When we last saw Rebel Wilson and Matt Lucas, they were the weird brother and sister roommates to Kristen Wig in Bridesmaids. Well those funny albinos are back in this odd and super hip story about what? G-d only knows. My guess is that it’s some existential journey our protagonist Matt Lucas is supposed to be on. Oh wait …here’s the official synopsis.
Franklin Franklin plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbors is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busybody who doesn’t miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin’s real problem. His real problem is that his landlord is dead, laid out on the linoleum of his kitchen, and Switzerland seems farther away all the time.
And there you have it.
