Melodramatic comedy about a husband and wife team of detectives who specialize in existentialism. They investigate their clients lives in order to help their clients understand the meaning of life and their place in the universe.

Solid acting and original screenplay. Its fun and exciting following it throughout. Great watch.

When I saw this in theaters in 2004, it felt like it had been made just for me. I watch it every couple of years, and it still resonates and makes me smile. I highly recommend it to anyone who is open-minded, idealistic, able to poke fun at themselves, and cares about the environment. (I can't be the only one!)

Really surprised I didn't like this movie - thought it would be right up my street.

One of my favourite moves of all time. Funny, interesting and different.

I thought that Mark Walhberg and Jason Schwartzman were really funny in this! I also loved how silly they made existentialism out to be with all the nonsense the characters were saying!

Admittedly, you have to be in the right state of mind for this movie. But the satire of a human tendency to take life too seriously and over-inflate the meaning of various events is sheer brilliance. Wahlberg's character is so brazenly comical and extremist to counter Jason Schwartzman's poetic over-analyses.
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.

The general opinion about this movie seems curiously divided between finding it either smart or pretentious, but for me it is neither, rather a quirky, mildly funny story that makes a welcome use of existentialist issues and a great cast. Good, though nothing special.

I Heart Huckabees is a movie that does not need an audience; it's content to indulge itself in its own musings about existentialism, nihilism, and philosophy, and leaves the viewer alienated and frustrated.

Awesome movie! One of my all-time favorites!

After having this compared with films like "My Dinner with Andre", "The Seventh Seal", "Waking Life", etc., I ended up sleeping after the first thirty minutes and after hearing the word "existential" 101 more times than a Philos101 book.

The film fails miserably in the area of keeping anyone's attention that isn't studying it in the first place, and when the concepts attempt to concrete themselves in the characters' lives, the result is just...ignorable.

I'm a big fan of films with bigger ideas than the screen would lead you to believe can be expressed, but IHH trips somewhere in the first paragraph and never gets back up.

I have watched this film several times and I consistantly LOVRE it. Happy, hopeful and yet painfully truthful and intelligent. A truley GREAT film (IMHO).

9/5/15 I had seen this before, but just rewatched it. I really have a hard time rating this film. It has a few moments that are quite funny, but the whole feel is just SO weird. It seems to concentrate too hard on just being weird instead of being a good story. There are an absolute ton of famous people in this film, which seems strange in and of itself! If you like something totally bizarre, then give it a try.
