This trailer gives me some pause for General Over-Obviousness, but it’s also worth remembering how good Will Ferrell can be when he tunes the manic all the way down:

Stranger Than Fiction remains one of the real high points of his career, as a man who generates comedy simply by being battered by life (also, a crazed novelist played by Emma Thompson). Ferrell is good at making ordinary situations ridiculous, but he also has a real talent for spotlighting the ridiculousness of totally ordinary situations, too.
