Stranger than Fiction
This is my favorite Will Ferrell movie of all time. It’s a shame he hasn’t dabbled back to these kinds of movies since. An author famous for killing off her characters is writing about a bland man named Harold Crick. It turns out, Harold Crick is an actual person, and fantasy and reality weave together as the author dictates Harold’s actions. It’s wonderful, and the cast is amazing.
Threading similar storylines with Stranger Than Fiction, Ruby Sparks has an author write about Ruby – and she materializes in front of him! A figment of his imagination has come to life and he sees how far he can go before his reality comes crashing towards him. I did like this movie, Paul Dano was fantastic.
Stuck in Love
This movie is about a family of authors and how they navigate through life and their careers. It definitely has its charms, and it’s a light flick that’s very much enjoyable.
