It’s Kind of a Funny Story trailer, you guys:
This movie (looks to be) a very solid example of how important Fat Cat Hollywood Casting is. Because it actually looks pretty good. I would see this movie. I would watch this movie OF MY OWN FREE WILL, not even as a TORTURE CHAMBER. But it’s easy to imagine it another way. For example: if the troubled teenager was played by Zac Efron and the hospital patient was played by Jack Black and the love interest was played by Selena Gomez*, with a supporting cast of Jeff Dunham and Ant, I would not be as interested in watching it. Or if the troubled teenager was played by Penn Badgley and the hospital patient was played by Brad Garrett and the love interest was Elle Fanning, with a supporting cast of Carlos Mencia and Joe Rogan, I would not be as interested in watching it. Please feel free to make up your own nightmare cast for the independent dramedy It’s Kind Of A Funny Story. It should take you approximately all morning. In any case, it’s just nice to finally see a movie that reminds us how hard it is to be white and upper middle-class. It’s life, jump into life.
