Loved it!

If you love Charlie Kaufman scripts such as Being John Malkovich or Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind, you'll absolutely love this quirky dramady style film. Just don't go in expecting a typical Will Ferrell comedy. Heck, don't go in expecting any comedy at all, although there's several great funny scenes. The part where he finds out he is going to die (don't worry, its not a plot spoiler, it h... read more

Like all of the recent great comedy actors, Will Ferrell took this role to showcase his talent as a true actor. What was Eternal Sunshine for Jim Carey and Punch Drunk Love for Adam Sandler, Stranger than Fiction followed suit for Ferrell with this light hearted drama. Will Ferrell is brilliant in his role as a quirky character living his life unsuspectingly inside a novel. His role opposite Maggi... read more

It's strange alright. It's been a few hours since I've watched it and I still can't figure out what to make of it (not as in confusion, just unsure how it made me feel). It's not that I didn't enjoy it but I think a part of me feels that not only was it pointless but at times that it was almost silly. In saying that, I'd still recommend it.

I've also come to expect Will Ferrell to d... read more

"I watched this movie in early 20s and thought it was so boring. Today, in my mid 20s, I watched it again and realized how simple and charming it really is. The story progresses in a very interesting and rather clever way making it hard to guess the ending but is engrossing and characters are charming and I loved them. We have a square Howard, a groovy hippie inspired heroine, a zany writer with a punctual secretary and hoffman is here, playing a mentor so the whole dimension is very interestin"

"Stranger Side A funny little heart in a funny little box, Never take it out 'cos it might get dropped, Bottle up and hide tell a little lie, If you must, if you must , See the crooked man try and walk a crooked mile, See the crooked lady with her crooked little smile, They see us as they pass and they don't know what they make of us, To make of us. 'Cos you and I, you and I, you and I, We see a stranger side of things, You and I, you and I, you and I, We dream a stranger kind"
