Product Description

Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin lead an all-star cast including Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Walhberg in this outrageous comedy from director/co-writer David O. Russell (Three Kings). Kindhearted but confused activist Andrew Markovski hires a pair of screwball "existential detectives" (Hoffman and Tomlin) to help him find the meaning of life. All the while, a sexy, French author (Isabelle Huppert) is trying to throw a wrench in their plan by seducing andrew's mind and body.

Additional Features

The single-disc edition of I Heart Huckabees has two commentary tracks: the first is writer-director David O. Russell on his own, providing a more low-key assessment of the film and the Buddhist philosophical endeavors that inspired it; he's not the raving lunatic that Sharon Waxman's scathing 2004 profile in The New York Times would lead you to believe. The second commentary, with Russell and his primary cast, is much more of a party-like romp, strictly optional but entertaining for anyone curious about anecdotes from a production that was apparently a lot of fun. Devoted fans might prefer the abundance of bonus features on the two-disc special edition. --Jeff Shannon

"I Heart Huckabees" is the ultimate love it / hate it movie. Few will say, "I could either go see 'I Heart Huckabees' or whatever else is playing at the multiplex."

Me? I loved "I Heart Huckabees." I loved it so much I can't even review it. I loved every performance, every line of dialogue; I loved it so much I want to form a club with others who loved this movie ... Normally, I can't stand Jason Schwartzman, and even he didn't ruin it for me.

How can you tell which camp you'll fall into? Here's a test. Agree or Disagree with the following statements:

1.) My friends and family tell me I think too much, and that my life would be much easier if I would just relax and not rock the boat.

2.) I've tried meditation, but gotten sidetracked when I found myself imagining taking a machete to people who annoy me.

3.) I could pick Franz Kafka out of a line-up that included Jean Paul Satre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Buster Keaton.

4.) The thought of sex with a nihilist leaves me contemplating nothingness, and yet strangely aroused.

5.) I've always wanted to see Marky Mark bicycle in fireman's knee-high rubber boots, while protesting the world petroleum crisis.

6.) I once lost a girlfriend / boyfriend to someone who was cover-model pretty / handsome, but had no soul, and that, yet again, caused me to think too much, and then to meditate, and then to imagine the whole machete thing.

7.) I think that the objectification of women is shallow and obscene, and Amish bonnets turn me on.

8.) Dustin Hoffman does a faux friendly, "I've got your nuts in my cracker" smile better and better as he ages.

9.) Lily Tomlin is reason enough to see any movie.

10.) Cruely, Manipulation, Meaninglessness.

Give yourself as many points as you want for each "yes" answer, and then give yourself an equal number of points for each "no" answer. Cause, you know? It's all one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This IS a DIVINE COMEDY!! June 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Thank you for I (HEART) Huckabees! Any attempt to consider the kinds of questions this film takes on are always welcome in my home. I was happy to see such a talented and varied team of professionals working on this film. This is a testament to their own open-mindedness and courage. I was fascinated throughout, not only by the performances of the actors, but also by the way in which the screenwriter presented his ideas...and the music...that was pretty cool too.

The film has been recapped already in these reviews. I have a checklist of who I think would particularly like this movie:

1. Anybody going through a big transition in their life (death, breakup of a relationsihp, change of work, moving).

2. Anybody who hears, contemplates or practices the teachings of Buddhism in all of its garden variety manifestations.

3. Anybody who knows they survived a difficult childhood (in one way or the other).

4. Anybody into philosophy - particularly Existentialism or other Eastern philosophies besides Buddhism - like Hinduism or Zen.

5. Anybody who wonders why I have not included their particular "TRIP" in this check list: so if you are a Southern Baptist, an inmate on Rikers Island, a European financier, a female CEO, a refugee from Sudan or your typical run of the mill, ordinary, imperfect human being...consider yourself on the list too.

CHECK IT OUT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars In my crazy world, weird = compelling... December 28, 2005
By D. Gold
Format:DVD
Let me start off by saying, if you like "weird" movies that tend to draw a cult following (i.e. Napoleon Dynamite), you SHOULD love this gem. I did. If you want to know what the movie is about, read the back of the display case or any of the hundred or so reviews on Amazon.com. Let me provide you with some compelling reasons to purchase this disc: 1) Make no mistake, this film is WEIRD; 2) It has an underlying feel-good tone, making it a perfect flick to come home to after a crappy day at the office; 3) It ranks high on the "re-watchability" scale; 4) While the humor isn't for everyone, those that do find it funny, find it EXTREMELY funny; 5) The cinematography was very interesting and incorporated elements that I had never seen before in a film; 6) The soundtrack made an already funny film, funnier (and weirder); 7) The star-studded cast really nailed their roles; 8) I'd buy it for the "dinner scene" alone. All in all, this movie isn't for everyone, but those who enjoy it, enjoy it immensely. Please feel free to disagree with my opinion; let us compare opinions, invite a few more points of view, and debate, like the humans we are.

I HEART HUCKABEES takes a look at the existential meltdown of Albert Markovski (Jason Schwartzman), an employee at Huckabees (the equivalent of the WalMart chain of stores), who also works to promote the planting of trees in public spaces, while writing irate poetry in a notebook and trying to figure out his raison d'etre in the world. Enter Bernard (Dustin Hoffman) and Vivian (Lily Tomlin), a team of existential detectives, who also happen to be married to each other. They are determined to take on Albert's case, pro bono, and find out the root cause(s) of his anxiety and what blocks him from becoming truly free of what shackles him to his turbulent past. Through taking on this pro bono case, Bernard and Vivian also have encounters with Albert's colleagues at Huckabees, who are struggling with identity crises of their own--co-workers Brad (Jude Law) and Dawn (Naomi Watts).

I really don't know how to best describe this film. If you are looking to compare this to a distinctive style, I would say the closest it comes to is the brilliant THE SEARCH FOR SIGNS OF INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE, written by Jane Wagner, and performed by Lily Tomlin (who steals this film, along with Dustin Hoffman). HUCKABEES truly examines what drives us in life, what is coincidence, what lies in our ultimate control in the world and how it shapes our personas in the world. I reccomend that you really take the time to see this film in one sitting, and you may even need to go back and watch it again to catch all of the nuance.
