SMALL APARTMENTS, Big Cast, Off-beat Trailer

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
Premiering last spring at SXSW, Jonas Akerlund's Small Apartments garnered decent buzz as a starring vehicle for British comedian Matt Lucas then went on its merry way to a string of other festivals, but hasn't really been heard from much since. Well, in light of a U.S. home release on February 19th 2013, we now have a trailer that, while not garnering any big laughs from me, I did find to be quite thoroughly and delightfully odd. Between Matt Lucas' vast arsenal of wigs, Billy Crystal's booze-hound of a detective, and --perhaps the icing on the cake-- Dolph Lundgren as a motivational author, things look most assuredly weird, with a definite touch of Scandinavian humor transplanted to the sun-bleached bogusness of SoCal.

And while there appear to be no grandmothers in the film, we do have everybody else, including James Marsdan, Juno Temple, Peter Stormare, David Koechner, Rosie Perez, Amanda Plummer, James Caan and Johnny Knoxville. Is a list of names like this enough of an enticement for you to seek out the film? Or did they have you at Dolph Lundgren: Motivational Author?

    Well, looks entertaining, so I might see it.........I do miss Elsa Hosk though.
