Still shot from the movie: Stranger Than Fiction.

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.

Why Is Stranger Than Fiction Rated PG-13?


Harold’s routine life turns topsy-turvy when he is sent to audit a young baker and he finds himself fantasizing about her naked body. Later they sleep together and are repetitively shown in bed. Meanwhile, the chain-smoking Kay Eiffel turns to alcohol while visualizing the death of her seemingly fictitious character. A bus accident results in serious injuries and blood-splattered pavement is shown. The script contains brief profanities as well as a sexual expletive and male buttock nudity portrayed in a non-sexual context.
