As far as Will Ferrell goes, this is an utterly fantastic film and easily one of my favorite films of all time. Harold Crick is your average mid-thirties IRS agent workaholic who lives his life to a science, going so far as to count his steps and his toothbrush strokes. After he begins hearing a voice that sounds like someone narrating his life, Crick discovers that he is actually a character in a story — and that the story's author, who also exists in-universe, has built her career on killing off her characters. This movie definitely stretches the boundaries of "comedy," because the few moments of overt humor actually seem to make the surrounding drama even more depressing.
