Black comedy about disability full of profanity, sex.
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.
November 8, 2002
One of the most uneven motion pictures that I've had the displeasure of sitting through over the past few years.

...a pretentious mess...
November 7, 2002
Christina Ricci comedy about sympathy, hypocrisy and love is a misfire.
November 5, 2002
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
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.

This is the sort of Pumpkin that really deserves to be smashed.
August 15, 2002
The fledgling directors juggle a few too many balls and aren't quite up to the challenge.
August 15, 2002
In trying to be daring and original, it comes off as only occasionally satirical and never fresh.
August 9, 2002
It's clear the filmmakers weren't sure where they wanted their story to go, and even more clear that they lack the skills to get us to this undetermined destination.
August 3, 2002
Smug, artificial, ill-constructed and fatally overlong...it never finds a consistent tone and lacks bite, degenerating into a pious, preachy soap opera.
July 30, 2002
Some of their jokes work, but most fail miserably and in the end, Pumpkin is far more offensive than it is funny.
July 26, 2002
Would be considered an interesting failure, only it isn't all that interesting.
