intense, intricate intellectualism and warm, grounded, human emotion."
Read her full take on the film in her piece titled, Counting
Down the Best Films of 2006: No. 4, Stranger Than Fiction.
Film.com's Ethan Morris states that "Ferrell delivers a 'straight
man' comedic performance that would make Bud Abbott proud" in his piece
Did He Know ... Stranger Than Fiction Not Just Another Ferrell Farce.
Rolling Stone's Peter Travers gives Fiction 3 out of 4
stars, and says that, "This is a Ferrell you've never seen before,
nailing a role that calls for breakneck humor in the final race against
the clock and touching gravity in the love scenes with Gyllenhaal."
