If I needed an encyclopedia on every romanic comedy cliche ever conceived, It's Kind of a Funny Story would be my perfect guide. I think it all went downhill when the main character, unsure of how to grab the attention of a girl he likes,If I needed an encyclopedia on every romanic comedy cliche ever conceived, It's Kind of a Funny Story would be my perfect guide. I think it all went downhill when the main character, unsure of how to grab the attention of a girl he likes, receives the most "important" piece of advice in the whole film: drop the L word. The L word of course being Love, not Lesbians as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World put it for us earlier this year; a film by the way that actually broke some ground in the romcom genre. Of course, the main character being the dweeby idiot that most love story protagonists are these days, drops the L word at complete wrong moment... Top it off it with lover boy figuring out to win her back in the matter of 20 minutes and then a romantic makeout session on a scenic rooftop with the view of the sunset. Seriously? Despite the cliches this movie is riddled with cheesy performances and flat jokes. Zack Galifianakis is of course the films only redeeming quality; seeing him pull off a serious role so effectively is will give you chills... but everything else drags it down. Expand

This film disgusts me, my daughter is 13 and after watching it she requested we go to the doctors because of the mood swings she had been having. This film is promoting medication to a very young audience and should not be allowed to do so
