Gordon P. offers a candid movie review, Just saw _I `Heart' Huckabees_. I did NOT `heart' it. =NO= aspect of this movie makes sense --- it is "theatre of the absurd." Basically, it is two hours of rather annoying people, none of whom are even remotely likable or empathy-evoking, being very cruel to each other, while uttering random babble cut and pasted from from "New Age," "postmodernist," and "Politically Correct" screeds. I conclude that it got such rave reviews because: 1.) None of the reviewers wanted to admit that this movie utterly baffled them; and 2.) They could not bear to give a "Politically Correct" film about "Existentialism" starring anyone is revered as Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Huppert, Lilly Tomlin, or a host of up-and-coming stars as lousy a review as this cut-and-paste really deserved... :-( I recommend that you give it a pass...
