I may have to have the Cone of Silence attached permanently to my head where TV shows are concerned. I saw nothing in real time last night because I was at another movie screening, this one for ''Stranger Than Fiction,'' the Will Ferrell-Emma Thompson comedy.
After sitting unhappily through ''Running With Scissors,'' I was relieved to find ''Stranger Than Fiction'' more enjoyable. I still have to give it more thought before writing a review, and I am not convinced that the ending works. But the movie has enough to recommend it -- including a decent, non-manic performance by Ferrell.
