#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – 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.

Generally fails to achieve its cinematic goal
It’s very interesting to think of how very much this movie could have achieved and didn’t. It was supposed to be a look at humanity versus consumerism and art versus marketability. The Pickle is actually three movies in one- we have the story of the director, the movie he has made, and the movie he wants to make. It’s a good idea…but something got lost in the transition from idea to film. The story of the director is pretty depressing and largely painful to watch. Aiello’s performance is merely adequate, and the relationships he rediscovers with his family and annoying girlfriend seem preachy and cliched. The movie he is about to release, about a giant pickle from outer space, is meant to be amusing high camp, but it’s just plain weird. And the movie he dreams of making, based on his childhood, doesn’t seem to have a real purpose. THIS moviegoer certainly wouldn’t pick it over the space pickle movie.
In a nutshell, I don’t think I’d pay money to see this film again, though if you bribed me with some of Little Richard’s liver-flavored jelly beans I might give it a shot.
Great midlife crisis fantasy
This is a great off-the-wall romantic comedy about love, work, pandering to the public taste, and midlife crises. The main character is a talented movie director who decides to make a silly PG-13 movie to get himself out of hock with the IRS. It has an excellent cast, a wide range of humor (from deadpan to slapstick), and fine writing. It’s also a wry send-up of the movie industry. The metacommentary includes several excellent cuts between reality and the movie that’s being made, and in some places the film departs from strict realism. The result is a multi-dimensional masterpiece of wry midlife humor.
