3, 2, 1 … Frankie Go Boom is a terrible name for a movie. It doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, ya know? What it lacks in a good title, however, more than makes up for itself with a stellar cast, including Lizzy Caplan, Chris O’Dowd, Chris Noth, and Charlie Hunnam.
The plot is just wacky enough to go along with: O’Dowd is a filmmaker and recovering alcoholic who records his brother, Hunnam, and his girlfriend, Caplan, having sex. In a not-so-unexpected twist, the tape gets sent to Caplan’s dad, played by Noth, who happens to be a powerful movie mogul. Shenanigans occur and along the way good guy Ron Perlman shows up in drag and so does Adam Pally (who kills it on ABC’s Happy Endings).
I get the sense this is one that will find some legs once it hits Netflix. [via vulture]
