The Hudsucker Proxy Reviews

Nick Rogers

Few of the Coen Brothers' films spike the vein of pure pleasure as easily. It's an irresistibly loquacious, unpredictably riotous comedy that dares you to keep up with its daffiness and doesn't give a damn whether you get left behind.

Emanuel Levy

A pastiche of a movie that lacks distinct identity and authenticity, made up of borrowed parts from scrwball comedies Frank Capra, Howard Hawks, and Preston Sturges.

A visually arresting but emotionally uninvolving dark comedy.

A jeering, dreamlike comedy with nothing much on its mind except how neat the Coen brothers are and how stupid or contemptible everybody else is, including everyone in the audience.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An impressive technical achievement--the period New York sets are to die for -- and its version of the invention of the hula-hoop is a comic highlight.

Nearly everything in the Coen brothers' latest and biggest film seems like a wizardly but artificial synthesis, leaving a hole in the middle where some emotion and humanity should be.

Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy. Very dark and cartoonish.

A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers.

Criminally overlooked and sinfully wonderful Coen brothers comedy. Jennifer Jason Leigh is just flawless here.

| Original Score: 5/5

Looking Closer

[The Coens'] inventive style and the over-the-top performances from Robbins and Newman make this a feast for the eyes and a barrel of laughs.

Stinging Coen brothers satire.

Nick's Flick Picks

A rare Coen Bros. misfire, never quite as nostalgic or clever as the dialogue or art direction imply.

| Original Score: 2/5

Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.

The style is wondrous, but the movie is about its style and nothing else.

Another Coen knockout.

Not the Coens' best, but better than casually assumed

This film seems to be the key to understanding the Coen's work as a whole.

Uber-quirky but strangely satisfying.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

This wild-eyed, sentimental, old-fashioned comedy is definitely parked in Frank Capra-Preston Sturges-Howard Hawks territory, but it is also imbued throughout with the Coens' own brand of genre-tweaking and sly, winking humor.
