Movie Info

A man unaccustomed to telling the truth learns to at least describe it. Larry (Jason Schwartzman) is an unqualified, unemployable, inebriated prankster who rides a tide of booze onto the glorious shores of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube. Taking a part-time job vacuuming and washing windshields, Larry finds himself mixed up with hostile co-workers and unsatisfied customers, while also finding himself smitten with his lovely boss, Lupe Torrez (Eleanore Pienta). Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for man's best friend (his dog Arrow), and do his grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud? (C) Official Facebook

News & Interviews for 7 Chinese Brothers

Critic Reviews for 7 Chinese Brothers

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (16)

The film never allows the audience to truly get to know any of the characters in Larry's world, a world in which their uniform shirts emblazoned with company logos and their first names serve as reminders of their lot in life.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

By widening his soulful puppy eyes - matched only, quite eerily, by those of his French bulldog in real life, Arrow - Schwartzman successfully dares audiences to care.

Top Critic

Schwartzman ... gives Larry enough humanity and a modicum of personal growth that you keep coming back for more.

Arizona Republic
Top Critic

Writer-director Bob Byington showed potential as a social satirist with his provocative 2008 indie RSO (Registered Sex Offender), but this slacker comedy lacks any such venom.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

7 Chinese Brothers is so slight it risks evaporating on contact.

September 2, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

The sharpest moments cast mundane struggles in a nearly spiritual light.
