Not even the slightest attempt is made to suggest that the film takes its own story seriously. Everything is style. The performances seem deliberately angled as satire.

Clever but cold, a heartless mechanical gizmo.

If something brilliant is happening in The Hudsucker Proxy -- and you're meant to believe that it is -- it's apparent only to Ethan and Joel Coen.

While not to everyone's tastes, this is without doubt one of the most exhilarating films of 1994.

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.

Worth seeing for its quirky invention, but it's hard not to wish that so much talent could come with a little more heart.
