An American Pickle

While the movie starts off with a rather ridiculous premise this premise actually resulted in some really funny scenes by the two leads.  The problem that this movie had is that as it got past the easy story lines created by the premise and required the story to be moved forward it started to lose steam.  The film actually did touch on questions such as religious belief and the value of family but never really seemed to know what it was doing.  By the end it just seemed to limp over the finish line with the ending we all knew was coming.
