"Any movie with a blind photographer is 4-star!"
4 stars

how can you not like a movie called 'Pecker' and featuring more phallic symbols than you can shake a stick at.

If shaking sticks at phallic symbols is your cup of tea...

Anyway, it was funny. But, it was too light-hearted, as all of the funny things were when they got more darkly satirical.

Edward Furlong is annoying, but convincing. Christina Ricci is unbelievably gorgeous (unbelievable 'cause of Wednesday Addams), and also talented. And everybody else was competent and or convincing.

But something was missing. A little originality.

but, I did laugh, a lot.
