Movie Info

Walter Campbell (Matthew Glave) is an aging heartthrob struggling to keep up appearances--especially with his estranged adult daughter, Nic (Jana Winternitz). In an attempt to reconnect with his family, he invites himself to crash her vacation in Big Sur. Offering a ride to her friend Kim (Emily Bett Rickards), they bond in unexpected ways that are sure to ruin the lives of everyone in their path. From director Michael Gallagher comes a hilarious and heartfelt tragicomedy you never saw coming. Filled with memorable characters and award-winning performances, Funny Story teaches us about the destructive power of narcissism, the healing power of forgiveness, and the dangers of doing karaoke after drinking enough tequila.

  • Matthew Glave's charm and the script's wit compensate for a screenplay rife with gay stereotypes and cliches.

  • Gallagher shows a steady hand and an "acute" understanding of what's unfolding between Walter and Kim, creating a fascinating dynamic where the tension comes from seeing whether the pair can resist pulling others into their path of destruction.

  • Funny Story is a ... critical darling to come out of Slamdance 2018. If you are a fan of Emily Bett Rickards and this movie isn't on your radar, make sure it gets there.

  • Funny Story has an incredibly dry sense of humor that the actors execute perfectly. I was really sucked in by everything that was happening on screen.
