A very good film. A great performance by Will Ferell. So different than the Will Ferell we know in movies like Anchorman and Blades of Glory. Emma Thompson was very funny, Queen Latifeh was good, Dustin Hoffman was very good, an excellent script by Zach Helm and great directing by Marc Forester
good movie - works better as a renter than on the big screen. Ferrell and Hoffman are great. It`s funny a times, really dramatic the next. Overall, not-a-bad flick.
Slow, Boring.. DVD material
it was good
Very nice story, amusing - and it has a nice sentiment about it - where the main character Will really learns things about himself all because of the writer on what she was planning. I highly reccommend this movie!
I loved this movie. It was so creative and I loved how it was tied up in the end. I was very impressed with Will Ferrel. I thought he was great. I loved how the executed the plot line so that you knew what would happen maybe but didn`t know how. And the last line just amazed me.
Was a tad disappinted. I thought Ferrell was actually quite good and liked the relationship between him and Gyllenhaal, and the premise was amusing, but in the end it felt like a weak Charlie Kaufman script. The point of the film (live your life) is well meaning, but Kaufman probably would have put more into it, making it resonate more. The movie was relying more on the premise than any of the feelings in it. I did enjoy it, but I don`t think I`ll be visiting it again.
It was an ok movie... nothing crazy but not horrible either! It was a little slow... something I would rather rent and watch it at home!
Good movie....Will Farrell was great, but for me, the most enjoyment from this movie came from the amazing performance by Emma Thompson...what an actress!
it wasn`t a bad movie just a little slow. Not his best movie.
absolutely horrible...as a middle aged movie lover I am easy to please and love the movies....however this was just to impossible not to comment on
Great movie! It was smart and clever and performed with such great talent. My family and I really enjoyed it! What a great concept.
worse movie ever, boooring
What a great movie! Writing was fantastic, characters were all very different with a unique voice but were able to compliment each other beautifully. All performances were fantastic. Note to self Will.. you can stand still and be funny too! Complete character piece..so if you need action to enjoy a movie.. stay away.
it`s ok, very artsy. nothing really great about it. some parts were kinda funny but not really.
loved it! The pacing seems a bit off but that`s what made it so great. Chemistry btw Maggie and Will lacking it though. Overall, great concept and good movie.
A little boring at times but overall a great film.
it was the best movie in the world
Briliant concept, execution was just OK .... ending was sort of predictable .... and felt it was dragging a bit towards the end. BTW, don`t you think Will Ferrel`s wearing too much eye-liner??? or it`s just me? p.s. loved Maggine G, great acting from her! Not sure what`s Queen Latifa doing in it .... though I like her.
Decent film, fairly funny and pretty well done. I`d give it a 7.5/10
Was a good movie, a little slow at times, but overall, good. Was a thinker, somewhat predictable, and funny. Makes me examine my own life somewhat. Great cast, esp. Emma Thompson! Very "quiet" movie, and different. Nice break from typical Hollywood movies!
Not a movie for mainstream theatres ... More of a hi-brow, book club theatre setting! 2 out of 5 starrs.
Walked out in the first 45 minutes after realizing that NOTHING funny was remotely going to happen......DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS ONE..........in or out of theatres!!
This movie is alright. It`s very insightful, not something you`d expect from Will Ferrell. Those who have watched it and thought it sucked were probably expecting a little more comedy but it`s a thinking movie. It`s deep. Queen Latifah is horrible.
We walked out in 45 minutes and saw The Prestige instead! Stay away from this one unless you need to take a long nap!
an amazingly written book/movie.
It was alright, definitely not something worth paying $15 for, wait for it to come on DVD people.
Oh I got it! I got that it was brutal! Easily the worst movie I have ever seen at a theatre.
VERY BORING!.....And I AM a smart person, sorry! Do NOT waste your money!
Hilarious and thoughtful. Amazing performances by an all-star cast!5*
This movie was soooo boring, for 2 hours I sat and waited for something to happen. If you watch the first 20 minutes of the film, thats all you need to see, the rest is usless dribble. I love most Will Ferrel Movies but this was really bad.
Amazingly written. Will Farrel was quite a surprise, and delivered a great performance. See it! Its one of the best movies i`ve seen all year. Emma Thompson was great!
Boring!A waste of time. I regreat not walking out and ask for my money back.
Funny, Fun and 100% different than any movie you`ve ever seen! 5*
Extremely fun for anyone intelligent or even moderatley intelligent. This movie is genius and it takes some intelligence to recognize it, but it is truly not about intelligence; it is about human nature and the entire cast does an amazing job of conveying their emotions and creating some laughs in Stranger Than Fiction. One of the best movies of the year!
it was freekin hilarious but ith a sweet meaningful side to it. a great one to watc with friends or family, 2 thumbs up!!!
EXTREMELY BORING! Absolutely not the movie that I thought that it would be. I went into the movie knowing that this movie wasn`t a comedy like Will Ferrell movie`s usually are, so I wasn`t surprised when it wasn`t funny. I just found it incredibly boring and was waiting for a point and was very disappointed when there wasn`t one. Couldn`t wait for the movie to end!
A delightful movie with a deeper message....aren`t we all characters in the big script?
Funny and thoughtful. Little did I know I would enjoy this movie so much. Well done.
A amazing movie! If you don`t like drama/comedies you won`t like it, but it is once again a great role for Will ferrell ( not to mention the rest of the stellar cast) that is similiar to his movies: Melinda and Melinda and Winter Passing. Some people expect talledega nights or anchor man when they are going to see this, but it is totally different and even better! 5*
More romantic comedy than I would have liked, but still some really funny moments.
Not for the unintelligent people! If you don`t get this movie, chances are you`re not very smart. Sorry!
It wasn`t funny at all... Very dull and boring movie. Not a comedy...
very good, not your typical Will Farrell movie
Some funny moments, but the rest of it was just dull. I was expecting it to be more humorous.
