Didn't See Huckabees but I Heart This Clip

I didn't see the movie and after reading about it I'm not sure I even want to.
Apparently the movie is about some environmentalist that strikes a deal with a department store (Huckabees) to sponsor him in his environmentalizing, he soon goes farther than they bargained for and is planting trees in the middle of their parking lots and whatnot. Lilly Tomlin and Dustin Hoffman play existential detectives for some reason. Also, Jude Law, Marky Mark and Naomi Watts are in it.
Now, what all of that means I'm not really sure but apparently Lilly Tomlin and the director - David O. Russell did not get along very well.

That movie was *mad* weird. It's apparently study of existentialism and if you took a college course on existentialism, then you would appreciate it. If not, then it's just a weird movie with mad arbitrary scenes and characters.

Re: this clip. That is no way for a director to act. The guy threw a hissy fit that would make a 13 year old girl from Orange County jealous.

I like the crew streaming out in the foreground as the director is throwing his tantrum.

Wow. So we wait and wait for Luke to finally show up and what happens? He mails it in with some YouTube clip. Get back on that milk carton!
