About the Movie
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.
Rotten: Theirs is too painfully forced, from the movie's thin premise to its ideas about what's funny: Hoffman in a Beatles wig?
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.
confusing? yes. awesome? definitely
don't watch this movie if you are looking for mindless entertainment. it makes you think, it's very weird and off-the-wall, but it's worth it. everyone in the cast puts in a good performance. worth the time and money.
Great movie about life philosophy
I <3 Huckabees is a wonderful, enjoyable movie that explores different takes on life and the universe. From the "everything is connected" theory to "living is pointless", it's all in here wrapped in interesting characters played by great actors who are fun to watch. I recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in life philosophies or fascinating characters.
I have been searching for this movie on here forever and now it is here but not for buying :( I am devastated. Please make it where you can buy it! This is such a great, almost artsy movie that is just vague enough to make you feel elite for knowing about it.
