"well it is safe to say that I survived this movie but I didnt quite like it all that much. there were things about it that were just too blah. Dina Meyer(Starship Troopers, Johnny Mnemonic) is the hottie in this movie. Todd Field(Eyes Wide Shut, Twister) is the cool guy in this movie. Mackenzie Astin(Sean Astin's brother) is the crazy guy in this movie and Natasha Gregson Wagner(Modern Vampires, Another Day In Paradise) is the annoying one in this movie. Field has written a book called Stranger Than Fiction and he tells the tale to a man at a bar. Astin murders a gay police officer and things go downhill from there. It just spirals into twists that are far too perdictiable but some funny, like the hobo in the back of the car. The old lady had the funniest death of them all. If your a fan of any of the actors you should watch but if your not it's ok if you dont. Also that whole in different colors switch doesnt help at all"
Dina Meyer + Interesting Story = Gold

"Before I even knew what the film was about, I wanted to see it. i am a huge fan of the beautiful and talented Ms. Meyer and I make it a point to see all of her projects. After discovering what the film was about, I became even more interested in seeing it. I finally saw it, and it far surpassed my expectations. what can I say? I love darkly comedic films such as this, and although the film was obviously inspired by Tarantino and his imitators, it happens to come off as fresh and original. I was thouroughly entertained throughout the entire film and I was surprised by several of the plot twists. This film also had some great acting. Dina Meyer was, of course, superb. I was pleasantly surprised by both MacKenzie Astin and Todd Field. I had never heard of either of them, and I thought they both turned in fine performances. I was familiar with Natasha Gregson Wagner mainly from Modern Vampires (another great but not well known film) and I thought she was very impressive in ths film. The DVD itself is nothing to call home about. It is pretty Bare Bones and fullscreen to boot. However, I'm just happy to have this gem preserved on DVD and I will take what I can get.PS This movie had one of the coolest opening credit sequences I have seen in a while!"

"This is a great movie that I saw on cable and never had heard of it. It has a great storyline and lots and lots of unexpected happenings, which I love. All in all, I would say on a scale of 1-10, this is definitely at least an 8."
