After realizing the teapot's power, John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dream.Written by

When John and Alice are in the library, Alice rips a page out of the "Magical Objects and Potions" book. When John first notices, there are certain pages to the left and right of the torn out one. In the next shot with John, they are totally different pages with the torn page still in the middle. See more »
A bizarre, unique comedy about a down-on-their-luck couple who discover a stolen brass teapot has magical powers: whenever one of them is hurt, the teapot gives them cash. So they go on a campaign of self-inflicted injury to get rich. But eventually they must decide how far they're willing to take things.
This is definitely a different movie. Michael Angarano is likable and Juno Temple makes any movie better just by being in it. It starts off strong but loses a little steam once it gets into the teapot's mystery and the different people trying to take it. Then it gets ugly and it's just not much fun anymore. It's a shame because it could have been great. Still, it's watchable and it ends nicely after a long rough patch.
