No. 6: I Heart Huckabees

movie posterMetaphysical bon mots ricochet like ping-pong balls between the characters played by the dream-team cast of Jude Law, Dustin Hoffman, Naomi Watts, Lily Tomlin and French star Isabelle Huppert in this screwball-paced comedy. Brought to you by Three Kings war-caper director, David O’Russell, our favorite bit of dialogue goes:

Tommy: Did you get it?

Albert: Yeah, you stop thinking.

Tommy: Yes, it’s fantastic.

Albert: It’s like I’m here, but I’m not . . . So, I’m not here.

Tommy: I don’t know. Do it one more time.

Albert: It’s like I’m a rock or a dish of mold.

Tommy: I’m whatever else is around. So I’m free to just exist.

Albert: this is the answer. We have to be this all day, every day.

Try it yourself: I Heart Huckabees
