It's Kind of a Funny Story

3 1/2 stars

Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think.

Craig is a high-school junior, in the gifted program, infatuated with his best friend's girl. When he realizes he's suicidal, he checks himself into the psychiatric ward of a hospital, thinking they'll do an observation, help him, and send him home in time for school the next day. Once in, however, he must stay for a week; the juvenile ward is being renovated, so he's in with adults as well as a few youths. Bobby, a man with a young daughter, shows him around; Craig notices Noelle, about his age. He tries to keep his friends from finding out where he is. Little things: he draws, goes to therapy, sings, helps Bobby rehearse an interview. Is this the stuff of insight? (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
Well.. I had never seen or heard of this movie but my husband put in on our Netflix list. It had a kind of a sweet, interesting story. It had my attention from the beginning. I didn't appreciate the sex content in this though. For reals, he is like 16 years old.. I just think it's stupid. But other than that, I liked the story. He just learns a lot about life within a few days of being in the hospital. It did have some funny things in it too. The boy had a kind of weird/interesting imagination. Yet it was funny (sometimes). But I just really liked the ending. It was great and I didn't think that Keir Gilchrist was too bad of an actor either.
