Pickle has no business being as funny as it is. INDIEWIRE
Let us reflect on the brief existence of Pickle the fish. Although he could not swim, he was lovingly cared for by a couple that kept him propped up in a sponge. Along with an obese chicken, a cat with a heart condition and a paraplegic possum, his life is a celebration of mans eternal capacity to care for all creatures. He will be dearly missed. This film chronicles 25 years of Tom and Debbie Nicholsons unbelievably bad luck with a bevy of rescued animals, from the eponymous Pickle the fish to an entire flock of ill-fated fowl.
