Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny.

Ramaa Mosley first learned about Tim Macy after typing "best Short Story" on google. The two later met online and decided to make the short story that was to be "The Brass Teapot" into a comic book before adapting it to film. See more »
During one scene when Alice and John are in bed after taking the teapot, the clock changes time from 2.46 to 2.34 vice versa add a minute or two, between each of the different shots. See more »
A lighthearted approach to a rich premise..and its funny.
I really liked Ramaa Mosley's debut. It's funny and manages to take on a deep premise with a lighthearted comedic approach. Sprinkled with slap-stick comedy and humorous dialogue that borders on the "did she really just say that?" The comedy ensemble includes Bobby Moynihan from SNL, Alia Shawkat from Arrested Development fame and Jack Mcbrayer from 30Rock. Why not? Normally, I wouldn't notice this type film but the cast really drew me in and the comedy kept me in my seat. I saw it twice. Both Juno Temple and Michael Angarano are constantly growing as actors and The Brass Teapot is a great example of their ever-improving talents.
