Based on the comic book series "The Brass Teapot" about a mid-twenty-year-old couple who, in these difficult economic times, finds a mysterious, magical brass teapot which makes them money but at a surprising price. After realizing the teapot's power, John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dream. Written by
Whilst the Brass Teapot starts off promising, it then slumps into a typical melodramatic snore fest that you may find in a Disney kids film. Though I will admit, The Brass Teapot is a cool idea, the unfortunate part of this is the jealousy that follows. The whole time I was thinking what I could do with it rather than focusing on the narrative of the film. It's funny, but tragic at the same time. Dumb decisions are made which makes you cringe and the recycled material of the story leads nowhere exciting.
A good attempt to make a good film, but for the most part this film turns out so-so. It loses its charm quickly, which is unfortunate and its comedy factor gets weary. Definitely the film that could have been.
