I Heart Huckabees

Critics Consensus

I Heart Huckabees certainly isn't for everyone, but audiences attuned to its quirky wavelength will find a singularly brainy screwball comedy that refuses to pander.

Movie Info

Environmentalist Albert (Jason Schwartzman) enlists the services of "existential detectives" Bernard (Dustin Hoffman) and Vivian (Lily Tomlin) to solve the meaning of a succession of strange coincidences. The investigators conclude that the backstabbing Brad (Jude Law) -- a public relations manager at big-box retailer Huckabees -- is at the root of Albert's angst. Brad tries to turn the tables, however, by hiring the philosophic duo for his own nefarious purposes.

Audience Reviews for I Heart Huckabees

  • Aug 05, 2013
    David O. Russell's 'I Heart Huckabees' is a unique and quirky film that proves to be too frazzled and quick. It loses it's viewer in most of the frenzy of what's going on and doesn't allow any catch up time. The cast is excellent though, with a Mark Wahlberg that really stands out as the most committed here. It's hard to follow this frantic existential film, but 'I Heart Huckabees' is an original experience that has a few tricks up its' sleeve.

    An eccentric existential comedy that is all over the place, I Heart Huckabees has a number of elements that just barely work separately, but when put together they form a mess of a movie that's only sporadically funny. It starts out interestingly enough, but after about 15 minutes it quickly devolves into a chaotic combination of increasingly preposterous side plots and characters. There are a few mildly entertaining scenes, but for the most part I Heart Huckabees just drowns in pseudo-intellectual dialogue and pretension. The movie has a complete lack of focus and makes for a waste of a talented cast and a huge disappointment, especially considering the generally reliable David O. Russell. Not worth a second glance.

    Contains a few moments of truth and is sometimes pretty funny, but far-fetched and confusing. I lost interest more and more as the film went on. To tell you the truth, I really couldn't tell you what the hell the movie was even about.
