It's kind of an awesome movie.

"See, that's the part I don't get, Craig. I mean, you're cool, you're smart, you're talented. You have a family that loves you. You know what I would do just to be you, for just a day?"

Despite the fact that most critics were underwhelmed with It's Kind of a Funny Story, I found myself liking the movie. It's sort of a feel-good flick, despite being set in a mental hospital. Imagine a lighthearted version Girl, Interrupted with more teen angst (in a good way).

The story's about a teenage boy who's burnt out on pressure from parents, school, and his peers, exhausted, and contemplating suicide. He checks himself into a mental health clinic hoping for some kind of a quick fix, but instead has to spend five days in the adult ward (the youth ward is temporarily closed). He meets the requisite cast of oddball patients (including Zach Galifianakis), he grows close to the requisite love interest triangle (Emma Roberts & Zoe Kravitz), and he learns the requisite lessons about himself and life. 

So yeah, this isn't exactly a revolutionary movie. I enjoyed it, though. Keir Gilchrist is a likable young actor, and Galifianakis keeps thing from getting too serious with his quasi- mentor character. The young cast gives solid performances, as well (I've developed quite the massive crush on Zoe Kravitz, I hope she sticks around the movie biz for a long time to come).

All in all, not a bad movie to spend a couple of hours with. It leaves you in a positive mood, and the soundtrack is pretty rockin', too.

Review 1#: Worse than the book. but good

I have read the book twice now. it is my favorite book of all time. The movie followed the book in major aspects but leaves out so much of which I loved in the book. when the book had more of a down the earth feeling and felt good. The Movie cut out scenes that answers why Craig is depressed. the book had Craig in so many situations and the movie was just a ''I want the girl but I can't" my all time least favorite thing was instead of actually having Craig and his friends and family's stuff fan out. he just shows it skimmed over mid-movie. it felt rushed and gross.

um no.... so much no....

This is absolutely not how the hospital works. They would NEVER EVER EVER put teens with adults EVER if the teen floor is closed they transfer you to a different hospital most ERS dont even have a adolescent phyc ward. so they do whats called a bed search in the mean time you stay in the ER. if they cant transfer you (Never happens) but lets say they cant than you are put with the little kids if the teen floor is closed. ive been to the mental hospital quit a few times as a teen. also the minute you say your suicidal you are admitted especial as a minor you would not need to convene the doctor. you would be placed on a 5150 hold 3day hold once the hold expires they can put you on another 5150 then a 5250 7 day hold then a 30day so total time they can keep you is 1.5 months most of the time you spend 5-7 days in the hospital. i just couldnt enjoy this movie with so many inaccuracy
