It's Kind of a Funny Story Reviews

Galifianakis [is] able to turn on a dime; balancing his disarming humour with moments of anguished outbreaks. His is one of the best supporting performances of recent memory; equally funny and heartbreaking. If only I could say the same of the movie.

For all its problems, though, the film is easy-going, frequently channels into a sweet-natured tone and is able to raise a few chuckles.

It may not be One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but it's also not Patch Adams.

...runs out of steam about half way through but with a likable cast and an interesting setup you'll want to finish what you started.

It's also a kind of two-dimensional romance, a kind of flippant look at life on a mental ward, and (...) kind of made me want to give Zach Galifianakis a hug.

It's Kind of a Funny Story lacks substance, but after you've spent a short time in this ward, you have to agree with Craig: These crazies aren't so bad.

The film's central element -- its sensitive exploration of a young teen's emotional confusion -- creates strong audience empathy, however, and gives Fleck and Boden a fertile focus for their signature light-hearted humanist storytelling.

Wavering between affecting dramedy and goofy asylum- com, this is an enjoyable but superficial placebo that soft-soaps the realities of psychological disorder.

[A] flimsy, box-ticking quirk fest.

As a self-help sitcom, it feels both glib and icky. Glicky?

In the end, like the instantly-forgettable title, it's kind of neither one thing nor the other and certainly no match for the likes of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or even Girl, Interrupted.

Boden and Fleck expertly negotiate the fine line between sunny optimism and deepest despair, as Craig's emergence into a renewed love for life is offset by the rather different kind of departure that is delicately hinted for another main character.

This boy doesn't need therapy or happy pills but a large slap round the chops.

No it's not. It's kind of a rubbish story.

As disposable as a paper cup and, for such promising directors, a serious regression.

It's a fine teen film - and how often do you see those words in the same sentence?

I'm pretty sure if I'd seen this movie when I was 17, I would have loved it.

In the end, the title of the film contains an irony that may be lost on the filmmakers: this is kind of a funny story, no more, no less.
