About the Movie

Zach Galifianakis, Keir Gilchrist, Lauren Graham and Emma Roberts star in this uplifting comedy about finding sanity in the most unlikely of places. Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think…that's certainly true for Craig (Gilchrist), a stressed-out teenager who checks himself into a mental health clinic for some time out. What he finds instead is an unlikely mentor (Galifianakis), a potential new romance (Roberts) and an opportunity to begin anew. Charming, witty and smart, it's a coming-of-age story that's kind of a funny story…

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Disarmingly gentle, sweet and whimsical. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Oct 8, 2010

Fresh: Despite the pleasant, loopy energy and fine performances -- Galiflanakis conjures a surprisingly sad character, and I grew fond of Gilchrist, with his impenetrable black eyes and rosebud mouth -- you walk out of it shaking your head. – Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, Oct 8, 2010

Rotten: Co-directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, who directed the gritty indie dramas Half Nelson and Sugar, go all gooey and sentimental here. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Oct 8, 2010

Rotten: So many elements, from its setup to scenes of therapy sessions and hallway high jinks, seem as canned as the blandest dayroom Muzak. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Oct 8, 2010

Wonderful Movie

I went opening week to see this movie and was surprised on how empty the theatre was. This was a fantastic movie and the acting is superb. If your thinking this is a laugh-out-loud comedy, your half right. Don't get me wrong, this movie was hilarious, but it's more of a drama than a comedy. This is a must buy!

Best movie EVER!!!

This was the most life changing movie ever and it was hilarious. Favorite movie of all time.

Amazing Movie

Great movie. 'Nuff said.

Great music too! And Zach Galifianakis is hilarious. A must-see
