Movie Info

So many screenwriters have surreptitiously updated the works of Mark Twain with contemporary jargon and "political correctness", without saying they've done as much, that it's a bit refreshing to see an admitted, all-out updating of Twain. Scenarist Chrstopher Sturgeon has transplanted the characters and situations of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn into a modern-day setting that accomodates both Hannibal, Missouri and Las Vegas, Nevada! The "Huck" counterpart, played by Chauncey Leopardi, escapes his abusive stepfather in the company of a cardsharp named Injun Joe-played herein by genuine Native American Graham Greene. Featured in the cast are such surefire laughgetters as Joe Piscopo and John Astin, the latter cast in the "Widow Douglas" role (you have to be there). As audacious and stilted as it sounds, Huck and the King of Hearts works, and works beautifully.

Audience Reviews for Huck & the King of Hearts

A cute family oriented movie. Huck leaves home to search for his grandfather who he only knows through letters. He ends up in Last Vegas and along the way becomes friends w/ Graham Greene who's been a losing streak w/ cards but Huck may be just the person to turn things around for him. Viewd on DVD -- borrowed from library October 29, 2008.
