Movie Review: It’s Kind Of A Funny Story

 By Rochell Henry, Class of 2013

 Who would have thought that a teenage boy would learn more in five days then what he takes his whole life to learn. “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” is a film about eccentric people who are depressed. This film has a few lines that make you question what the writers were thinking while others just have you holding your stomach with laughter. When I watched this movie, I felt as if the movie was directed at me and I’m sure any teenager can relate to it. This film has character that you see in an everyday teenager.

You have Craig, the protagonist, who is also suicidal and trying to figure out his life. Then you have Noelle, who is one of your most typical teenagers because she’s a cutter. When you mix these two together, you get a very dysfunctional, craze loving couple. You may not understand their relationship and how they work, but at least you have an understanding of what and who they are. This movie to me just sums up your everyday life that any teenager would go through and it helps that this movie is very funny and has some interesting characters as I’ve mention before.

“It’s Kind of a Funny Story” is very self-explanatory and if you don’t get it then I think you should check yourself into a psychiatric ward…. Just kidding!
