THE PICKLE RECIPE

ROG'S VIEWPOINT - Desperate for cash, party emcee Joey (Jon Dore) is coerced by his Uncle Morty (David Paymer) into stealing his Grandmother Rose's (Lynn Cohen) treasured secret pickle recipe. Strained family relationships are
tested in a surprisingly dull story. This comedy is hampered by few laughs and uneven acting. It's too bad because Lynn Cohen steals the show as the feisty granny. Rated PG-13 for brief suggestive humor and drug references, "The Pickle Recipe" is more dill than sweet. **
