The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)

www.amazon.com/s/?ur..
Category: Entertainment
When Waring Hudsucker, head of hugely successful Hudsucker Industries, commits suicide, his board of directors, led by Sidney Mussberger, comes up with a brilliant plan to make a lot of money: appoint a moron to run the company. When the stock falls low enough, Sidney and friends can buy it up for pennies on the dollar, take over the company, and restore its fortunes. They choose idealistic Norville Barnes, who just started in the mail room. Norville is whacky enough to drive any company to ruin, but soon, tough reporter Amy Archer smells a rat and begins an undercover investigation of Hudsucker Industries

This film gets better with each subsequent viewing
The first time I saw this film, I enjoyed it. No doubt about it.

I wondered why some people didn't like it. What's not to like?

I saw it again, and paid more attention to some of the finer details, realizing what a rich, full textured film it was.

And yet again I saw it. Still more revelations.

In fact, every time I see it, and I'm sure to see it again, I enjoy it more and more with each subsequent viewing.

This film's narrative is nearly as perfect as the Hula Hoop itself, despite the albeit fictional account of the invention of said "dingus".

But it strikes me as odd and unfortunate when I encounter someone who's seen this and not enjoyed it.

All I can say is, have you tried it more than once? It isn't exactly what I'd call an acquired taste, but when you see how rich in detail and humour it is, you may begin to appreciate it for what it truly is; a great film that deserves a second chance.

Underated
One entertaining flick. Not epic like Shawshank Redemption but one of Tim Robbin's better movies. Its worth watching at least once

Hudsucker Stinks
So much Hollywood talent and money wasted on a bad idea, so what else is new? The Coen's have jumped the shark with this take off of the American Screwball Comedy of the 30's. I cringed every time Jennifer Jason Leigh tried to imitate Katharine Hepburn's classic gargle. The poor actress may have destroyed her career with this stinker.

One whole line?? How about one word: QUIRKY.
The Coen Bros., as most know, are all over the place when it comes to their film releases. They've done somewhat lighter films, but even Burn After Reading has it violent "holy shit I can't believe that just happened" points. This movie, however, lacks that. That's not to say someone has to die a sudden violent death in every film, it's just that this one rests in the campy, quirky, cheesy area of cinema. I wish I could give it two and a half, because I'm not quite sure it deserves three checks, but don't want to slam it with two. It's light and fun, just not in that great 80s John Cusack way, but in a "can't we forget about the early 90s?" way. It has its moments, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. If it's on the tube at 1am and you find yourself eating Crisco from the tub, I'd say give it a watch.

Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy.
A jeering, dreamlike comedy with nothing much on its mind except how neat the Coen brothers are and how stupid or contemptible everybody else is, including everyone in the audience

Worthwhile
As will all Coen brothers films, this one calls me to see it again, as I always seem to discover new elements when watching their works for the second, third, fourth times, and beyond. A very worthwhile film.
