The Hudsucker Proxy

Sherrie and I watched The Hudsucker Proxy a few weekends back and absolutely loved this film. It has a great message to it and plenty of good clean laughs. After watching it we knew it would be an instant family classic and immediately I put it on my Amazon wish list.

Tim Robbins plays a recent college graduate looking for a job and starts off at Hudsucker Industries in the mail room. As a result of the sudden death of the president from the 44th floor (or 45th including the mezzanine) he somehow becomes the next president of the company and unknowingly a part of a scheming plot to reclaim ownership of the company by the board of executives led by Paul Newman. Tim Robbins learns a lot of lessons the hard way, giving in eventually to fame and glory and puts aside those things that used to matter most in his life.

I won't give anything else away in the movie, you'll have to check it out for yourself!

It's rated PG for thematic elements (suicide) and some language (which we were able to avoid with the assistance of the TV Guardian).
