I Heart Huckabees Reviews
A very funny movie
(seems like a contradiction but isn't)! The story comically presents archetypes at both ends of the spectrum while making some excellent points. If you didn't like it, you don't get it and you've never thought about it......! ...but that's okay, maybe in your next life you will....
Each character has their own crisis and self realisation/reinvention which provides the enough hook for viewer investment. The film is genuinely funny and Russell manages to get the most out of his actors with some of the best comedic moments coming from Jude Law and Naomi Watts.
Jon Brions' original score is wonderful also with 'Knock Yourself Out' still holding a spot on my playlists.
Also just saw that I?H is Jennifer Lawrences favorite film - which is revealing of her mindset and sensibilities.
Basically if you haven't seen this film and you are at a loss of something to do - give it a try!
So many lines will become quotes that infiltrate daily life and make you smile over and over. Viewers who know other "over philosophizers" will find it satisfyingly funny when their typical musings are parodied.
Wonderful performances by all the actors. And Jude Law's character journey is entertaining and well done.
