Karen Effiel is an author writing her latest novel about an isolated man named Harold Crick. What she doesn't know is that her fictionalized character is real. The real Harold Crick is an IRS agent who has lived a dull existence and one day begins to hear Karen's voice as she narrates what she puts on paper to what Harold has and is doing. Because of this Harold enlists the help of a literary professor to find out what is happening and ends up changing things about his life including beginning a relationship with his IRS client, a government-hating bakery owner named Ana Pascal. Harold, however, finds trouble when he hears that Karen plans to kill him.

  • A very different type of movie, but an absolute CRACKER, how the movie pieced together bit by bit until the conclusion was brilliant

  • It took me a while to get into this movie. But after a while, when he falls in love, and the link between himself and the writer who, coincidently, writes his story. He is supposed to die and nearly did. The film is a bit disjointed but finally get its act together.

  • Brilliant....at first you think...What's this....hang in there...it evolves. Very unusual. Great cast. Best movie I have enjoyed from Qickflix over the past year.

  • Turned it off after 20 mins.......sooooooo slow and boring without a laugh!

  • The acting was great. Will Farrel does a great job and so does Emma Thompson, Queen Latifah, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. All the characters worked well together and it turned out really well. I didn't really listen for the soundtrack so I don't remember if it was good or not, but it definitely wasn't horrible. The story line is somewhat simple, but original and well done.
