We rented Stranger Than Fiction, starring Will Ferrell, Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, and Queen Latifah (and the two guys from the Sonic Commercials, which we love). Lori and I both thought it was a very good flick, especially for cuddling up on the couch together and enjoying. While one of us has always been a huge Will Ferrell fan, the other one of us has tended to look at his work with an intense lack of amusement. Is it possible to have a intense like of feeling? Anyways, I think the reason that she has felt that way is that is humor is often a bit on the nose and just not her taste. Well, being that this particular flick is falls more on the dramatic side and less on the comedic side, we were both pleasantly surprised by our enjoyment of this night’s rental.
If I was giving out stars, this would rank probably 4.5 out of 5 stars. ‘
Just in case you missed the previews, the basic premise is that the main character, Harold Crick (Will Ferrell), begins to hear his life being narrated. Things turn interesting when the “Little does he know” moment hits and he becomes aware of his “imminent death”.
I would recommend it.
