A Dysfunctional Family of Five Reviews...I Heart Huckabees!
Oct 2 2004 by Allen VoivodAnytime someone says, "Ooo, it's existential," our BS threat level goes from "Oh, give us a break" to "Get that crap outta our faces." But it's got Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Naomi Watts...hey, now it's sounding a little better, right?
Dad: What does it mean when you use "Huckabees" in the title and then never show the titular chain store?
Mom: It means you're reading too much into this movie, and that you're too pleased with yourself for finally working the word "titular" into a review.
Sis: It's like I was trapped in a room with my clueless career counselor, the AP Physics teacher, and the slow guy who bags our groceries. "Blah blah blah blah." Shut up already!
Bro: This movie's driving me crazy. Just when I'm totally bored with it, someone gets hit with a ball or rolls around in the mud! Which is it? Slapstick or suckage?
Baby: It's not as much of a head-trip as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but it's enough to make me feel like I'm all silly on grape-flavored Triaminic. David O. Russell is a talented writer/director, and he's got great actors who look like they're having a boatload of hoot.
Verdict: Big-screen matinee for the humanities and social sciences majors; a pass for the rest of you.
