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.

The "Brass Teapot" was an entertaining, funny, witty movie. The acting was
pretty good. The script was good, and to some degree kept you guessing what
was going to happen next. Lastly, this movie was pretty damn funny at times.
Consistently funny is a tall order for any movie, and by that I was impressed.
While this isn't the best movie out there, I think it's worth watching, and had me
rolling at times. If you want to just relax and be entertained for two hours, I
recommend this film. 4 Stars for the Brass Teapot.

I really liked this film a lot. Its a fun dark comedy/love story with some neat dark fairy tale and mythology themes. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is that the way in which they get the magical brass teapot is really weak. I can't help but think the writers couldn't have done it better. Pretty lame. Otherwise, I really love this little film.

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.
