A bizarre, unique comedy about a down-on-their-luck couple who discover a stolen brass teapot has magical powers: whenever one of them is hurt, the teapot gives them cash. So they go on a campaign of self-inflicted injury to get rich. But eventually they must decide how far they're willing to take things.
This is definitely a different movie. Michael Angarano is likable and Juno Temple makes any movie better just by being in it. It starts off strong but loses a little steam once it gets into the teapot's mystery and the different people trying to take it. Then it gets ugly and it's just not much fun anymore. It's a shame because it could have been great. Still, it's watchable and it ends nicely after a long rough patch.
