The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)
“You know? For kids?” That’s how dim-witted Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins) pitches his idea for a new toy to the board at Hudsucker Industries. Inspired by his stupidy (and desperate to crash the company stock) the board unwittingly signs off on the year’s biggest craze: the hula hoop. A killer cast including Paul Newman, John Mahoney and Steve Buscemi (yes, it’s by the Coen brothers) create some of the most memorable, if cartoonish, characters you’ll ever see on film.
