Movie Info

Franklin Franklin plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbors is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busybody who doesn't miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin's real problem. His real problem is that his landlord is dead, laid out on the linoleum of his kitchen, and Switzerland seems farther

A toxically quirky black comedy starring a morbidly obese albino who dreams of traveling to Switzerland.

Begins as a totally quirky novelty film with seemingly absurd, overdrawn and outrageous characters ... but ends up as an absolutely captivating, totally quirky novelty film - with heart and many surprises

The brazen, colourful nature of the characters is the strength of this black comedy from Jonas Åkerlund - and its topline cast. There's an additional, unexpected factor that does not hit us until the very end. It has a heart

Jonas Åkerlund's crass, cartoonish comedy about an oddball trying to dispose of his landlord's corpse.

Despite the film's distinctive look and the best efforts of the willing cast, this amusing, morbid and mildly misanthropic mélange always seems to be straining for effect.

Relentlessly quirky and strange, this pitch black comedy manages to combine its outrageous silliness with some surprising emotional resonance.

When Johnny Knoxville is your MVP, it's maybe time to go back to the drawing board.

Åkerlund seems distracted by all the inherent quirkiness of the personalities and uses it as a crutch.

The material is too thin to truly inspire, showing more skill as a map of madness, populated with greasy, grimy types who inhabit our world, yet refuse to abandon their own.

Audience Reviews for Small Apartments

Odd doesn't really cover it and peculiar seems like an understatement. The detail in the oddities/peculiarities found in Small Apartments is quite brilliant though. It's a simple concept, a concept that has been exaggerated perfectly in it's realisation. No good odd film is without an odd cast ensemble either, with Matt Lucas, Billy Crystal, Juno Temple, James Marsden, Rebel Wilson , Peter Stormare , Dolph Lundgren , James Caan , Rosie Perez , Johnny Knoxville and Amanda Plummer present, how could anyone resist right? The ridiculous story is matched only by the ridiculous characters. This won't be to everyone's liking and I do have minor issues with it but altogether it's really nice to see something original and plain silly for a change.
