It’s Kind of a Funny Story
Starring: Keir Gilchrist, Emma Roberts, Zach Galifianakis, Viola Davis, Zoe Kravitz
Directors: Ryan Fleck, Anna Boden
Universal Studios / Focus Features
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic issues, sexual content, drug material and language

It’s very easy for movies set in mental institutions and psychiatric wards to play to clichés. Actors can simply go over-the-top to play insane and act crazy for crazy’s sake. After all, clichés are easy to perform and require little to no effort on the part of the performer. But for all the films that do it wrong, it’s always a pleasure to see it done right. Such an example is the new release It’s Kind of a Funny Story, the second outing from directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. They and their actors bring charisma and humanity to their characters, with a mix of humor that doesn’t play on disabilities. It’s Kind of a Funny Story is a smart, comedic little film that is sure to charm. The movie is now available on VUDU to own, or to rent in SD, HD, and HDX for 48-hours. It is also available 28-days before Netflix and Redbox.
