I Heart Huckabees
When a mystery needs to be solved, and it's not a whodunit but rather a maze involving complex emotions, it requires the expertise of intellectual -- and perhaps slightly kooky -- detectives Vivian (Lily Tomlin) and Bernard (Dustin Hoffman). Jude Law and Naomi Watts co-star in David O. Russell's quirky comedy that finds the existential husband-and-wife team helping a do-gooding client (Jason Schwartzman) who's plagued by twists of fate.

I Heart HuckabeesClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has extremely strong language ("f--k," "motherf---ker," "c--ksucker," "s--t," "bulls--t," "d--k," "p--sy," "a--hole"), and some sexual references (frequency of sexual intercourse is discussed, as is masturbation) and one brief explicit sexual situation (one of the male characters is shown with long blonde hair and female breasts, as one of the other male characters sucks on one of the breasts until milk comes out). Characters drink and smoke. The movie includes mild comic peril and some tense confrontations.
- Sexual Content
- Two characters are shown having sex in a marsh. They are clothed but are in a sexual position. In a brief dream image, one of the male characters is shown with long blonde hair and female breasts, as one of the other male characters sucks on one of the breasts until milk comes out. A woman is in a bikini posing in a sexual manner as she promotes Huckabees. The frequency of sexual intercourse is discussed, as is masturbation.
- Mild comic peril and some shoving. Two characters repeatedly hit each other in the face with a dodgeball. One character sets another's house on fire, almost leading to the death of one of the female lead characters.
- Frequent profanity throughout the film: "f--k," "motherf---ker," "c--ksucker," "s--t," "bulls--t," "d--k," "p--sy," and "a--hole." In the first scene, the lead character's first words are a torrent of curse words, and he repeats this torrent later in the film.
