Now on demand: 'The Brass Teapot'

Is Juno Temple the hardest-working actress in Hollywood right now?
Last year the talented 23-year-old appeared in a range of flicks, from the art-house flicks Killer Joe and Jack and Diane to mega-blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises. In 2013 she has even more movies on tap, including the buzzed-about biopic Lovelace, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and the Sleeping Beauty-inspired Maleficent.
Right now we can see Juno in an intriguing comedy called The Brass Teapot. In it, she plays a woman who discovers a magical teapot that spits out money every time she or her husband (Michael Angarano) gets hurt. It doesn’t take long before things spiral out of control and they’re punching each other, having painful dental procedures and delving into the world of mixed martial arts.
The cast also includes Alexis Bledel, SNL’s Bobby Moynihan, Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat and Jack McBrayer. Check out the trailer:
The film has gotten mixed reviews, but I still want to check it out. (It was also directed by a woman; it marks Ramaa Mosley’s first feature.)
The Brass Teapot is now playing in select theaters and is available on demand. Watch it with a pal, then debate how much pain you’d withstand to earn a little cash.
