Whole Wide World

Last weekend Ryan and I watched Stranger than Fiction. I must say, we were pleasantly surprised. First of all, it was nice just to see Will Farrel not in a slapstick comedy. Also, I found a few new favorites from it. It actually started off a little slow, but by the end we found it quite charming. It wasn't amazing, but you know, if it's a the Redbox or something....

Anyway, if you think you're going to watch it sometime, maybe don't watch these clips, you should just wait for the movie (I love not knowing anything about a movie before I watch it). But in this first one, I found a new favorite song - it has the cutest lyrics.

(Background if you want it - Will Farrel is a very reserved guy who leads a really monotonous life, and finally decides to really start living. One thing he'd always wanted to do was learn to play the guitar, so he has just started to. This is the scene where Maggie Gyllenhal first realizes she's falling for him.)

Hi Jen! It's the Fords(Mandy)! I love your blogspot-that one baby story totally had me crying! I was wondering what your new address is-could you send it to me?

Very good movie. I agree it was a little slow at the start, but I think that was because it took me a little while to realize that Will's character wasn't going to run down the street streaking.
