We went to see this movie tonight. From the trailer, I thought the premise sounded interesting, though Jesse and I have seen a number of movies this year with really interesting or funny sounding premises that just fell short (like this one ). Tonight, I am happy to report that Stranger than Fiction did not disappoint. In fact, I liked it so much more than I thought I would. It was funny and quirky and suspenseful and surprising and sweet. Good job, Will Ferrell. I didn't think you had it in you.
