This movie is quirky and entertaining. It is one of my favorite movies. From the very beginning it captivates you with its charm and then slowly grows darker with a comic telling. Its one of the movies that I watch overe and over. This is real hidden gem.

I see 'The Brass Teapot' as more of a guilty pleasure film. My main problems have to do with most of the characters being too young to play characters based on those in the short story; (which this film is based on) also, this film has way too much awkward humor for it to be truly comedy gold despite the premise of a short story turning into violent slapstick comedy.

I-Loved-this-film! Im a big fan of Juno Temple's acting and she definitely did not disappoint. Not sure why the critics gave this such a low score...they must be bat shit because it was soooo well executed. If you watch this movie...and love it, then I definitely recommend the following titles to watch as well:
-Cheap Thrills
-13 Sins

Based on a comic book series, The Brass Teapot is a quirky modern fairy tale. When a financially desperate young married couple comes across a magical brass teapot that rewards the owner with riches in exchange for the infliction of pain, they find themselves crossing lines that they never though they would in order to keep the money following. Juno Temple and Michael Angarano deliver pretty good performances and have a nice chemistry together. However, the supporting characters aren't developed very well and neither is the plot. There are also some tonal issues, as the sex and violence brings some darkness to the film, but not enough to be a black comedy. Still, a lot of the humor works and overall the morality tale is effectively told. The Brass Teapot, while it has its problems, is an entertaining film with a unique take on the corrupting influence of money.

Hilarious despite all the stupidity.

A total let down. Never keeps a certain tone, and never lived up to its potential to be a truly disturbing, thought provoking movie.

A simple yet completely engaging movie that has the feel of a modern dark fairytale. Excellent cinematography, phenomenal acting, and an all too relatable lesson on just how far greed can take us past what we like to believe are our boundaries. Leaves you with a sense of wonder and maybe even hope.

Although the plot is pretty basic, the context it is put in is an interesting idea and fun to watch. It strongly reminds of the chinese fable culture, and all the kind of metaphors and morals to it. A nice movie to watch for entertainment purposes. Better than most comedies coming from Hollywood nowadays.

Well, I liked it. It was an interesting morality tale focused on greed, told in the form of a twisted fairy tale.

Absolutely magical storytelling! A gem of a film with great acting and quirky comedic touches. The song at the end *Lovely, Dark, and Warm* is poignant too!

the new "monkeys claw", a modern day story about greed and redemption, and humanities natural servitude to possessions and the need to always push just a little bit father towards the edge.
