A genuinely wonderful comedy, brought to life be a genuinely wonderful cast and an interesting director.
| Original Score: 79/100

For all its madcap whimsy, the film still manages to pack a much more powerful intellectual and moral punch than, say, your average Hollywood blockbuster.

Succeeds because it never takes itself that serious despite its heady premise.

I heart this film! Do you like quirky comedies? Existential philosophy? Or at least, do you like (or need) to spend a little time reflecting on meaning in your life?

[T]alk all they want, nothing the characters say alters the [simplistic] melodramatic mechanism.

The director of Three Kings asks: If all people want is cheap oil and Wal-Mart convenience, should liberals just give up?

I Heart Huckabees combines slapstick humour, a witty, off-the-wall script and a collection of wonderful performances from its superb ensemble cast.

Russell is a cool and clever director, with a vision all his own.

To watch David O. Russell's zany farce is to see an alert mind at work, but the movie doesn't work. Huckabees is a distancing intellectual film with too small a heart.

David O. Russell continues to prove just how wacky a filmmaker he truly is. In "'Huckabees" the laughs are mixed, but the wackiness couldn't be more inspired.

While the director may have ambition to admire and career-risking courage to respect, the sad truth is his new movie has almost nothing to heart.
| Original Score: 1/5

In this chaotic style of skit moviemaking, plot resolutions are thrown at you like a multiple choice quiz.

Feel free to Honk if you love Huckabees, but don't be surprised if the person sitting next to you flips you the existential bird through their inner moon roof.

Quirky enough for me to recommend it, but its self-satisfied braininess diminishes what could have been a truly wonderful film.

I have no idea what writer/director David O. Russell was trying to accomplish with this messy but not-quite-a-disaster of a movie.

Those who find the film too confusing are missing the point -- there's no philosophy here to "get," just mockery of the folks who think there is.

Trying to decode the film through its entertaining philosophical ramblings leads nowhere substantial... [Huckabees] is a vision of contemporary US divisiveness.

plays entirely by its own rules. Russell has never been a filmmaker who kowtowed to convention... and the satiric 'Huckabees' is no exception.
