Small Apartments 2012

     Franklin Franklin lives in a seedy and run down apartment complex.  He dreams of moving to Switzerland and he blows his alphorn to bring forth these memories.  This does not please the other tenants plus they complain about the smell of his apartment every time he opens the door.  The smell comes from the dead landlord on the floor?  He also goes to the mailboxes every day wearing only a wig and white underwear.  The other tenants don’t have much going for them either, the pothead next door, the nosy one on the other side, oddball mother and daughter across the courtyard.
     This movie is a strange and wild ride from the beginning to the end.  Sometimes can be dark and horrifying but a lot of times funny.  Filmed in only 20 days!  3* (This movie is OK)

96 min, Comedy directed by Jonas Akerlund with Matt Lucas, James Caan, Johnny Knoxville, Juno Temple, James Marsden, Dolph Lundgren, Rebel Wilson, Billy Crystal, Rosie Perez.

Note:  Blockbuster 2 ½*, imdb 5.9 out of 10, 14% critic 38% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
