Goofs

When John and Alice are in the library, Alice rips a page out of the "Magical Objects and Potions" book while John is distracted. He then begins to read about some dangers of the teapot on the lower right edge of the right-side page. Turning the page he cannot keep reading because the next page had been removed. In reality, the continuation would have been on the upper-left back side of the page he turned, which was clearly full of text. See more »

lazy Sunday afternoon
7 April 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

My first review on IMDb. I wanted to write this, because the current reviews, i felt, were too positive. NOT because this is a bad movie, but just because it's an indie movie, shot on a low budget, doesn't make it a good movie. The movie is well written, the acting is very decent, but for me, it just didn't do it. From before the first scene in the movie, you can predict what is going to happen. The title says it all. They get the teapot, and all is well, then they get in trouble, but it all turns out for the best. blablabla same'ol same'ol. The only original thing about the movie is the teapot, but again, the title says it all. But if you're home on a Sunday afternoon and have nothing to do, this is definitely something to watch, also not a bad idea for a first date. It has a couple of laughs, partial nudity, a lot of intimate moments, and you don't really have to pay attention. Oh, and i did like the soundtrack/score. For that I gave it 6 stars
