The Pickle Recipe

The Pickle Recipe

“...good Jewish jokes, heartwarming discoveries, and plenty of indie-flick entertainment.” – The Santa Barbara Independent


Joey Miller is the undisputed king of Detroit party emcees. He is also a single father and deeply in debt. To make matters worse, during his latest, one-of a-kind wedding performance, all of his prized sound equipment is destroyed in a freak accident—and as luck would have it, his daughter Julie’s bat mitzvah is only four weeks away. After exhausting all of his options, he finally turns to his shady Uncle Morty, who agrees to give him the money to get back into business–but under one condition: Joey must go and steal his grandmother Rose’s famous top secret pickle recipe which she has vowed to take to her grave.

A riotous comedy about a dysfunctional family, an attempted heist, and a darn good pickle.
