A lighthearted approach to a rich premise..and its funny.
16 April 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

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.
