Rating: 3/4 -- An impressive technical achievement--the period New York sets are to die for -- and its version of the invention of the hula-hoop is a comic highlight. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.
New York Times
Rating: C -- A pastiche of a movie that lacks distinct identity and authenticity, made up of borrowed parts from scrwball comedies Frank Capra, Howard Hawks, and Preston Sturges. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy. Very dark and cartoonish.
Nearly everything in the Coen brothers' latest and biggest film seems like a wizardly but artificial synthesis, leaving a hole in the middle where some emotion and humanity should be.
Rating: 4.5/5 -- Few of the Coen Brothers' films spike the vein of pure pleasure as easily. It's an irresistibly loquacious, unpredictably riotous comedy that dares you to keep up with its daffiness and doesn't give a damn whether you get left behind. Full Review
The Film Yap
A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
When the founder of Hudsucker Industries leaps to his death from the 44th floor boardroom window the board of directors panics. But there is a plan: install a complete imbecile as president of the company and devalue the stock so the board can acquire a controlling interest for themselves. But where can they find such a guileless patsy? Enter Norville Barnes. Fresh off the bus from Muncie, Indiana, as a graduate of the 1958 class of the Muncie College of Business Administration, Norville is ready to start at the bottom and work his way up to the top of the corporate world ... he just never imagined it would happen so quickly.
