Albert Markovski (Jason Schwartzman), head of the Open Spaces Coalition, has been experiencing an alarming series of coincidences that have lead him to fall under the influence of nihilistic competitor Brad Stand (Jude Law); an executive climbing the corporate ladder at Huckabees - a popular chain of retail superstores. With the help of two Existential Detectives, Bernard and Vivian Jaffe (Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin), Albert examines his life, his relationships, and his conflict with Brad.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: It is difficult for me to describe how sweet and buoyant I found the film, despite its seemingly excessive stylization.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: Theirs is too painfully forced, from the movie's thin premise to its ideas about what's funny: Hoffman in a Beatles wig?
Zen Buddhism in a film
This is one of the few movies that really cover man of the aspects of Buddhism philosophie without being upfront about it. It's a great film with good acting and script. However, it's not for everyone though.
Loved this movie. Really loved it. Its the kind of movie to own. And I do not normally think that. You can get things from it again and again. Please make it for sale not rent.
Can;t buy it?
I want to buy this movie, not rent it!
