  • Summary: The high concept of Stranger than Fiction is excellent, but the execution is oftentimes tedious, resulting in big sections of the plot and film that drag. Ferrell's serious portrayal is admirable, but the film doesn't have the hefty script to back up its lofty premise.

"Stranger Than Fiction" by Yojimbo

FilmCrave
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: IRS auditor Harold Crick discovers that he is the leading character of a novel in progress written by an author who is famous for killing off her heroes. I was quite taken with the idea behind this film; enough for me to get past the presence of Will Ferrell, an actor I detest. The beginning of the film lived up to my leap of faith, presenting what seemed to be a clever, literary story in the vein of Charlie Kaufman's work, complete with some nice Eternal Sunshine-style...

  • Excerpt: Deze film is perfect als je net wat meer wilt dan een romantische komedie onder een dekentje op de bank. Een simpel verhaal met een twist. Niet ijzersterk of onvergetelijk maar een fijn vertoeven.

  • Excerpt: Bijzondere film. Ik vond hem zeer de moeite waard. Origineel script. Het klokje gaat anders lopen en dan verandert alles in het leven van iemand die alles in rituelen deed en niet om kon springen met verandering. Bijzondere toch wel filmhuis-achtige film!

Excellent film with great acting and a great picture

  • Excerpt: The title basically says it. I'm not going to give a synopsis of the movie, instead I am going to tell you why I enjoyed it and why I think you will. Movie: The movie itself presents a great story full of character and charisma. It presents unusual situations and relationships and plays them out. It's both quirky and fun but also a little deep.

  • Summary: Overall, the quirkiness of "Stranger than Fiction" makes for an enjoyable stroll, though I felt the relationships formed were often inexplicable. It's not a good sign when a wristwatch is my favorite character.

  • Excerpt: Mooie film met een bijzonder plot en goede acteurs, met name Ferrel (ditmaal niet "getypecast" als malloot). Letterlijk een verhaal in een verhaal. Tot het eind geboeid gekeken. Zeer de moeite waard!

The most underrated movie of 2006

  • Excerpt: This movie to me was perfect. It had the perfect cast, story ending, i loved every bit of it! Will Ferrel can definately show range and take a more dramatic role and Emma Thompson is brilliant. The PQ was clear and has some great details during close-ups, colors look flushed but i think it fits that dull mood during the movie. I didn't notice grain or anything distracting.
