Last night, we rented Stranger Than Fiction. During the film, I couldn’t help but say to myself over and over again, “This is a great film.” There was no unnecessary sex, viloence, swearing, or filth. There WAS, a nice clean simple story of a man discovering that he was missing something and he wanted more.
I’m no movie critic. But I do love a good moving picture. The wife and I have spent years building our movie library and when I say, “this one’s worth buying,” I mean it’s a good one. Let me tell you, this one’s worth buying.
Will Ferrell stars as Harold Crick, a slightly OCD IRS agent who counts everything. Maggie Gyllenhaal co-stars as Ana Pascal, the free spirit bakery owner who steals Harold’s heart. Who would have thought that a tatooed anti-government bakery owner would fall in love with an OCD IRS agent?
I will tell you that last night I told the wife that I saw a little of us in Harold and Ana. If you didn’t know yet, I’ll tell you a secret. I’m a little OCD. Additionally, the wife is a semi-free spirit, <whisper>and she has a tatoo.</whisper>
You’ll thank me.
