Great movie about life philosophyI <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..Score: 4/5

A Strangely Good MovieI first decided to see this film after discovering that a much younger Jason Schwartzman played one of the lead roles. At first, I was confused and unsure more than anything on what the film was actually about, and what the whole point was. After watching it a second time, I got the point, but I didn't at the same time. However, the true meaning behind the film was to find the meaning of life and that somehow, everything in the universe is connected. "I Heart Huckabees" reflects upon the story of Albert, a 21-year-old poet and activist who hopes to find the meaning behind his coincidences by seeking help from two married detectives, but these are not your typical detectives. They hope to help him by finding out why and how he has become the person he is, with a little help from his new found friend, Tom (played by Mark Wahlberg) and an eccentric novelist and philosopher who sees life in a different light. The story may sound confusing enough, though I read up that the film was not necessarily supposted to make that much sense, but to still have true meaning behind it, which is to find out the philosophy of life..Score: 4/5
GGGGGGGreat FliC!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..Score: 5/5
I Hate Huckabees!Based on the first few reviews posted here, and some from the real world, we watched this movie. Big mistake!!!! This is a totally pretentious, awfully written, embarrassing and unfunny mess of a movie. Maybe I would have liked it if I was a 13-year-old wannabe philosopher, but I'm not. Therefore, I couldn't appreciate the mix of slapstick and pseudo-meaningful dialogue, which reminded me less of the talk between intelligent people, and rather more like existential crises on The Hills, and exactly as tedious. Even if Huckabees was meant to be satire at the expense of blue state culturati, this can't make up for the movie's grim unfunniness, its underwritten characters, and its need to be dramatically edited (or re-written, while we're at it, or heck, not done at all!) in order to make any sense. Worst of all, not only was it a waste of my time, but a waste of talent, with decent actors who should have been busy working on good projects, versus total crap. Maybe this is what happens when someone gives Hollywood an intro to philosophy 101 textbook. Whoever committed this crime - shame, shame, shame!.Score: 1/5

Funny and WeirdI *heart* Huckabees is a great movie! Although it's rather strange and pretty confusing, it's well worth watching. And I don't think it should be marked down in stars just because iTunes won't offer it to purchase, that's just not fair. It's not for everyone, and it's rated R for a reason, but it's still a great movie!.Score: 5/5
Wild... since when is existential thought by nature elitist?Great movie. Literalists beware (or break free...). Lots to love here. Hoffman and Tomlin are great. And what an illuminating cultural commentary... when several reviewers comment that existential thought is somehow a privilege reserved for society's elite. Religion, social movements... these are not the tools of the elite. Set yourselves free, people....Score: 5/5
