When he realizes he’s suicidal, he checks himself into the psychiatric ward of a hospital, thinking they’ll do an observation, help him, and send him home in time for school the next day. Once in, however, he must stay for a week; the juvenile ward is being renovated, so he’s in with adults as well as a few youths. Bobby, a man with a young daughter, shows him around; Craig notices Noelle, about his age. He tries to keep his friends from finding out where he is. Little things: he draws, goes to therapy, sings, helps Bobby rehearse an interview. Is this the stuff of insight?
Plot: A clinically depressed teenager gets a new start after he checks himself into an adult psychiatric ward.

nothing stands out in this
There wasn’t anything that happens in this movie that stands out. It’s not really a comedy or drama and I didn’t find it entertaining. Even Zack G. didn’t do anything funny. It’s about a teen, Craig, whom is depressed and dreams about suicide. So, he goes to a mental ward and gets checked in for 5 days with all the adults because the teen ward is closed. He meets one girl his age he sort of makes friends with. Then there is Bobby whom has a kid and is in there for suicide attempts also. Craig meets a few other “off” characters. The main thing he does is make life easier for all the patients because he gets along with everyone and throws a pizza party on his last day. So, now you see why it was boring.
FINAL VERDICT: Skip it.
Fun and moving story about a teenager under pressure
“It’s Kind of a Funny Story” is based on the book of the same title in which Ned Vizzini tells of his experience checking himself into an adult psychiatric ward at the suggestion of a suicide hotline. The film by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck is lighter than their previous two films, “Half Nelson” and “Sugar”, which deal with drug addiction and an immigrant’s experience. Still the issue of teenage suicide is a serious one, even though Vizzini’s book, and Boden/Fleck’s screenplay, treat it with many comedic moments. Keir Gilchist from “The United States of Tara” is nuanced and convincing in the lead role, and is backed up by a strong supporting cast led by Zach Galifianakis and Emma Roberts. If you can remember or relate to what it is to be a teenager under pressure from school, parents, friends, and life in general you will like this movie. It will make you laugh, cry, and be glad to be alive–isn’t that what film is all about?
