It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010)

It's Kind of a Funny Story

Directors: Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck

Writers: Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck

(Based on a novel by Ned Vizzini)

I know it is an easy thing to say and one that I am sure has been said in 100 different reviews but the title is very appropriate in describing this movie.  Nothing especially bad but a little been there done that feeling.  Another movie about a young middle aged teen being depressed who meets a cute quirky girl and they bond over their “problems” and indie bands.

I was impressed with Galifianakis.  The movie is mistakenly marketed focusing on the humor but Galifianakis is not really the comic relief in the movie and its good to see him stretch and act in a way I haven’t seen before.  I look forward to him getting larger variety of roles.
