Product Description

Product Description

Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin lead an all-star cast including Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Walhberg in this outrageous comedy from director/co-writer David O. Russell (Three Kings). Kindhearted but confused activist Andrew Markovski hires a pair of screwball "existential detectives" (Hoffman and Tomlin) to help him find the meaning of life. All the while, a sexy, French author (Isabelle Huppert) is trying to throw a wrench in their plan by seducing andrew's mind and body.

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This movie is obviously not for everyone. It's not a comedy that you just put in and sit back and be shut down the old cranium for the two plus hour's. Nope, instead you get the muscle a-cranking. Huckabees requires you to really pay attention and think and take everything in. This film explores several questions mainly dealing with the connection between one person and to the heart, soul, and body of every other thing in existence in an ever-changing world. This film is a big orgy of questioning. And who doesn't like questioning? This film, in its own right, is very original and thought provoking that goes above and beyond any form of typicality of films.

"Huckabees" offers us an impressive cast with Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Mark Wahlberg, Isabelle Huppert (one of my favorite international actress's) and Naomi Watts. Most notable performances by, namely, Dustin Hoffman as it's nice to see him in an exceptional role. He hasn't really been given a great script and chance to portray a great character since probably 1997's "Wag the Dog." It's very nice to see Hoffman play a great character, as Bernard, the quirky husband half of the existential detectives. Also, most notable is the performance of Mark Wahlberg, as Tommy Corn, another client of the detectives that befriends Albert. Tommy is a fire fighter who has his own environmental concerns as he refuses to ride on the fire truck and rather, rides a bike to the fire saying, "We'd all be heroes if we stopped using petroleum." Mark Wahlberg is hilarious in this movie and has his best performance since probably "Boogie Nights" and "Three Kings." However, this movie is much more of an ensemble performance than anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Heart This Movie! March 2 2005
By natasha
Format:DVD
"Will likely divide audiences between those who find its deliberately abstruse discombobulation amusing & to the point, and those who find it just abstruse & discombobulated."
-- Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWIRE (from [...])
This reviewer says it all - if you love eccentric, absurdist comedies a la Charlie Kaufman (Human Nature, Eternal Sunshine) and enjoy the quirky, affectionate comedy of Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, Tenenbaums), you will LOVE this movie! If, on the other hand, you prefer a good Vin Diesel action flick or a romantic comedy, don't even think about it. Finally, a movie that keeps up with my mind... a perfect concoction of pathos, humour and intellectual discourse all wrapped up in one. The film keeps you so humorously entertained that you don't notice all the existential discourse that's trickling down your throat. Not surprising from the writer/director of the hilariously goofy and smart "Flirting with Disaster". Some viewers found the overtalking distancing, I thought it was razor-sharp and oddly effortless in its artificiality. And it's funny as hell. Self-examination has never been so painless! Not as emotionally affecting or profound as it could have been, but more spiritual and heartfelt than any philosophy movie has a right to be (not just inane, heady banter). Take it from an ex-philosophy student who spent years debating the existence of "somethingness" vs. "nothingness" (as in the film)! Although purists be forewarned - this is philosophy for the masses.
It takes actors this good to make such a rollicking, almost non-coherent plot into a such a riveting piece of entertainment... Jude Law's performance is phenomenally unrecognizable, as is Mark Wahlberg in a stunning thespian tour-de-force (who knew he could act?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quirky, Clever Comedy on Philosophy Dec 28 2005
Format:DVD
I didn't think anyone could make a good comedy out of a subject that is as dry as philosphy, but I was proven dead wrong with "I Heart Huckabees". It's a very fresh and original concept. The plot never runs stale, with unexpected twists and turns at every corner.
I love the witty dialogue, the wacky characters and the movie's mildly surreal tone. The cast is generally good; the highlights are Naomi Watts' model-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous-breakdown Dawn Campbell, Mark Wahlberg's agitated, petroleum-obsessed firefighter Tommy Corn and Isabelle Hupert's dark lady of philosophy Caterine Vauban. The humour reminds me of "The Royal Tenembaums", so if you like Wes Anderson's work, this flick will tickle your funny bone, too.
It's missing one star because there are a couple scenes that are just plain gross. I know the film's supposed to be absurd, but sometimes it goes a wee bit too far. Moreover, Jude Law's attempt at an American accent is AWFUL!!! *shudders* His speech ends up being a disconcerting mish mash of British and American sounds, as if he's trying to talk with a tomato in his mouth!
