Zach Galifianakis thinks you should be bird doggin’ chicks

From co-directors Anna Bowden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson) comes It’s Kind of a Funny Story, based on the book by Ned Vizzini. Vizzini?  INCONCEIVABLE!

It’s Kind of a Funny Story finds a suicidal teen (played by The United States of Tara star Keir Gilchrist) checking himself into the psych ward for a minimum stay of five days. There he encounters various “wacky” types (hey, Daniel Faraday Jeremy Davies!) and, naturally, a young ingenue (boy hating Emma Roberts) ready to bring him into adulthood. But it’s Galifianakis as the de facto guide that makes the biggest impact on him and the trailer. [Movieline]

I wasn’t a fan of Half Nelson (it looked pretty, Baby Goose’s acting was great, and it had its moments, it just seemed like kind of a nothing story), and probably my least favorite premise is the protagonist-gets-sent-to-a-mental-hospital story.  Seems like every book with a male narrator from the 50s or 60s was required to have at least one mental hospital scene.  Don’t you see, man??  Society’s values were so outta whack they had to lock up everyone who didn’t think like them, maaaan!  Watch me play this bongo, man, it deflects conformists. That said, it has Zach Galifianakis, and Zach Galifianakis could stop bullets, change Coke to Pepsi, and find my f*ckin’ car keys, so you better believe I’ll be seeing the hell out of this movie.  I’d watch Zach Galifianakis take a dump. Hence why I bought these binoculars.
