Stranger Than Fiction is in my top 10 all-time favorite movies list. Some people think I’m crazy that I love it so much, but I just feel that this story is completely original, the cast is stellar, and Ferrel is funny, but by playing the “straight man”, as opposed to the over-the-top funny that he is in many movies.
Specific things I love about this movie:
- That his wristwatch keeps trying to communicate with him and control his life.
- Every single conversation Ferrel has with Hoffman.
- The unlikely love affair between Ferrel and Gyllenhall.
- The “flours”. You’ll just have to watch it to know what I mean.
