There are times when you watch a trailor of the movie.. connect and sit to watch the movie.. and then as the story unfolds.. you are drawn into the world created therein.. and by the end of the movie.. you gasp and think.. why didnt i ever hear about or get to watch this movie before.. Stranger than Fiction was one such experience for me..
And Lo Behold.. i watched another movie.. , which took me through the same journey as before… and more interesting was a connection between the movie, which i realised later.. both the movies had the same writer.. Zach Helm.. (Both movies also had Dustin Hoffman, whose characters had the wittiest dialogues)
So incase you are a sucker for fanasty movies like me, which revolve around children and ALL THE CRAZY STUFF DREAMS are made of (literally), then you might enjoy this movie..

Henry Weston: Extra hot dogs…
Mr. Edward Magorium: Yes, but why?
Henry Weston: In case you drop a couple.
Mr. Edward Magorium: What kind of insufferable fool drops a hot dog?
Henry Weston: Anything can happen, sir.
Mr. Edward Magorium: Anything can happen. How absolutely true. You’re exactly the mutant I’m looking for! You’re hired.
