Russell directs an excellent cast in a thought provoking existential comedy that is very funny and very well acted.

I have no idea what the film is really all about, but this top line cast makes it so much fun, it doesn't seem to matter.

Metaphysics, madness and Mancala meet in this fun, fresh and overtly philosophical tale about, well, all kinds of things, really.

Si vous êtes prêt à suivre à votre maximum d'attention une comédie qui ne semble pas faire beaucoup de sens, vous risquez [...] de vous y retrouver.

I ♥ Huckabees might be too smart for its own good, but that also seems to be the point. Russell extols liberal activism while deflating its self-importance...

At its heart, this is basically the story of one man's attempt to prove that his life has meaning. What could be more relatable than that?

A different kind of motion picture, one that challenges the status quo and gives audiences a skewed view on the typical. Here, here!

As with Russell's other films, Huckabees moves its audience from initial bafflement to a broader apprehension of a situation rife with complexity.

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?

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