Movie of the Week Part II: Stranger Than Fiction

I don’t think I will ever be able to accept Will Ferrell (Harold Crick) as a serious actor

Not that this was a serious movie because it was a comedy.

It’s not because I don’t think he’s a good actor because he is.

But there were stretches during this movie where I thought to myself that this feels like a great Saturday Night Live sketch.

Or maybe SNL is that bad that I’m thinking of ways to make it better during my not watching SNL time?

I feel the same way about Mike Myers.

Anyway, this was a good movie. Not great. Cute even.

I still don’t know how I feel about the end though. I kinda wanted it to end the way it was intended to end* but Kay Eiffel’s (Emma Thompson) reasoning about her book’s ending (and the movie as a whole) was true so what does that say about me as a person?

* This will make sense when you see the movie.
