More Info:
  • Calvin Wilson

    Gilchrist ("United States of Tara") is immensely appealing as a kid who's just a bit too wrapped up in himself to grasp that perhaps his problems aren't insurmountable.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Fleck and Boden point out the absurd humor inherent in mental illness without trivializing its causes or consequences. This is not an easy trick, and it's largely thanks to Galifianakis' amalgam of wackiness and awkward sorrow that it works.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Despite some dark undercurrents, the movie emphasizes humor, and its best moments are more than kind of funny.

    NPR Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    It's Kind of a Funny Story is kind of a perfect coming-of-age comedy, with its bittersweet fun set loose in the adult psych ward of a Brooklyn hospital where this clever case of teenage depression, identity and self-esteem is examined.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Boden and Fleck's unabashedly warmhearted film is a sensitively wrought but also very funny portrait of the way we respond to pressure.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Sometimes, maybe, it's a little too unoffensive: It's Kind of a Funny Story is so gentle, so anxious not to put a foot wrong, that it doesn't have much sticking power. But its casually compassionate perspective is also what makes it work.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    I don't blame you for backing off a movie that focuses on a suicidal teen who learns warm life lessons by spending five days in a Brooklyn hospital's psych ward. Stop worrying. It's Kind of a Funny Story, based on Ned Vizzini's semiautobiographical novel, breaks the jinx.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The result is both a success and a disappointment. It's Kind of a Funny Story, divided into neat little daylong chapters in Craig's stay, lacks the staying power and bittersweet layering of "Half Nelson" and "Sugar."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Ambles along and has a feeling of randomness about it, but, in fact, it's tightly plotted. Every moment, however seemingly haphazard and casually presented, is keyed to the progress of a young man from lost to not so lost.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Notable for the easy chemistry of its ensemble cast.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Whether this is an accurate depiction of how things are in real life, I cannot say, but it's almost always how they are in the movies.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It's also the kind of movie that, for all of its smarts and huggability, stumbles every so often. Usually that happens when it's trying just a bit too hard to be cute, such as in its occasional surrealist, animation-assisted segments.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    It's Kind of a Funny Story may be the first psych-ward drama to draw on John Hughes movies for tonal reference.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Even though the various patients too often come across as cutesy case studies, Fleck and Boden for the most part avoid working their lives up into some grand-scale "Cuckoo's Nest"-style microcosm of humanity.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Gilchrist, Emma Roberts and, especially, Zach Galifianakis, give affecting performances, but they are ultimately let down by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's screenplay.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    It's worth considering precisely whom the movie is meant for. It's not labeled as such, but It's Kind of a Funny Story is squarely aimed at young adults.

    Time Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The filmmakers fully retain their offbeat sensibility and attentiveness to character while providing perhaps the sharpest showcase yet for Zach Galifianakis' outsized talents.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The film itself is fairly slight: I'm not sure what it adds up to. Still, I enjoyed every moment of its beguiling saga of a depressed teen named Craig.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Galifianakis' magnetic performance suggests murky psychological depths the film doesn't have the substance to plumb.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    This is a film about depression, though, and it comes awfully close to trivializing its subject by suggesting that all Craig needed, really, was a cute girl to like him back.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    If there's a psych ward for motion pictures, It's Kind of a Funny Story should check itself in. Boden and Fleck's film suffers from bipolar disorder: manic and silly one minute, moody and muted the next.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    What's largely missing from It's Kind of a Funny Story: genuine emotional pain. Still, the movie's an often charming example of "Cuckoo's Nest'' Lite.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Melancholy 16-year-olds are the ideal audience for It's Kind of a Funny Story, which actually feels as though it were made by an especially precocious adolescent.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    There are humor and pathos, but a crucial dimension of intensity is missing. The best I can say is that it's kind of a good movie.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    A fairly standard coming-of-age story, but the peripheral wackos keep it from feeling too pat. The film inhabits that elusive space between sanity and insanity, where most of life takes place.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    There's not a moment of true wildness in It's Kind of a Funny Story, which never gets any more outrageous than projective vomiting.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    It might be called "It's Kind of a Thin Movie."

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Cute, bordering on cutesy, yes. Light and shallow and inconsequential in a lot of ways. But funny? Rarely.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    Isn't very funny or much fun at all.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    A dramatically inert, lethargic dramedy that isn't nearly as quirky and poignant is it perceives itself.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Material like this doesn't require the additional strain of overnarrated freeze-frames, a "Cuckoo's Nest" supporting cast of adorable crazies and a Glee-ified musical number set to Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure."

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Eric Hynes

    "I used to think art was just bourgeois decadence," a wiser Craig says in the end, which is funny, because that's kind of what this film is.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    There's very little that's even kind of funny in It's Kind of a Funny Story, which can't accurately be described as a comedy but isn't a true drama, either.
