's misery. It reminded me of an old "Hudson and Landry" line: "I couldn't live like that."

In the end, the movie turned out to be a morality story, an allegory, if you will, about the what is valuable in life, and how little time we have to find it and to live it. I suppose if this were introduced early in the story, before the audience had to witness all the misery of the characters, then there wouldn't have been much reason for the movie. However redeeming the moral may have been, I eventually thought that it was too little too late.

Very strange movie but it really kept my attention. Odd little story about a really run down "hotel" where some bizarre characters live. I don't want to give too much away but it involves an old painter, a pot-head convenience store clerk, a young girl trying to get away, a bald heavy, pale man-child in his tighty whities and a dead landlord. Did I mention the drunken fire inspector? the acting is superb, the cast is amazingly strong. The man in his underwear matt Lucas is scary at times, just look at him! The cast for this small indie film....WOW....Billy Crystal, James Caan, Johnny Knoxville (wonderful), James Marsden, Dolph Lundgren and more surprises, too.

Pretty dark for me, but it all came together in the fable-like, last 30 minutes. Acting was good, but this emotionally removed, surrealistic style is really hard to pull off. Billy Crystal made this movie, his character full of subtle strength, pathos and struggle. no one would be nominated for acting awards in a movie like this, but I think he deserved one.

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!

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.
