Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Like all non-mainstream comedies, Huckabees can be considered an acquired taste. I'll admit that 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.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 87 moviegoer opinions. WOW! These are some VERY MIXED OPINIONS! The detailed opinions show a mix of things moviegoers didn't like about this movie. And oddly enough, many of these same things were what some moviegoers said they liked about the movie. Some examples of these were that it was very deep and very different. So, if you like your movies to be a little unusual/strange then this movie's for you. If you like your movies to be more normal then you'll likely want to skip this movie.
The opinions show that most teens enjoyed Huckabees. The same goes for the twentysomething males and females. So, if you're young your probability of enjoying this movie is actually quite good.
The 30+ crowd, both male and female, mostly didn't care much for it or hated it. A small percentage did enjoy it, but you would really be taking a chance seeing it, unless of course you enjoy unusual movies.
Albert Markovski (Jason Schwartzman), head of the Open Spaces Coalition, has
been experiencing an alarming series of coincidences the meaning of which
escapes him. With the help of two Existential Detectives, Bernard and Vivian
Jaffe (Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin), Albert examines his life, his
relationships, and his conflict with Brad Stand (Jude Law), an executive
climbing the corporate ladder at Huckabees, a popular chain of retail
superstores. When Brad also hires the detectives, they dig deep into his
seemingly perfect life and his relationship with his spokesmodel girlfriend, the
voice of Huckabees, Dawn Campbell (Naomi Watts). Albert pairs up with rebel
firefighter Tommy Corn (Mark Wahlberg) to take matters into their own hands
under the guidance of the Jaffes' nemesis, the French radical Caterine Vauban
