Opening in theatres this Friday from director/writer Jordan Roberts and Variance Films comes a head shaking comedy that calls for a “3,2,1…Frankie Goes Boom.”
This film tells the story of Frankie Bartlette (Charlie Hunnam), a young man living out in the middle of the Mojave Dessert to get away from his family. Having spent most of his life being severely embarrassed by his brother Bruce in the form of videos (Chris O’Dowd) living away from home is the only way Frankie can find peace.
But that isn’t to last when Mom Karen (Nora Dunn) blasts Frankie’s phone telling him to come home for Bruce’s rehab graduation. Guilted into going Frankie shows up having a little faith that maybe things have changed for his brother.
Bruce quickly introduces him to his friends Jack (Chris Noth) an actor who believes Bruce has potential to be a film director. Once Frankie realizes that Jack’s belief is based on a viral video Bruce made of Frankie’s wedding – he loses it. In a hurry to get away from his crazy family causes Frankie to become involved in a little car on bike action with Lassie (Lizzy Caplan).
