Some bad acting, but it does not ruin this film.
30 June 2003 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Stranger Than Fiction is aptly title. It is an outstanding movie with a little bad acting, but it is good enough to keep from ruining the movie. It is a great entertaining movie with more twists than a medium sized roller coaster. Sometimes the actors in the movie will irritate you with their constant screaming about something they just did, when they are in some kind of private place. It is a pretty funny movie. I saw it on TV and the information said it was a Thriller with lots of plot twists. But they did not say how extremely funny this movie really is. If you love thrillers, and spur of the moment type comedy, you will love this movie. 8/10
