|3,2,1… Frankie Go Boom
What keeps “Frankie Go Boom” from going completely into the gutter is the young, brilliant cast. Charlie Hunnam recalls his days on “Undeclared” with this straight-faced comedic role, making his bad ass persona on “Sons of Anarchy” impress that much more. Chris O’Dowd is the driving force of comedy, as the misfit brother pushing the raunchy plot all the way through. Lizzy Caplan proves she’s well on her way to bigger and better things, no longer just playing the quirky, tomboy friend, but expanding into a viable and adorable love interest that you root for.
I am not entirely sure why Ron Perlman would step into the role of the transvestite, but he definitely holds nothing back. In line with films like “Orange County” and to extremes like “Freddy Got Fingered”, “Frankie Go Boom” and its spark may not live on like those previously mentioned films, but it was rather enjoyable from start to finish.
