Movie Reviews

  • zany time-slip comedy; There are laughs along the way..inevitably, as with so much high-concept comedy, the real laughs; An American Pickle is a tasty, insubstantial snack of a comedy
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • Seth Rogen's bizarre dual performance is one of his best; Playing against himself as both an Eastern European immigrant and his Brooklyn great-grandchild, Rogen singlehandedly rescues this strange Jewish satire
    Review rate : B- by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
  • Seth Rogen shines in dual role in this sweet, earnest fable; An entertaining fable that makes up for some weak plotting with a strong dual Seth Rogen performance
    3 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • part time-travelling family drama, part idiosyncratic immigrant-adventure comedy, An American Pickle's gags underwhelm, but its emotion and originality will surprise you. One of oddest films of 2020 so far, buoyed by two superb turns from Rogen
    3 of 5 by Al Horner [Empire Magazine ]
  • not everything sticks; "An American Pickle" is the kind of movie that never quite decides what it wants to be. Pick a lane, as they say. Otherwise, you’re all over the place
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • it gestures toward controversial ideas but always swerves back to a simple but profound message of togetherness and family, and the personal importance of honoring tradition and memory
    by Katie Walsh [Los Angeles Times ]
  • a tough movie to dislike; the captivating dual-role performance of Seth Rogen; "An American Pickle" is neither the most substantial nor the most sophisticated comedy, but its soulful sweetness outweighs its flaws
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a solid film with a few good gags and a fair amount of heart; this is a lot of Rogen. It's fun to see him flex and stretch acting opposite himself. He doesn't get enough credit for his more serious turns and this is a nice showcase overall
    by Lindsey Bahr [Associated Press ]
  • "An American Pickle" is a fun, fleeting buddy comedy that stretches its humorous premise a bit too thin, minimizing the story's impact
    3 of 5 by Chris Agar [ScreenRant ]
  • "An American Pickle" is not Seth Rogen's best movie. But, in its own ridiculous and crass way, it may very well be his most mature
    3 of 4 by Brandon Katz [Observer ]
