I didn't get the wit in this movie. To me, it was funny, but not FUNNY. Will Ferrell's acting is on the juvenile side like it's his first acting job. I didn't care for it, but I liked the storyline.

Painful to watch, the story is about a "man" who doesn't know he is a made up character in a neurotic, egomaniac author's mind, and has no interactive existence with reality. This film shows him in a real world and then goes to intense and acutely observed personal interaction with the other characters and all the time you know is he is non-existent (in the script)-that's painful. Requires a lot of persistence in the viewer. But you get bang up acting (with a fine director) from the author (Emma Thompson looking ghastly and convincing); her keeper, Queen Latifah, looking like a gorgeous African ninja and being a mentor for a nut suffering from writer's block; to an arrogant and irritating professor (how well we know the type)in Dustin Hoffman's implacable "expert" opinions. As for Maggie, she is a revelation; her character starts as an Earth Mother inspired purveyor of baked goods to the needy, and dogmatic in opinion but halfway in becomes a charming Earth Kitten, who a guy could fall in love with in a New York minute. How does she do that?
Will's work mate is a great guy, his co-workers in the cattle pen office setting are suitably loose and cynical; you recognize everyone, even the extras at his bus stop. This is real observation of a high order, folks. Will Ferrell is superb in his role, taking this rollercoaster of an existentialist ride like a champion, and, yes, pulling you along kicking and screaming with him. How did he do that?
