Huckabees = No Good

I finally got around to renting the movie I (heart) Huckabees, and it turns out that I really don't heart Huckabees at all. There ARE several funny parts, if you're into weird existential humor that's a little tough to follow (and I am!) but they're not worth the effort of waiting through the excruciating boredom of the rest of the movie and the often blistering blue streaks that really don't serve any purpose except to remind me of myself in the early 1990's.

Bottom line: There are lots of better things to do with 106 minutes and $2.50 so don't waste either on this movie.

Gee, I thought it was great…destined to be a classic. My husband didn't. He thought just like you. But then I've read a lot of Robert Thurman, so he figures that's why I liked it. I watched it as an allegory, not to be taken as a “real” story. The weird kind of boring scenes often made sense in a metaphorical way that my background reading of Thurman helped me “get”…as it were.

I had no idea what kind of movie it was…just was on cable last night. I was so pleasantly surprised. So I guess I’m just trying to mitigate the “No Good” vote ya put up. (~:

I didn't know what it was either, but the first thing I had heard of it was the quote about transcending space and time. I thought that was hilarious, so I rented it. You liked it tho, huh? Could be you're even weirder than me. Naaah.
