Product Description

Amazon.ca

When 16-year-old Craig (Keir Gilchrist, The United States of Tara) gets admitted to a psychiatric ward, he's hoping for a quick fix for his suicidal impulses--but then he learns he can't leave for five days… which turn out to be the most transformative days of his life. It's Kind of a Funny Story takes a fairly thread-worn premise--that the mentally disturbed have life lessons to offer the supposedly sane--and breathes some fresh life into it with generous writing and solid performances. Craig's most important relationship is with Bobby (Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover), a troubled father who transfers some parental affection to Craig; the conversations between the two of them are above and away the heart of the movie--a genuine and nuanced portrait of two people grappling with depression and neurosis. Standup comedian Galifianakis is turning into one of those character actors who give every movie they're in a boost; his performance here is honest, sensitive, and without a shred of self-pity or pandering. The rest of the movie is uneven--a romance with a self-cutting young girl (Emma Roberts, Nancy Drew) is pleasant but bland, and some therapy scenes are obligatorily heartening (though again, elevated by the acting, in this case Viola Davis, Doubt)--but the relationship between Bobby and Craig makes the whole movie well worth watching. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
This movie takes a humorous look at mental illness in its varying degrees and relationships based on mutual experiences with mental illness. The central character is kind of boring and Emma Roberts is very irritating, but Zach G. (aside from having a last name that is impossible to spell) totally steals the show. He has crazy, lovely, frightening and wise down to a science and demonstrates it here. It is funny, but it is also true.

The movie is like One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest minus Jack's insane personality and the grim outlook on life. But certainly worth the hour or two it takes to watch.

This is a very good film with some thought provoking points. I very much enjoyed it, but it loses a star for being misleading in title, cover images and category. It is not a comedy. But it is good.
