Will Farrell plays Harold Click, an obsessive compulsive mild-mannered IRS agent, whose life is dictated by an author writing her latest novel. The author’s voice narrates Click’s life and he is the only one who hears the voice. The narrator foreshadow’s and reveals that Click’s death is iminent which sends Click seeking for help to find out if this story is an actual tragedy or a comedy.
Unlike his usual over-the-top characters, Farrell’s character is simple and naive. Farrell’s facial expression and body language drives the comedy which aren’t knee-slappers but will keep you entertained.
