The Event Program
- Movie presentation of Small Apartments
Inside his rundown, small apartment on the south side of Los Angeles, Franklin Franklin (Matt
Lucas) dreams of spooning with his mighty alphorn deep in the tall grass beside a clear, alpine
lake in the perfect nation of Switzerland. The only problem is, Franklin has just killed his
landlord, Mr. Olivetti (Peter Stormare), and needs to figure out how to get away with it.
Complicating Franklin’s plans are his neighbors: Tommy Balls (Johnny Knoxville), the slacker
pothead, Mr. Allspice (James Caan), the old, nosy, know-it-all who monitors everyone’s
movements in the building, and Francine (Saffron Burrows) and Simone (Juno Temple), the
hard-working MILF and her daughter—who’s nothing but hot, teenage trouble.
Franklin’s plan to dispose of Mr. Olivetti is not without its flaws and soon L.A. County Fire
Investigator, Burt Walnut (Billy Crystal), and a pair of bumbling detectives are close on
Franklin’s heels. All the while, Franklin receives recorded “life-coaching” advice from his
brother, Bernard (James Marsden), a resident of the local insane asylum. Bernard’s audiotapes
are stuffed into envelopes with regular shipments of toenails and sound strangely like the
teachings of world-renowned TV mental guru, Dr. Sage Mennox (Dolph Lundgren).
Just when things look bleakest for Franklin, when there seems no way for his escape, and just
as each of his neighbors close in on their own destiny, Franklin gets a surprise he never saw
coming. And suddenly, that advice from his loony-bin brother doesn’t sound so crazy after all.
