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: 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 -- Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.

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.
Variety

A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Criminally overlooked and sinfully wonderful Coen brothers comedy. Jennifer Jason Leigh is just flawless here.

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:

Mailroom clerk Norville Barnes is a rube, a schmo, a grade-A ding-dong -- just what Hudsucker Industries wants in a president. With him at the top, the stock will hit bottom... and the fat cats on the board can take over. But Norville (Tim Robbins) has his own spiffy little plan. And if a snoopy reporter (Jennifer Jason Leigh) doesn't put the kibosh on the Hudsucker flimflam and finagling big cheese Sidney J. Mussburger (Paul Newman) doesn't squash him, Norville's idea will put a smile on the hips of all America.
