is it really just Pecan Pie? Or the work of a Genius?
2 May 2004 | by C4EggshellsSee all my reviews

Yes. Pecan Pie the film, starring Jim Carrey and two unknown French Actors, directed by Music Video superstar, Michel Gondry, is about LIFE... and about taking chances. Pecan Pie is a token international film that crosses all boundaries, all racial inequalities, and breaks all gender stereotypes. As we have all seen with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and with the release of Gondry's video work by Palm Pictures, Pecan Pie (or PP for short) lets viewers far and wide into a world that only the priviledged intellect can truely understand. PP is not to be missed. PP is god. PP loves you.
