    Zach Galifianakis, Keir Gilchrist, Lauren Graham and Emma Roberts star in this uplifting comedy about finding sanity in the most unlikely of places. Sometimes what’s in your head isn’t as crazy as you think…that’s certainly true for Craig (Gilchrist), a stressed-out teenager who checks himself into a mental health clinic for some time out. What he finds instead is an unlikely mentor (Galifianakis), a potential new romance (Roberts) and an opportunity to begin anew. Charming, witty and smart, it’s a coming-of-age story that’s kind of a funny story…

    4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and uplifting February 12, 2011
    Format:DVD
    It's Kind of a Funny Story is an uplifting tale about a teenager overwhelmed by academic and social pressures who briefly checks himself into a psychiatric hospital. The lead actor, Keir Gilchrist (Craig), nails his role as a somber and confused 16-year-old. The supporting cast is good as well, although the female love interest is a bit cardboard and the resolution clichéd. The psychiatric hospital is also much more benign than any I have encountered (See Lemas Mitchell's Amazon review for a list of reality checks). But that's not really the point; it's more of a coming-of-age story about an adolescent trying to find his place in the world. What I liked most is the film's message about the importance of kindness; Craig is truly a kind person who feels for other people, and the other patients and staff for the most part echo that kindness and caring. Another highlight is Zach Galifianakis's creative and quirky direction, especially the scenes when Craig retreats into his active fantasy world as he sings, draws, and reminisces. Overall, I would recommend this movie for a pleasant and humorous escapist jaunt.

    5.0 out of 5 stars It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) November 12, 2010
    Format:DVD
    The movie should be called "It's Kind of an Amazing Movie". When you go see a Zach Galifianakis movie, you don't expect anything more than a stupid comedy (that has potential to be good), but "It's Kind of a Funny Story" was way better than the exceptions I had. The movie was funny, intense, and some-what depressing/sad. The movie makes you think about life. The movie makes you think about how lucky you are or realize the good things in life. This movie is a must see. It is truly amazing and probably one of the best movies of 2010 so far.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies! March 7, 2011
    By Noko
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I saw It's Kind of a Funny Story in theatres for a friend's birthday party. She gave us the options for movies and I had no idea what any of the suggested were about. I had no expectations (actually I didn't want to see the movie at all... I voted for one of the other movies) but after the movie was over I wanted to watch it again!

    One of the great things about this movie is the characters. They're screwed up, and likeable, and an interesting band of personalities all shoved into one spot. The different insights they make on living life are, yes a little cliched, but stuff wouldn't be cliched if they weren't applicable! It's fun watching the main character turn into what he wanted and take charge of his life. It was funny, awkward, romantic, made some really good points, sad, and it gives a warm fuzzy feeling!

    After I saw that movie I went straight to the bookstore! I needed more! I read the book in a matter of days. This is the first time I've ever said (typed) anything like this: I liked the movie better than the book! Don't get me wrong; the book was awesome and funny, but I loved the movie so much!

    All in all a fun watch! Great characters, good points, witty dialogue, and just enough romance! Highly recommended!

    5.0 out of 5 stars It's Kind of a Funny Story March 2, 2011
    Format:DVD
    You would think a movie about a kid who checks himself into a psych ward would NOT be "kind of a funny story". This is an amazing story - it will make you laugh, chuckle, and think. Every actor/actress gives a great performance. As the mother of a 17 and 18 year old it made me understand the amount of pressure they are under in their every day lives and how we sometimes, unknowingly, add to that pressure.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie; lighhearted while serious September 6, 2012
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    This was a fantastic movie! It deals with a very, very serious issue... but it does so in a way that is more lighthearted and "normal." We watched this movie with our 14-year old daughter, and I think it was an appropriate message for her. Number one, it shows how serious teen suicide is taken. Two, it shows how often adults just don't "get" what their children are going through. And three, it was entertaining and heartwarming. Great movie.

    Format:DVD
    A depressed high schooler commits himself in to a psychiatric ward and discovers himself. After a year of suicidal thoughts and dreams, caused by the stress of getting in to a good school, Craig (Gilchrist) commits himself "accidentely" to a psych ward at the local hospital. While there he meets new friends Noelle (Roberts) and Bobby (Zach Galifianakis) and realizes he has more to give. The subject matter is serious but the movie is actually pretty light-hearted and...kind of funny...(get it?). Galifianakis plays a different role in this then we are used to, but does a good job with it and I would not be surprised to see more like this come his way. I can't talk too much about this without giving anything away but I would definatly pick this one up. A feel good movie about mental patients, how many of those have you seen? I give it a B+.

    Would I watch again? - Yes, I think I would.

    1.0 out of 5 stars What's the point ? January 25, 2014
    By Speedy
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I bought this movie because it was recommended to me by a physician in the ER who was admitting my son to the hospital for depression. She said it was a lovely movie and we should see it. Before we could watch it we heard news that the young man committed suicide. That was a kick to my stomach. I would never watch it with my son knowing that things didn't end well. That this young man couldn't fight his demons any longer and succumbed to suicide. Now this uplifting movie has become a tragedy. So sad....

    I could've gone without watching this film. However, to those suffering with depression, especially during adolescence, it might be a nice movie to watch.
