Strange Friction

The movie Stranger Than Fiction was okay, but not really that impressive.  I was expecting it to be better, because the idea is so clever.  It's about a guy who can hear a woman's voice narrating his life.  It turns out the woman is writing a book, and the guy is the main character of the book, but he is actually a real guy.


The thing that bugged me is that it never explained how this phenomenon was possible.  Sure it's a fictional movie, and they think they don't need to explain why, but I need to know these things.  Did the woman actually create this guy's existence, or did she just happen to come up with a character who happened to be real already?  And what made it possible for the man to hear the lady narrating?

When the guy, played by Will Ferrill, showed up to the author's office to tell her he was real, she was in shock.  This was expected, but the assistant, played by Queen Latifah, was not at all shocked.  She acted like this was a normal everyday occurrence.  Well I have just one thing to tell you lady... It's not.

I have not seen this movie, but was a little intrigued by it. Fun to read your comments. BTW: I visited your page through a link from my page. Just in case you're wondering when you check your "reports". Hope you made it back to New York safely! :)

As your dear aunt, I must say that your blog is great and very entertaining. I agree that it was weird that he could hear her narrating his life and I never quite figured what was real.

I thought this movie was very interesting. It was pretty good, but weird too.

I personally liked this movie very much. When I first watched the previews, I thought it was going to be aimed only towards being funny, but they had very deep love story inside of it. To me, it was a great movie.
