A best-selling writer (Thompson) is plagued with writer's block and gains the assistance of a woman (Latifah) from her publisher. As they are plotting the end of her next novel, Harold Crick (Ferrell) begins hearing the narration as it happens. Frightened by his "imminent" death, Harold seeks the help of a local literary professor (Hoffman) and discovers who the person behind the voice is. He must race against the clock to convince the author to spare him while struggling to keep from going insane.
The concept itself was enough to make me sit through the film. Sure, I was a little leery but the wonderfully imaginative story will keep your attention regardless of what is going on around you. Best movie of 2006? I doubt it. I can tell you that it is definitely the most memorable. Do yourself a favor and rent Will Ferrell's best film to date.
