Synopsis:
Herschel Greenbaum (Seth Rogen), a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1919, falls into a vat of pickles at his factory job and is preserved in brine for 100 years. He emerges in present-day Brooklyn to find that he hasn't aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he learns that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can't even begin to understand.

Dont bother - An American Pickle review by cr

I like Seth Rogan but this was poor. Culture clash between a guy from a 100 years ago is preserved in brine then meets his relative in the future. Yuh that old chestnut! I could deal with the unlikely premise if it was funny but its not. Just a lot of ranting. Its a short film but couldn't make it to the end. Poor.

Worst film of 2021 ? - An American Pickle review by JD

Spoiler Alert

This awful movie is a strong contender for the “ Worst Movie of the Year” award.

It’s just not funny, but racist too.

We turned it off a long time before the end, and by a quirk of fate , were able to watch Trump and the riots in Washington, live on CNN.

A REAL AMERICAN PICKLE.

Seems strange that other people did not enjoy this film, i thought it was hillarious ,maybe its a generation thing i dont know.

But i laughed all the way through it.

Sometimes i think all people want these days are short cuts,rapid camera movements, and bullet sqibs .

This film was a reflection on just how much we take forgranted in todays society done in what i considered to be in a very clever humourous and observant way .

Forgive me but i did not find it racist where did that come from !
