Hudsucker ProxyRating: Evil.

Would give this a bad were it not for being a Coen bros w/ Raimi on board. That is, such talented folks failing so hard and wasting my time and expectations…

Magical negro much? Sexist much? Jennifer Jason Leigh insano-unintelligible accent (Southern belle, British, Yankee, hick, alternately)? Bunch of stupid side characters? Paul Newman completely wasted? Weird fixation on suicide? Incomprehensible handling of mental handicap threat plot point?
