The Hudsucker Proxy Reviews

September 7, 2011
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 6, 2007
A visually arresting but emotionally uninvolving dark comedy.
November 6, 2007
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.
November 6, 2007
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.
June 24, 2006
A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers.
May 20, 2003
Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.

A wickedly funny and incisive lampoon of big business.

January 1, 2000
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.
