MOVIE REVIEW

While not perfect, It's Kind of a Funny Story is a fun, quirky film with a lot of heart.  The story follows depressed teenager Craig, who after a slew of suicidal thoughts decides to check himself into the psychiatric ward at a nearby hospital.  The juvenile wing is closed, so he is placed in the adult ward where he meets an eclectic group of patients.  Despite realizing that his problems pale in comparison to many of his neighbors, due to regulations, Craig must stay in the ward for five days before he can be released.  During this time, Craig becomes good friends with Bobby (Zach Galifianakis) and Noelle (Emma Roberts) and begins to slowly find his way again.
