Small Apartments movie scene

Matt Lucas ponders a drink--and his dead landlord--in Small Apartments.

Matt Lucas, who was so awesome in TV’s Little Britain, just as he was weird in Bridesmaids, appears in his first leading role in the 2012 comedy Small Apartments.

Lucas is Franklin Franklin, a clumsy recluse who embarks on a hapless cover-up after accidentally killing his landlord. Trapped in his seedy LA apartment with the body of the landlord on the kitchen floor, Franklin is surrounded by eccentric neighbors, including a stoner (Johnny Knoxville, Jackass: The Movie) and his girlfriend (Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect), a wanna-be stripper (Juno Temple, Killer Joe) and an artist (James Caan, The Gambler). To add to his problems, a drunk investigator (Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally) is questioning him about his landlord. But none of this fazes Franklin as he dreams of Switzerland, and waits each day for an envelope from his institutionalized brother (James Marsden, Straw Dogs)…

Directed by film and music video director Jonas Åkerlund (Spun, Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”) and based on the 2011 novel by Chris Mills,  the awesomely-cast film also features Peter Stormare (Fargo), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction), Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) and Rosie Perez (Pineapple Express),

The R-rated film premiered at the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival and will pop into some theaters for reviews a week before its DVD premiere on Feb. 19, 2013.

The DVD comes with the following two bonus featurettes:

·         “How To Build A Gravity Bong”
·         “Small Apartments: Behind The Scenes”
