A strange movie, that mixes satire and moralistic drama. In it's satire it works quite well, similar in tone to Wet Hot American Summer. But it then also has the dramatic, emotional romance that it tries to mix into the rest of the film.A strange movie, that mixes satire and moralistic drama. In it's satire it works quite well, similar in tone to Wet Hot American Summer. But it then also has the dramatic, emotional romance that it tries to mix into the rest of the film. Sometimes the balance works great, but others it just spoils the tone. It's as if American Psycho and Pride and Prejudice were edited together. I feel like it compares a lot to the movie Saved, which came out a couple of years after Pumpkin. I feel works a lot better, it mixes comedy with romantic drama a lot more fluently in a similar elitist-school setting, and I just wish Pumpkin didn't have to be quite so heavy-handed in it's moralistic journey.
