I heart "I Heart Huckabees"

Continuing with my year-long movie extravaganza, today's movie was:

I Heart Huckabees (2004)
Directed by: David O. Russell
Written by: David O. Russell & Jeff Baena
Starring: Jason Schwartzman, Lily Tomlin, Dustin Hoffman, Jude Law, Mark Wahlberg, and Naomi Watts

I saw this movie in the theater when it was released in 2004, but today was the first time I'd seen it since then (I think...not entirely sure).  I love movies that are different, and this one is definitely different.  Existential detectives?  I love that idea...these screenwriters are incredibly creative.

The film has a great cast, too.  Has anyone seen Jason Schwartzman's HBO series, Bored to Death?  It's pretty good.  He's a talented guy (but he's a Coppola, so that's kind of expected).  Here's a fun fact about I Heart Huckabees: Schwartzman's mom, Talia Shire, plays his character's mother in the movie.

Note to Jude Law: You need to work on your American accent. Naomi Watts totally kicked your ass in the "Non-American playing an American" department.

Oh, and one more thing: Mark Wahlberg. Best part of the movie.
