Alice (Juno Temple) married John (Michael Angarano) despite the fact that he is not a success at business. John works as a telemarketer while Alice sends out her resume again and again without landing a job. Former classmates sneer. But, Alice loves John and visa versa and they enjoy each other's company despite scrambling to pay the rent. Yet, one fateful day, Alice and John get in a minor car wreck near an antique shop. There, while waiting for tows, Alice spies a brass teapot and is strangely, strongly drawn to it. When the owner is not looking, Alice grabs the pot and runs. The couple arrives home and, the next day, Alice accidentally burns herself with a curling iron. All of a sudden, the teapot starts spewing out paper bills, some very large. Guessing the secret, she and John start to mildly beat, pinch, and stumble themselves until they have quite a large fortune. A strange Asian man comes to the house to warn them the teapot is "no good" and they should get rid of it. Not listening, the couple buys a mansion in an exclusive neighborhood and dines at posh places. In time, thieves rob their safe and hurting themselves no longer works except for a few bucks. But, Alice soons finds another way to make the teapot give up the cash. Nevertheless, Alice has developed a dark nature that scares her husband. Can John convince her to let them give the pot away? This is a clever and amusing film but its not for all. There are some risqué concepts and scenes some won't enjoy. Nevertheless, the beautiful Temple and mildly cute Angarano are very funny while the scenery, costumes, and direction are definite assets. If you loved I Dream of Jeannie or a fan of Temple's, The Brass Teapot will reward you with an evening's enjoyment.
