When a clumsy deadbeat accidentally kills his landlord, he must do everything in his power to hide the body, only to find the distractions of lust, the death of his beloved brother and a crew of misfit characters, force him on a journey where a fortune awaits him. Written by
The address on the envelope received by Franklin Franklin is 1700 Marlton Avenue, which does not exist in Los Angeles. The Marlton Building, filming location for the apartments, had an actual street address of 4041 S. Marlton Avenue, and was part of a mixed office/retail development. It has since been demolished.

When the flight attendant hands Dr, Mennox his drink, she bends down with the glass in her right hand. In the next shot she is seen handing him the drink with her left hand. Immediately following this, she is now seen to be holding a tray with Franklin's drink on it in her left hand. See more »
I don't use the word "film" often. I use it when something has moved into the art category and out of the commercial movie world.
Now, with that out of the way, I originally thought to rate this movie a 7.
"So why the bump to 9?" I hear you ask yourself... The reason is quite simple. Small Apartments has stayed with me since watching it.
The film is unnerving and will make most squirm while they watch it. However, like a bad relationship, you'll remember the experience long after you finished with it.
The best part is that Small Apartments is FUNNY. You don't need to be looking for a deeper meaning while watching it... it delivers that intravenously while you're laughing. Only later will you realize it's found its way into your system.
I would recommend this for anyone 18 or older that's looking for an entertaining work of art.
