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).

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.

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

There is so much to recommend this film. I can't believe I never heard of Small Apartments until it popped up on Amazon Prime. The acting is phenomenal. The story is bazaar but completely riveting, and I will think about it for years to come. An absolute must-see!

This is a Five Star movie if I've ever seen one. Nothing detracts from the sheer perfection of Small Apartments.

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 *****.

Another Jonas Åkerlund movie. I have not seen Åkerlund's previous movie "Spun" so I can't compare the two. "Small Apartments" has a great cast, especially Matt Lucas and Billy Chrystal, but also amazingly enough "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville! Peter Stormare gets a special credit. The filming is nicely done, with overly saturated colors and funny editing. And the music, by Per Gessle from Roxette, fits the movie perfectly.
I've seen the movie three times, and the first I laughed hard at all the weirdness going on in it. The second time I smiled and felt a bit uncomfortable, and the third time I actually cried because it's so sad under the surface.
This is a really good indie flick which actually needs more attention than it has gotten. See it, love it.
Yes there is quite a lot of bad language in it, but as they say in "Forrest Gump," s*** happens. The bluray quality is as good as one can expect. As I said, lots of bright colors, but that was surely intended.

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.

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.

If you're a fan of the British TV show Little Britain then you will probably find it interesting to see Matt Lucas in this role. This movie is one of those little gems you sometimes find when searching for a movie. It's a little weird and quirky but it plays out really well. The odd and raw characters is one of the most interesting parts of this movie. Matt Lucas' character especially as the main character is really weird, especially as he is usually without pants on. I really love how they skim over an ongoing dilemma in the movie, which I don't really want to give away as a spoiler, but it's part of the description of the film anyhow. Basically the movie is about the dead landlord found in Matt Lucas' apartment, but also about the strange neighbors he has in a rundown apartment complex. But the body in his apartment is sort of washed over, which is part of the dark humor in this film. Overall, if you like independent films, and are also a fan of dark comedies with a side of mild drama then you will probably enjoy this film.
