Expecting nothing, but it was not bad
on September 6, 2012
Honestly, I hate Zach Galifianakis. I hate him as an actor, and from the interviews I have heard, I hate him as a person. He is gross, crash, and just not my type of humorist at all.
But playing a mentally deranged person, he was pretty good. Not his usually gross self.
Typically teenage angst movie. Kid lets pressures of every day life get too him, his family is no good, above average intelligence, jocks start beating him up, blah blah, same stuff they feed them on TV. Decides to commit suicide, but checks himself into rehab.
It was a enjoyable not too boring ride. No great moments, no ups and downs, just plain, a little too long in the middle.
Hope a lot of teenagers saw the ending. It did make a great point, and that all life is work living.
