Stranger than Fiction

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For all of the talent that Saturday Night Live has had over the years, they’ve turned out some of the funnier comedian/actors in the last half century. Names like Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers and Chris Rock are all common place to us and thanks to this little show these guys...

  • Conclusion: Stranger than Fiction is a bizarre yet surprisingly endearing film. Will Ferrell really is a revelation here, as he steps outside his normal routine of portraying characters who routinely behave like twelve-year-olds in grown-up bodies.

Stranger Than Fiction (2006)

6 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Will Ferrell has never struck me as much of a chameleon as an actor. His performances tend to always fall into the over-the-top category with his hyped up and larger than life screen persona. So, it's a true surprise to find him in Stranger than Fiction , a movie that features Mr.

  • Conclusion: 'Stranger Than Fiction' is a smart, intriguing and often moving comedy that is full of surprises, warm characters and genuine insight into the human condition. I loved it. This Blu-ray release supports the film well, with a good transfer and fitting soundtrack, and a solid (if still somewhat sparse)...

10 November 2006
  • Excerpt: This is a movie about Harold Crick. Harold is good at many things. He excels at his job. He's a whiz with numbers. He's not very good at life. This is a movie about Harold Crick getting better at life by facing death, a conceit used almost to the point of exhaustion by other films, but revitalized...

Stranger Than Fiction

AV Club
9 November 2006
  • Excerpt: In every crude Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler movie, the comedians briefly have to stop being funny and recognize that their wacky behavior (compulsively lying, say, or manipulating time with a remote control) is hurting their generic family.

Review: ‘Stranger Than Fiction’

Variety
12 September 2006
  • Summary: The oft-examined intersections of reality and fantasy get a thorough workout in "Stranger Than Fiction." This first comedy from Marc Forster sometimes becomes too self-consciously clever, but it remains inventive, features fine performances, and offers enough to enjoy and dispute to make it a good...

  • Excerpt: Skrivkramp är ett ständigt återkommande tema på bioduken. Vem minns inte Jack Nicholson i ”The Shining” som kanaliserade frustrationen till dårskap. Eller varför inte Nicolas Cage som bröderna Kaufman i ”Adaptation” vars slut skrev sig själv mitt framför publiken.

Söt romans i lagom klurig metafilm

21 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Att exakt genrebestämma Stranger than fiction vore olyckligt, eftersom hela filmen kretsar kring just detta: är berättelsen om den hårt inrutade skattekontrollanten Harold Crick en tragedi eller komedi? Måste han dö på slutet eller finner han kärleken och lever lycklig i alla sina dagar?
