Reviews

Chris O'Dowd and Charlie Hunnam star as two brothers trying to stop an indiscreet home video from spreading across the internet in this anarchic independent comedy from director Jordan Roberts. After years of humiliation at the hands of his older brother Bruce (O'Dowd)'s video camera, aspiring writer Frankie (Hunnam) has sought refuge by isolating himself from his family. But after being forced to return home for his brother's post-rehab party, Frankie's anxiety levels reach new heights when he discovers that his less than successful one-night stand with Lassie (Lizzy Caplan), has been secretly filmed by Bruce. With the tape subsequently leaked onto an internet porn site, Frankie and Bruce set out on a madcap chase to take it down, aided in part by post-op transsexual Phyllis (Ron Perlman).

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Sat alone with a laptop in his silver Winnebago in the desert of Death Valley outside Los Angeles – 29-year old Frank Bartlett (Charlie Hunnam) is avoiding his mother’s incessant phonecalls while trying to write a novel on revenge. He basically wants to kill his entire family – or if that’s not possible – then just his older brother Bruce will suffice (Chris O’Dowd).

Bruce - whom his mother Karen affectionately calls a ‘little s***’ - has humiliated and tortured Frankie on film more times than Miss Dharma D-Cup has revealed her wonder chest. But even though the Bartletts are reduced to using mopeds because Bruce sold the car for drugs (“apparently the insurance company doesn’t consider it theft if its family…”) – at least he’s out of rehab and 90 days sober. So there is that.

But while in celeb clean-up Bruce has befriended a whacko Hollywood Director called Jack (Chris Noth) who owns a pig and dates a reformed porn-star (mentioned above) who now wants to commune with God’s angels and not men’s underpants. So perhaps Bruce’s teeny-weeny indiscretion of putting Frankie’s Wedding Disaster video (where his wife sleeps with the best man) up on the Internet for 18 million people to see is all behind him. Well, sort of…

Because on his return home to Bruce’s coming-out-of-rehab party – crashing into Frankie and his beat-up car is the literally edible Lassie on her bicycle wearing a bra made of sweets (and little else). Lassie was going to surprise her boyfriend with her kinky outfit beneath a duffle coat – only he surprised her by being in the arms of someone else. So Lassie is drunk and on a bicycle in Los Angeles and collapses in front of Frankie with a bra made of sweets. What is a nice boy like Frankie to do?

Format: DVD
I am confused about the hype and raves for this film. It is a wanna-be quirky independent film using trite jokes and unreal situations in a world that doesn't require a release form. We are told that Bruce has spent his life torturing and filming his brother Frankie from the film blurb. We get to see one quick episode, hear about a second one, that really had nothing to do with Bruce and the movie is about a third one that again, Bruce (Chris O'Dowd) just happens to film.

The whole set up and building of characters was done in a very poor fashion. The get together of Frankie(Charlie Hunnam) and Lassie (Lizzy Caplan) was slightly humorous, but there was no good follow up. Bruce was extremely unlikeable. Frankie only slightly less so. The characters overall are meh, even the over the top Ron Pearlman..."call me Phyllis now" tried so hard to be funny, that it wasn't.

This is a sex comedy that lacks the crudeness of successful sex comedies, and lacks the cleverness of a good indie. It is a hybrid that doesn't reproduce. Some may find it amusing, I don't recommend it, even as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity.

Frankly, this film is so good on many levels. Firstly, you have the great Ron Perlman, totally out of character as the cigar chomping Phyllis, which in itself was a treat. Shame he didn't have more of a role in it, but what he did do was, as always, perfect. Chris O' Dowd was wonderful as the shameless and manipulative brother, and Charlie Hannan played the put-upon brother really well. I would recommend this film as a piece of future cult viewing, but you have to watch it several times in order to appreciate the various funny little vignettes and sub plots going on. For anyone who enjoyed Napolean Dynamite, this film is a must!

Great cast. Charlie Hunnam is really good in this, his character is constantly distraught by his crazy family mostly brother. Love Ron Pearlman in this too.
