Emma Thompson or Hugh Grant?I didn’t realise until last night just how much Emma Thompson looks like Hugh Grant.

Supremely confident in my celeb looky-likey spotting skills, I ran the photo to the right through My Heritage for scientific proof. It however, thinks she looks like Sugar Ray Leonard (62%), Buzz Aldrin (58%) and Vin Diesel (56%). Oh well.

So the film, Stranger Than Fiction then…

If you’re expecting a Will Ferrell movie that contains gratuatious tits. This isn’t it (sadly).

It’s basically Will Ferrell’s attempt at a Truman Show style film. Except he’s trapped in a book about his life. Ferrell’s not exactly got great acting skills and can’t quite pull it off. Saying that, it’s still a reasonable watch. More due to Maggie Gyllenhaal though – because she is just soooo incredibly cute. Gooood morrrrrrnin’.

Oh, and without giving anything away… if Eiffel’s books were real, they would have possibly the crappest most dull endings…

  1. Again another spot on review that sums up what the film was about and how good it was in about a tenth of the words I would have used.
    Now that you say it Emma Thompson does look scarily like hugh grant…I have a sudden urge to punch her in her smug arogant posh tofty face.
    I have to admit that her books did seem a touch on the dull side, I can just picture comic book guy from the simpsons “worst ending ever!”
    But like you said, Maggie Gyllenhaal…mmmmmmm nice! I’ve always rather liked her.
