MC takes on bubbe to save Bat Mitzvah in new movie

Lynn Cohen as the feisty grandmother with a secret in the movie, “The Pickle Recipe.” Lynn Cohen as the feisty grandmother with a secret in the movie, “The Pickle Recipe.” Joey Miller is in a pickle. He’s the undisputed king of Detroit party MCs. He’s also a single father and deeply in debt. To make matters worse, all his prized sound equipment was destroyed in a freak accident, and to add insult to injury, his daughter Julie’s Bat- Mitzvah is only weeks away and she’s counting on him to MC her party.

After exhausting all of his options, he turns to his shady Uncle Morty, who agrees to give him the needed money to get back into business – but only under one condition. Joey must steal his grandmother Rose’s most prized possession: her famous top-secret dill pickle recipe. And it’s a recipe she has vowed to take to her grave.

That’s the set up for the new movie, The Pickle Recipe, in theaters Friday, Oct. 21.

The movie stars 81-year-old Lynn Cohen as the feisty grandmother, Jon Dore as Joey, and David Paymer as Uncle Morty.

Director Michael Manasseri says the recipe is really a metaphor for life and what connects families. “One of our characters talks about how the people in our lives are the ingredients that make us who we are. When something like a recipe is passed down from one generation to the next, it helps us remember people and places, those special moments that are dear to our hearts ... and our stomachs,” he says.

The movie was the brainchild of two former Detroit advertising executives Sheldon Cohn and Gary Wolfson and was filmed in Michigan.
