Watch: The Pickle 1993 123movies, Full Movie Online – Harry Stone (Danny Aiello), a formerly top notch director, has had three disastrous movies in a row. Facing dismissal from the top perch of Hollywood and financial ruin from back taxes, he is forced to take on a very commercial and, he believes, ridiculous movie. Now as he faces the film’s release and, he believes, another total flop which will complete his ruin, he meets up with his son and daughter and his former wives (which includes Dyan Cannon) to examine his life and his future. The film examines the turmoil a movie director goes through with a film release. His agent (Jerry Stiller) assures him that he has a hit, while those around him wince (as does the audience) at the thought of the movie within the movie. The movie is “The Pickle”, a supposedly social satire where a bunch of kids from Kansas take vegetables into space via a super cucumber and land on an Earth-like planet where everyone lives only on beef and die at age 49. As shown in the excerpts of the film, Little Richard stars as the President of the planet who has 6 months to live, Ally Sheedy heads up the Kansas contingent, and Griffin Dunne is the President’s aide who falls in love with Sheedy..
Plot: Harry Stone 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; now everyone he’s ever known, loved and neglected is standing in line for tickets.

A bad movie ABOUT a bad movie
A bad movie ABOUT a bad movie. Is that original, or what? If it is, then that’s the only good thing about it. The lovely Ally Sheedy couldn’t stop this bomb from destroying movie theaters and VCR’s everywhere. It should also be noted, that she, and the other actors hired by Danny Aiello’s character were billed as themselves, as well as the characters they played in his D-rated film. Calling it a B-rated film, is too much of a compliment, and would lead to delusions of grandeur.
Not totally bad…
It’s hard to decide what to say about this one. It isn’t totally, one hundred percent bad. Although the movie-in-a-movie is unspeakably bad, meant to be campy, but missing by a mile. I’m pretty sure that this is intentional, however. Danny Aiello is perfectly adequate here, and more or less nails his pathetic character. Dyan Cannon was good in a small role. Clotilde Courau was impressive as the latest twenty-something girlfriend. And Linda Carlson had a brave topless scene that she pulled off very well.
So, it’s not totally bad, but I don’t believe that this one accomplishes its goals. All in all, it’s probably worth passing on.
