Did You Know?


In "Tombstone" (1993), Val Kilmer portrayed Doc Holliday whose famous catchphrase in that film was "I'm your Huckleberry." Which is often mistakenly explained as a reference to the character of Huckleberry Finn as written by Mark Twain, whom Kilmer portrays in this film. It is actually a period idiom. "Being huckleberry for one's persimmon", meaning being just above other one's abilities, they way a huckleberry is more astringent than a persimmon. See more »


Someone who is trying to act as cool as Huckleberry Finn is trying to act wouldn't let Tom Sawyer call him "Hucky"; adding the suffix -y or -ie to a name is a term of endearment for a young child, not a cool dude. See more »

not the best but...
28 June 2015 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

maybe, it is not the most inspired adaptation. but it is nice, seductive, cool and funny. and after so many adaptation, front to high expectations, it has the great virtue to be good occasion to remind the atmosphere of a classic. only sin - Val Kilmer as Mark Twain. too much make-up and a too strange performance. but that is only a small detail. an easy film who has the flavor of classic novel. and that is enough for good entertainment. inspired option for the lead characters for the image level, decent performances, beautiful images. and a film not for high expectations but for fun. version for a new generation, it preserves the spirit of original work. and that fact is real important. the others - only few details.
