film: I Heart Huckabees


This film is a disappointment. There are funny moments, but overall the acting is forced. There's no feeling of authenticity. It's like watching the acting in a mediocre play.

As for the story, it drowns in pretense. There's so much "existential" mumbo-jumbo thrown around, but it doesn't result in a compelling or highly watchable story. This is a dud for otherwise bankable stars like Dustin Hoffman, Lilly Tomlin, Naomi Watts and Jude Law.

I would not watch this film again. It is nowhere on par with Three Kings, a better David O. Russell film.
