So in another Redbox trip for the weekend I rented both The Social Network and It's Kind Of A Funny Story. Considering most people have probably already seen/read about The Social Network I figured I'd review the lesser known of my two rentals.
It's Kind Of A Funny Story is based of the novel of the same name that came out in 2006 by Ned Vizzini. I reluctantly gave this movie a chance, I had read the book more then once in the past and have been reluctant to have books ruined by movies like they have been before.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how well this movie was done. The actors really pulled off their parts well and the plot did not deviate too far from the book, which I love. The score for the film which was done by Broken Social Scene was excellent. And like the other movies I've reviewed there was some nice eye candy with Emma Roberts.
Overall this film was very well done and heart warming. I'd give it a 8.75-9.2/10.
