It's like a '30s screwball comedy that's gone to grad school...hits the ground running, flinging verbal and visual information at you with machine-gun velocity. Your mind is engaged and delighted.

While superficially I Heart Huckabees is a deranging experience, it ends up being deeply reassuring.
June 24, 2006
This feverish state-of-the-split-nation address finds Russell tossing everything that matters -- and more -- into the pot, and producing a pretty indigestible and very messy stew.

Never binds into a satisfying whole.
October 22, 2004
A rewarding- frustrating smart-silly comedy of pretentious- modest ambitions.
October 15, 2004
Russell is obviously working out his considerable angst ... but in an admirable attempt to opt for a manic, stream of consciousness energy, he ends up annoying his audience instead.
October 15, 2004
So willfully, smugly eccentric that it grows tiresome rather quickly.
October 15, 2004
Adventurous, challenging and filled with small moments of delight. Unfortunately, it's also self-indulgent, repetitious and the sort of movie you wish was great but isn't.
October 15, 2004
You have to give everyone involved credit for mounting a joke that, if not of Dadaist proportions, should prove pretty funny to everyone except the rubes who wander in expecting to see something they can comprehend.

In a way, the movie is about everything and nothing, but its real problem has less to do with its philosophical ambition than with its scattered, half-digested musings.
October 15, 2004
It's a mad, mad, mad, mad, meaningful world, indeed.
October 14, 2004
It is difficult for me to describe how sweet and buoyant I found the film, despite its seemingly excessive stylization.
October 14, 2004
Along with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it's the most playful, intelligent and original comedy of the year.
October 12, 2004
An ambitious but disjointed spoof of New Age quirks and quacks that attempts to simultaneously put down and lift up. But, despite the A-list ensemble, it accomplishes neither.
October 8, 2004
There's ambition here, as well as a shaggy brilliance and a rare willingness on the part of a director to work out his questions in front of us, on film.
October 8, 2004
Theirs is too painfully forced, from the movie's thin premise to its ideas about what's funny: Hoffman in a Beatles wig?
October 8, 2004
With razor-sharp performances, zingy one-liners, broad slapstick humor and a message of sorts, there's enough to distract the viewer from becoming hopelessly lost in the lint-filled chaos that is the umbilicus.
October 8, 2004
It's like a screwball comedy written by the existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre.
October 8, 2004
I don't quite know what the point of it all was, but I do know that I enjoyed watching it.
October 8, 2004
It's simultaneously tightly ordered and awfully cluttered.
