Movie Review by Movie Addict
September 23rd, 2007

I don't need a nicotine patch. I smoke cigarettes.

This film is on my list of recommendations from a friend, else I would not suffer through Will Ferrell.

Of course this film had to end the way it did. If not, then all those existential musings of the author would not mean much. Slightly sappy, but nonetheless thoughtful, it is designed to make you appreciate the little things in your otherwise meaningless existence.

Is your life a comedy or a tragedy? Crick (Will Ferrell) tries to answer that question put to him by Professor Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman). Can a cookie from Ana (Maggie Gyllenhaal) change your life from black to white? I know she can change my life!

Author Kay Eiffel (Emma Thompson) realizes her life is lonely, as lonely as her character, and decides to make a change. She went for "good," not "great." Is that what it is all about? We can achieve "good" in our lives, but to achieve "great," we must eschew the sappy and mundane feelings?

This movie gives you something to think about as you try to fit your life into Cricks.
