List of Seinfeld episodes

"The Movie" is the fifty-fourth episode of the sitcom Seinfeld. It was the 14th episode for the 4th season. It aired on January 6, 1993.


Jerry schedules two stand-up acts in the same night and afterwards goes to the movie theater to meet everyone. George gets in the wrong line for tickets. George, Elaine, and Kramer decide to go to another theater to see the movie "Checkmate". Kramer waits outside for Jerry but also wants a Papaya King hot dog. Jerry misses his first show, then goes to movie theater to tell everyone he won't make the movie, but no one is there. Through a comedy of errors, everyone (but Kramer) misses the movie they were originally going to see.


  • The fictional film Rochelle, Rochelle ("a young girl's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk. It’s a story about life and love and becoming a woman.") makes its first appearance in this episode. George later rents it from the video store in Season 4's "The Smelly Car", and it is turned into a Broadway musical starring Bette Midler in Season 6's "The Understudy".
  • Jerry is described by Kramer as having a big head and a horse face and by George as having flared nostrils. George is described by the ticket lady as looking like Humpty Dumpty with a melon head. Elaine is described by George as having a wall of hair and a face like a frying pan. Kramer is described by Elaine as a tall, lanky doofus with a bird face and hair like the Bride of Frankenstein.
