The hilarious adventures of four struggling young bachelor roommates.
I first saw this really funny film in Manhattan at the New York Independent Film and Video Festival and I was laughing throughout the whole movie. "Flophouse" revolves around four struggling young bachelor roommates- Ray, Steve, Benny and Jim who are being evicted by their angry landlord, Mr. Goss. The guys have to figure out what they are going to do, so they decide to go camping and wind up getting chased by some hillbillys who try and shoot them! Meanwhile Benny, (the only roommate with a job) slips at work and lands in the hospital. To make things even more tough, Jim, (the antagonist roommate)is caught stealing some food in Ray's room and breaks his leg diving out the window to get away from the confrontation of being caught by Ray and Steve. Now Jim's in the hospital too, but not for long, when the doctor is not around he makes a mad dash out the fire escape and hitch hikes home, back to the Flophouse. Great performances by all of the roommates and rest of the cast, but the chemistry between actors Thomas Wilson Brown and Bernie Coulson as best long time friends Ray and Steve is impeccable. It's so real. The makeshift fun things like a homemade pool table with coffee cans to catch the balls, (a broom stick for a pool cue, that is actually chalked up before shooting) and the homemade jacuzzi made from a refridgerator all add to the uniqueness of this hilarious film. Also, the music is great, bands like Electric Frankenstein, Frisbie, Kevin Lee, Nutrajet, All Systems Go, make for a very tasty and fresh soundtrack. I really enjoyed this entertaining, hilarious, classic film that will be around
