It’s Kind of a Funny Story

The movie was good but it felt a little too cookie cutter. The movie is about a kid (Craig) who checks himself into a psyche ward because he is depressed and wants to kill himself. The main issue I have is that Craig doesn’t come off as depressed. The only reason why we know that he is is because he says it. On a positive note Zach Galifianakis does a great job as one of the older patients in the ward. I know that the film is based on a novel and am interested in checking it out to see how the two differ and if the novel is darker.

  1. I liked the movie, but also want to read the book. Let me know what you think of the book when you start it and I will follow suit.
