Stranger Than Fiction

Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) literally lives life by the numbers. But this IRS auditor is about to have his obsessively organized world turned upside down when his life somehow becomes linked to the fictional protagonist in a novelist's (Emma Thompson) new book. A clever script with solid performances makes for entertaining viewing, although there are a few reasons why this movie may not be a novel idea for younger teens and children.
