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 -- Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy. Very dark and cartoonish.
A visually arresting but emotionally uninvolving dark comedy.
Rating: 3/5 -- Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.
New York Times
It is possible to create something emotionally true out of second-hand ingredients, in fact that's what Hollywood does, but it isn't the Coen Brothers' strong point. Full Review
Rating: A -- [The Coens'] inventive style and the over-the-top performances from Robbins and Newman make this a feast for the eyes and a barrel of laughs. Full Review
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. 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.
