Stranger Than Fiction Indeed

We just finished watching the Will Ferrell movie "Stranger Than Fiction." It was yet another Hollywood film that was done a disservice by being marketed as a broad comedy. Certainly it was amusing, but only in a "Being John Malkovich"-- "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" sort of way. For the record, I liked all three films immensely.

What we thought was strange-- or at the very least, stranger than fiction-- is that Office Worker #4 (TJ Jagodoski) and Office Worker #5 (Peter Grosz) are the same two actors who appear on those very funny Sonic commercials together. Do they always get cast as a team or is it merely a coincidence? Strange, huh?

I found that movie very odd--but I also loved it--the theory and resolution was a welcome surprise with a good message. Will Ferrell can be versatile--a little. Hope you are having a great '08!

"Elf" will always be my favorite Will Ferrell movie.
