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 »

Started out alright, but then the steam went out of the kettle...
17 April 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"The Brass Teapot" started out as quite alright and lasted so up until just after the mid-point or there about, then the steam started to escape out of the kettle (if you get the pun), and it drastically went down in speed and lost appeal fast.

The story is about a struggling young couple who happen to come across a magical brass teapot that has the ability to conjure forth money whenever there is pain and misery in its vicinity. And while every seems to be grand and wonderful with all the money in the world at hand, the curse that the teapot bears soon starts to take a toll on the couple.

I will say that the storyline was good and it had some very interesting moments and aspects. And there were also moments throughout the movie that were great and funny. But it just started to become a dragged out pain to sit through the movie somewhere after the mid-point.

Acting-wise, then "The Brass Teapot" does have some good actors and actresses to the cast list. And it is good to see talents that are in the movie for the talents and not just because they are glamorous and famous.

"The Brass Teapot" had potential, but it just wasn't fully put to use. While I enjoyed the first part of the movie, I ended up with my phone in my hand a couple of times throughout the last part. And as such, because the movie failed to keep my attention, then I am rating "The Brass Teapot" a mere mediocre 5 out of 10 stars.
