Editorial Reviews

Director Paul Mazursky (Down and Out in Beverly Hills Scenes From a Mall) takes a bite out of Hollywood with a hilarious look at the artistic sell-out. Starring Danny Aiello Dyan Cannon Shelly Winters Jerry Stiller Chris Penn and Ally Sheedy this merciless comedy exposes the underside of the movie land commercialism with a crisp sense of humor a knowing edge and supporting cast boasting the talents of Clotilde Courau Barry Miller Little Richard Spalding Gray and a host of celebrity cameos. Harry Stone (Aiello) always dreamed of making "The Great American Movie." Instead he made The Pickle - a teenage sci-fi flick about a flying cucumber. Harry just wanted to get out of debt; and now everyone he's ever known loved and neglected is standing in line for tickets. In the angst-filled hours before the lights go down for the New York premiere his mother children agent ex-wives and girlfriend lend their support in this high-pressure comedy. Harry has no choice but to pucker up and laugh along.System Requirements:Running Time: 102 Min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: R UPC: 043396076495 Manufacturer No: 07649

2.0 out of 5 stars Great teaser trailer .... October 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The trailer for this film, was great, funny, and made the movie look as though it too might be funny, and a viable buy. Danny Aielo, is a great actor, Dyan Cannon .... but the plot was thin, the humor was really non existent. Looking back, even the trailer isn't funny anymore. It was a waste of money to make, a waste of my money to buy and a waste of my time to watch ....

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a PICKLE. Better than the Killer tomatoes September 15, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this on Amazon and bought it for....one cent. How could I go wrong? And it was fun to watch, although I wonder if it was released in theaters? It is better than many other comedic films. And it has a lot of laughs. How can anyone go wrong when postage is the biggest past of buying it?

THE PICKLE (1993) stars Danny Aiello as Harry Stone, a burnt-out, depressed movie director. After three major stinkbombs in a row, his current project, "The Pickle" is totally ridiculous and Harry knows it, yet as a professional he does his best to get into the spirit of the thing while filming ("More pickle juice!").

This insipid "movie within a movie" features a gigantic misshapen gherkin that transports kids to outer space, a planet where everyone dies by age 49, and Little Richard as the President of Cleveland with his liver-flavored jelly beans.

Directed (for real!) by Paul Mazursky. The excellent cast must've felt trapped in a nightmare while shooting, but they undoubtedly swallowed their pride (along with lots of pickle juice) to appear in this cucumber. Included are:

Dyan Cannon, Shelley Winters, Barry Miller, Jerry Stiller, Chris Penn, Little Richard, Steven Tobolowsky (remember him as "Needlenose Ned the Head" in GROUNDHOG DAY?), Ally Sheedy, Spaulding Gray, Fyvush Finkel, the entire Mazursky family, plus in uncredited cameos: Donald Trump, Isabella Rossellini and Dudley Moore.

A roster THAT good yet a movie THIS bad! Can you believe it?
