    Hardly. "I heart Huckabees" strikes me as a pretty awkward expression
    syntactically and semantically, no matter the alliteration.

    If you look at the title shots in the film and in the trailer, and look
    at the advertising spreads (even on the IMDB page), you'll see the title
    uses the heart icon. But you're right, the "textual" title in IMDB is
    different -- someone decided the heart icon couldn't be represented in
    text and so put "heart" in instead -- at least, everything seems to
    point to that in my mind.
