3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom Details


Two brothers are forced to work together to stop the spread of an incriminating videotape in this independent comedy. Would-be novelist Frankie (Charlie Hunnam) lives in the desert to avoid his family, and with good cause -- his older brother Bruce (Chris O'Dowd) has spent much of his life videotaping Frankie in humiliating circumstances, and was waiting with a camcorder when Frankie was dumped during his own wedding. (Bruce posted the wedding video on the Internet, where it has been viewed three million times.) Shortly after being released from rehab, Bruce records Frankie's less than satisfying rendezvous with Lassie (Lizzy Caplan), and when a copy somehow finds its way to an on-line porn site, Frankie is desperate to have it taken down before too many people see it. Bruce is angry that his brother is getting in the way of his career as a "filmmaker" until he learns Lassie is the daughter of Jack (Chris Noth), a washed-up action star who befriended Bruce in rehab. Bruce thinks Jack might be his ticket to making real movies in Hollywood, except for the actor's violent mood swings and unbending loyalty to his daughter. 3, 2, 1 . . . Frankie Go Boom also stars Ron Perlman, Whitney Cummings and Nora Dunn. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
