Revisiting the Huckabees Freakout

We wanted to post this set freak out because:

A) It's a fucking classic
B) We LOVE Lily Tomlin
C) We Definitely Heart Huckabees

A little back story.

I ♥ Huckabees was a GREAT movie that came out in 2004. It stars Jason Schwartzman, Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Isabelle Huppert, Mark Wahlberg and Naomi Watts and is one of those films that really sticks with you (and you can quote from for the next 40 years.)

The plot involves...well you just have to see it. Existential Detectives, an environmental group, a department store model, crisis of conscious...well, it's all there.

There was a Bale-esque set freak out, years before there was THAT Bale freakout, and it centered around Lily Tomlin's disdain for the directors direction and the subsequent freak out of so-said Director, David O. Russell.

Footage is grainy at best but enjoyable nonetheless.

You can see Dustin Hoffman pacing uncomfortably, Jason Schwartzman taking it all in and one scared to death crew member who learned to duck fast.

BTW, this isn't the only "leaked" video regarding this particular movie production. In another behind the scenes look you can find Lily telling Dustin to "shut the fuck up."

God, we love her.

Bonus Huckabees scene - What happens in a meadow at dusk? Movie magic.
Plus, a young Jonah Hill in his first movie role.
