Stranger than Fiction is being marketed the same way, as a wacky comedy (the DVD. I'm not sure how it was promoted in theaters). And it's not. Will Ferrell did the more serious role very well in that movie. lmao @ martin getting fucking 50 million a movie. And how much you get paid for movies is directly related to the class system. Carrey has been A-List for years. People are willing to spend money on him because they know he's going to sell. He has power.
