Frankie (Aramis Sartorio) leads a miserable life: He has a houseguest, Tommy (Brett Hundley), whom he can't stand but who constantly hits on his wife, he has a wife, Katie Apfelschwanze (Thea Martin), who hates him with a passion (but at least she hates Tommy just as much), and he has just broken his favourite cup ...

Then Katie throws out both Frankie and Tommy, and Tommy kidnaps her in return. She doesn't even mind that much, because at least she's rid of Frankie that way, and because Tommy and his accomplice Gary (David Reynolds) prove to be totally incapable of guarding their captive. Frankie however has the diffuse urge to save her, not so much because he wants her back, just to find closure. Thing is, Frankie has no idea where to look for her, and failing to look in the most obvious places like Tommy's flowershop (!), he goes on a quest that has him stumble across a holy hobo (John Karyus), a trio of stoners (Vincent Cusimano, John Brookbank, Bryan Planer) and their puppet child, a security guard (Caleb Emerson) tied to a toilet, a sexy robot (Karen Sartorio), an alien wannabe invader (John Christopher Morton) disguised as a mormon missionary so his actions seem less odd, and a spy (Sadie Blades) who spends most of her time slipping on dogshit. He is also visited by a human butterfly (Evan Stone) and a human spider (Debbie Rochon), but those at least might be part of his imagination.

Ultimately, Frankie actually finds Katie, but not thanks to his ingenuity but because Tommy and Gary are kind enough to kidnap him as well (for whatever reason) - but then they forget to tie him up. It all ends with Tommy and Frankie duking it out in a burning house with all the other characters watching and cheering them on. The last words belong to Katie though: "Today is stupid!"

 

It's pretty safe to say, Frankie in Blunderland is unlike anything you have ever seen before: It defies the rules of stringent storytelling, it defies logic, and at times it even defies the laws of nature. It's pretty much an anything goes-comedy, but I think it's better described as a tripped out wake-dream, characterized by its weird cast of characters, violent mood swings and non-sensical actions and dialogue. Don't try to make sense out of it, because there is none, except for of course "Today is stupid!" - and all of this makes Frankie in Blunderland quite so much fun, it's an immersive trip into someone else's mind that will fuck up your own - for the duration of the movie that is, and in an enjoyable way.

To sum this up, I can't but repeat, Frankie in Blunderland is unlike anything you have ever seen before, and it might not be a film for everyone, it might even offend so called "serious", stuck up audiences, but if you're able to keep an open mind, you will find lots to like about this one!
