"An IRS auditor suddenly finds himself the subject of narration only he can hear: narration that begins to affect his entire life, from his work, to his love-interest, to his death."

An off-beat comedy (along the lines of a lite Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind) starring Will Ferrell, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Queen Latifah, none of whom are on top ten list of favourite actors, and Maggie Gyllenhaal (Secretary).

I was pleasantly surprised by this film, which isn't really a comedy and follows Will Ferrell's character towards his impending and unavoidable death. No car chases, explosions or fancy special effects, just a gentle character based film that's well worth a few hours of your time.

7.5/10
