MOVIE:  Stranger Than Fiction

NUTSHELL:  A lonely I.R.S. auditor hears an author who is narrating his life announce his imminent death.

GOOD THINGS:  Maggie Gyllenhaal, Will Ferrell, Tony Hale, a sweet fluffy script

BAD THINGS:  A feral Emma Thompson spitting into napkins? WTF?

FEATURES:  Queen Latifah, Monty Python, Tom Hulce, Kristin Chenoweth on Book Talk (?!)

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Dustin Hoffman always makes me nervous. I don’t know; HE JUST DOES!

NOTABLE:  You gotta love filmmakers who make a film where the message that art is not very important in the larger scheme of things is directly stated instead of being a sad byproduct of the film’s poor quality.

BEST PART:  Will Ferrell’s performance is I guess what I remember most about this movie.

BEST LINE:  King of the lanes?

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
