Stranger than Fiction (2006)
Will Ferrell plays a relatively muted role as a tax auditor who hears a narrative to his life. Why? Because he’s a character from a book. Or is he? And if he is, then who is writing his fate? Stranger than Fiction manages to avoid bogging itself down in pseudo-philosophy and concentrate on being a light-hearted, intelligent comedy. And there aren’t many Will Ferrell films you could say that about.
