Black comedy about disability full of profanity, sex.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2009
One of the worst films of 2002.
October 9, 2006
Rambling and diffuse, this debut film vacillates between the Farrelly brotthers' gross-out comedy and a softer, kinder message film, an incoherent blend that proves frustrating and not particularly enjoyable either.

Like a grinning Jack O' Lantern, its apparent glee is derived from a lobotomy, having had all its vital essence scooped out and discarded.

Pumpkin is a movie that resists categorization, that manages wit, intelligence, audacity and pointed social commentary while still entertaining us with a terrifically bizarre combination of soapy, ultra-stylized satire and blackly comic fairytale.
December 8, 2002
Successfully blended satire, high camp and yet another sexual taboo into a really funny movie.

Although there are many juicy supporting performances, Christina Ricci owns this movie. What a wonderful talent, and what a maddening, but enjoyable film.

Christina Ricci comedy about sympathy, hypocrisy and love is a misfire.

By halfway through this picture I was beginning to hate it, and, of course, feeling guilty for it.... Then, miracle of miracles, the movie does a flip-flop.

Though Harris is affecting at times, he cannot overcome the sense that Pumpkin is a mere plot pawn for two directors with far less endearing disabilities.
October 10, 2002
Ambitious but moth-eaten satire.

September 20, 2002
A savage John Waters-like humor that dances on the edge of tastelessness without ever quite falling over.

This low-rent -- and even lower-wit -- rip-off of the Farrelly brothers' oeuvre gets way too mushy -- and in a relatively short amount of time.

Ricci's Carolyn is entrenched so in her small worldview, so surrounded by sameness, that as she opens her heart to Pumpkin it's entirely believable.

All the filmmakers are asking of us, is to believe in something that is improbable.

This is the sort of Pumpkin that really deserves to be smashed.

The fledgling directors juggle a few too many balls and aren't quite up to the challenge.
