Movie trailer

Сomments

After watching the trailer, I think I was expecting a bit more comedy. I know better than to watch a comedy trailer, but did it anyway.
It was a good movie, but I thought if the timing and writing were a bit tighter could have been a great movie. Oh!! please please don't vote me down ;)

aww so sweet
A very sweet story. Thanks :)
great story....really well done-meaningful to all of us who have been through the dark night of the soul ..although the story is lighter in fare..I always found the most interesting people were those who had the courage to walk through the fire and were not afraid to live from that raw place...definitely not understood by media culture.
It's kind of a verrrry nice story... love it
Gotta love this movie! Good job on the acting and an amazing story that can lift you from your crappy mood :D

After seeing the horrible Bloodlust Zombies I had to see a good film.
Needing something with a certain quality to it. And not a time to watch a horror film or anything of ilk . So in complete darkness inside my bedroom as I patiently scrolled on the main page here on solar I came upon this rare find. I remembered seeing the trailer to this film when it came out like a few years ago. And then like what usually happens there is to much to keep track of in your mind and in your life. A film gets forgotten and is forever lost in the abyss. Until well you come across it again by mere accident. After seeing this I am quite certain that Zack can do no wrong. He's mostly known for his crude comedy and of course his strange man boy character in the Hangover films but he can do so much more.
Here he is genuinely funny and it really to help and not harm the main character as he's never been in a place such as this. Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. And that is what makes this film work. The Zack character. It's what kept me watching till the wee hours in the night till the early rays of a wednesday morning. That scene where the main character and Zack meet is pure comedy gold. It is probably why I saw the film to begin with. It sets up a very funny situation later on in the film. I am very impressed with Keir Glichrist performance and I thought he was a new comer but he has been acting for quite awhile. A lot of great performances by all the patients as well. Some faces that are clearly recognizable in other films that I have seen in the past. Like fades memories. What a talented actor Zack has become. I like this coming of age film more than most films that made on the subject because I can relate. The fact that they choose a mental ward as the setting for this is mind blowing. Anything for pure comedy gold. But what usually happens in films like this there is a light ending. And what I thought was special simply becomes ordinary like any other film. Bargain bins are filled with such films.
They had me up until the second act. There really wasn't anything at risk besides something really stupid. That being said All the fancies scenes are pretty funny and interesting. The rock concert had me in giggles with how ridiculous funny it was. That scene and the intro of both characters are the scenes that I'll remember long after I have forgotten this film. Love the song by the way. But I do think that the reason that he is in there is pretty stupid.
But a guess that is the joke right? But since that is nothing truly wrong with him that isn't much of a strong goal here. And we know he getting out on Friday. The second act was a joke. Would see this film again just for kicks

Better than average coming of age type of movie about a teen who checks into a mental health ward. Lots of interesting characters. Some funny, some sad, some romance. Thanks to nanu for the recommendation and to all the linkers for their help.
