It's not schizophrenia! I just hear a voice in my head.

If you haven't had a chance to watch the film "Stranger Than Fiction" then you're in luck; it just came out on DVD.

If you're one of those people that would rather pluck out your eyes that watch a Will Ferrell movie then I'd like to say you'd be making a mistake in this case. Ferrell plays his IRS Agent character at a very low key. There's no running around in his underwear, no yelling and very little to connect him to his established drunken frat boy screen persona.


Couple that with some very good direction, a smart script utilizing some very dry humor and some excellent performances by Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Queen Latifah and you get a pretty damn* good movie.

So you're saying it is better than Junior?

Dude-

It's a great movie. Seriously.

Not as good as Junior. But up there.

I missed this one, but I did want to see it! I'm feeling crappy today, so maybe I'll force snabby to rent it for me....
