7 Chinese Brothers

Jason Schwartzman is Larry, an unqualified, inebriated, slacker, sad sack who manages to land a job vacuuming cars and washing windshields. Co-stars TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.

"The only bright spot is probably his boss, Lupe (Eleanore Pienta). Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman's real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major (Adebimpe), and do his cantankerous grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud?"

The sharpest moments cast mundane struggles in a nearly spiritual light.

By widening his soulful puppy eyes - matched only, quite eerily, by those of his French bulldog in real life, Arrow - Schwartzman successfully dares audiences to care.

Schwartzman smarms his way through Bob Byington's very funny 7 Chinese Brothers as if the pic had been drawn up especially for him.

There's absolutely nothing novel about a "loser gets it together" arc ... But for those who just want to see Schwartzman be Schwartzman for an hour or so, 7 Chinese Brothers delivers the goods.
