Movie Info

Joey Miller is the undisputed king of Detroit party MC's. He's also a single father and deeply in debt. To make matters worse, during his latest, one-of-a-kind wedding performances, all his prized sound and lighting equipment is destroyed in a freak accident. To add insult to injury, his daughter Julie's Bat-Mitzvah is only four weeks away and she's counting on him to MC her party. After exhausting all his options, he turns to his shady Uncle Morty, who agrees to give him the money he needs to get back into business, but only under one condition. Joey must steal his grandmother Rose's most prized possession: her famous top secret dill pickle recipe. It's a recipe which she has vowed to take to her grave.

Critic Reviews for The Pickle Recipe

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

Look, you can see where all this is going in the first 15 minutes, but getting there is plenty of fun.

The pickles in "The Pickle Recipe" apparently have quite a kick. The movie, though, is pretty flavorless.

November 3, 2016 | Full Review…

Rose's pickles might have a pleasant snap, but there's none to be found in the tired, limp shtick in Sheldon Cohn and Gary Wolfson's screenplay, which has been choreographed at a lumbering, drawn-out pace by director Michael Manasseri.

November 3, 2016 | Full Review…

Despite a solid central performance by film veteran Lynn Cohen and a Detroit setting that will please expats and current residents of the Motor City, there is little here to lift this film beyond its regional appeal.

November 3, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Ethnic comedies have their limitations, and a sharper script would have helped this one to stand out from the pack. Nevertheless, audiences in a forgiving mood will enjoy the byplay among an appealing bunch of desperate characters.

"The Pickle Recipe" is one of those movies that has its heart in the right place. And almost nothing else.
