L.A. Weekly - Ella Taylor
A fresh, buoyant, mischievous and rather jolly meditation - if that's the word for a movie as divinely nuts as this one is - on the meaning of life in an unhappy world.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
A lot of people are going to describe it as a waste of time, yet there's a likeability to the quirky characters that held my interest while tickling my funny bone.

Variety - David Rooney
Clever but distancing, this existential comedy bounces along on the backs of its tasty cast, witty writing and stylistic verve.

Village Voice - J. Hoberman
There's more than a bit of Charlie Kaufman to the heady premise, although the scenario doesn't double back on itself--except perhaps in the joke of having Schwartzman's actual mother, Talia Shire, play his mother on-screen.

The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Despite the unique premise and some truly inspired casting, the picture remains stuck in an existential rut of its own.

I Love Huckabees (2004)



A husband-and-wife team play detective, but not in the traditional sense. Instead, the happy duo helps others solve their existential issues, the kind that keep you up at night, wondering what it all means.
