I ♥ Huckabees is a rarity-a tremendously optimistic film for a truly dark time.
Brilliant existential comedy for adults only.
| Original Score: 5/5
Russell directs an excellent cast in a thought provoking existential comedy that is very funny and very well acted.
I have no idea what the film is really all about, but this top line cast makes it so much fun, it doesn't seem to matter.
Metaphysics, madness and Mancala meet in this fun, fresh and overtly philosophical tale about, well, all kinds of things, really.
| Original Score: A-
This feverish state-of-the-split-nation address finds Russell tossing everything that matters -- and more -- into the pot, and producing a pretty indigestible and very messy stew.
If you're up for it, you'll discover a fresh, funny little romp unafraid to tackle the biggest issues of all.
| Original Score: 4/5
Despite an outstanding cast of actors and some funny moments, I never cared enough to believe that this movie was anything other than pretentious; the kind of movie they might show in Philosophy 101 classes.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Maddeningly uneven but mildly amusing.
| Original Score: B-
Si vous êtes prêt à suivre à votre maximum d'attention une comédie qui ne semble pas faire beaucoup de sens, vous risquez [...] de vous y retrouver.
| Original Score: B
I ♥ Huckabees might be too smart for its own good, but that also seems to be the point. Russell extols liberal activism while deflating its self-importance...
| Original Score: B+
A high-concept, high-minded piece of pseudointellectual trash, "I Heart Huckabees" is one of those stink bombs the intelligentsia like to champion.
| Original Score: C-
...while it is little more than a lightweight charade masquerading as deep wisdom, there were parts of it I enjoyed.
| Original Score: 6/10
At its heart, this is basically the story of one man's attempt to prove that his life has meaning. What could be more relatable than that?
I hate Huckabees!
I ? Huckabees really only succeeds on the level of slapstick, with Tomlin's impeccable timing being the chief delight.
| Original Score: C
The funniest movie I saw in 2004
| Original Score: B
A different kind of motion picture, one that challenges the status quo and gives audiences a skewed view on the typical. Here, here!
| Original Score: 7/10

| Original Score: 2.5/4
As with Russell's other films, Huckabees moves its audience from initial bafflement to a broader apprehension of a situation rife with complexity.
