[5.50/10] An American Pickle (2020)

An American Pickle (2020)

Quick Review: Displaying sense of quirk by using pickles as a main plot device, this one is just as creative as it is ridiculous, and it juxtaposes the charms of the old times and the chaos of present nicely, but purely as a comedy "An American Pickle"  doesn't work, as it lacks not just wit, but proper humor as well, it gets sillier and sillier as the story unfolds, the overall commentary is clumsily delivered, and Rogen's double turn often gets too much, but at least it shows heart in the end.
