Anthony Ray Bench
The movie is definitely worth checking out for its strong performances and surprising story.
Charm and wit count for a lot in romantic comedies, and they compensate for the many sins of Funny Story.
Los Angeles Times
Funny Story is only mildly humorous, but it’s watchable thanks to Glave’s game performance that makes him likable despite his foibles.
The Hollywood Reporter
Funny Story (co-written with Steve Greene) proves much more polished than its pedigree might suggest — a warmhearted seriocomedy that, even when not thoroughly convincing, projects a disarming sincerity.
Your appreciation for this film will depend in large part on where this all falls on your personal continuum from “funny” to “funny-ish,” to “eww.”
