This is a dramatic fantasy, in the vein of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, where the fantasy is believable given the great acting, setting, and story. It's a touching, intelligent film that has some clichés (my wife predicted the protagonist's end), which I can imagine critics clawing into to rip it apart; but still, it worked for me.
Incidentally, there's a great scene where the protagonist plays a nice song on an acoustic guitar: (I'd Go The) Whole Wide World by Wreckless Eric, which was a hit in the seventies. I found the mp3 for it (I'm guessing it'll be inaccessible in a month, now that the movie is doing well and everyone will be googling it, like me), and the lyrics are available at the songwriter's website. It's a simple song: E and A. That's it. For the chorus, strum the E a bar longer than the rest of the song.
The cast of this film delivers an excellent story about illusions, love, and a journey to discovery. Personally, I really enjoyed this film.
1. Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is a tax man. As a matter of fact, he's the kind of serious tax man that the Beatles sang about:
"Now my advice for those who die, (Taxman!)
Declare the pennies on your eyes, (Taxman!)
`Cos I'm the Taxman."
2. Crick begins hearing a female voice in his head narrating his life, and starts to take it really seriously when she starts talking about impending doom.
3. You've heard that the two inevitable things are death and taxes
4. You may be half right
Will Ferrell is really good in this role as an ill-fated character, and gets good support from Maggie Gyllenhaal as a sassy baker, Dustin Hoffman as a literature professor and Emma Thompson as a famous writer. Queen Latifah is mostly under-utilized, but makes the most of her limited screen time anyway.
Recommended as a Sunday rental to go with muffins and cookies - milk optional.
Harold Crick: "This may sound like gibberish to you, but I think I'm in a tragedy."
The world inside worlds theme is not new or unique. See the film "The Thirteenth Floor" (1999) or read the book" Sophie's World: A Novel about the History of Philosophy" by Jostein Gaarder .However it is how the story is executed and the skill of the actors to involve us that makes this presentation excel.

Great movie. Not typical Will Ferrel movie but still funny and interesting plot.Published 4 months ago by K Pizzle for Shizzle
A bit of a departure from the standard Will ferrell role we are accustomed to. Nice performance by Dustin Hoffman. Definitely a recommended purchase.Published on Nov. 13 2013 by Caledon
Will Ferrel does such a good job playing this part, and its such a great idea for a plot line. It has so much to offer. Really one of my favorites.Published on Sept. 8 2013 by Reid Rufiange
