3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom

By JOHN LOCANTHI

Siblings don’t always get along. Maybe your little brother kicked over your Lego castle, or your little sister gave your Barbie a haircut. Or maybe your little brother is a convicted felon trying to get into the porn industry by filming you when you can’t get it up. That’s the gist of Jordan Roberts’ attempted comedy 3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom. Frankie (Charlie Hunnam) is an uptight, whiny bitch of a character who’s been hiding out in a trailer in Death Valley trying to write the Great American Novel or at least get away from his brother, Bruce (Chris O’Dowd). Frankie comes back to spend time with his family and hooks up with Lassie (Lizzy Caplan) along the way. Well, sort of: Erectile dysfunction rears its ugly head. Naturally, Bruce gets this on film and shares the wealth. The next excruciatingly long 80 minutes center on the siblings’ moronic attempts to get the film back, while the humor is stuck at the “sex, drugs and LOL” level. But, hey, you get to see Ron Perlman in drag (what is he doing in this turd, anyway?), and Lizzy Caplan in edible underwear. So there are always those two things.
