    No, not really. Not at all. This looks like a horror movie. Stranger than Fiction looks funny.

    The problem is that Jim Carrey is so stereotyped/typecast that even when he makes a 'serious' acting face, people may still subconsciously associate it with comedy which might hurt this movie's appeal.

    Also the memory of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin aka Batman on Ice will haunt Joel Schumacher forever.

    So if I make a movie about a guy with a chainsaw and hockey mask getting into hilarious perdicaments involving the killing of adults, it won't be plagerism?

    I guess the degree of similiarity between the two movies will be determined by which plot-line is given more emphasis: How his life is similiar to the book or the number 23 itself, and how he keeps 'finding' it everywhere.
