Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, isolated from the crushing pressures of school and friends, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety. Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness. For a novel about depression, it's definitely a funny story. "Funny... Vizzini supplies personal insights and a clever, self-deprecating tone that make the book an entertaining read." - The Washington Post


Craig (Keir Gilchrist) checks himself into the psych ward for his suicidal thought. At least he thinks that he's having suicidal thoughts. The children's ward is under renovation, and he's been put in with the adults for at least 5 days. He was hoping to just be given new meds. He's in love with his friend, but she's already with someone else. In the ward, he meets some real cases like Bobby (Zach Galifianakis), and quirky fellow patient Noelle (Emma Roberts).It's a very light and fluffy look at the psych ward. It's definitely not 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. Keir Gilchrist is adorable. Zach Galifianakis is zany without his usual crazy wildness. Keir and Emma make for a cute couple. The movie is like the lead Craig. It thinks it's more serious than it actually is. But it works as an adorable rom-com for emotionally fragile kids. It's cute. It's likable. Sometimes, it's even funny.


Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck also adapted this screenplay from Ned Vizzini's novel about a teenager with suicidal thoughts who checks himself into a hospital ward for disturbed patients, hoping for a 24-hour cure; instead, he's held for observation and learns about institution life from on the inside. This hospital floor, overflowing as it is with colorful personalities, doubles-up the adult patients (some with apparently serious issues) with teens who can't cope with school problems or their parents. It's an even slicker version of the standard Hollywood version of the kind of mental asylum movies we usually get, one wherein the self-indulgent protagonist becomes aware he's been self-indulgent simply by relating to his mental patient companions (including one pretty girl his own age, natch). Zach Galifianakis gives this dishonest scenario some bounce in a co-starring role as a long-term patient with an emotional hair-trigger. Galifianakis' scenes, however (particularly a role-playing sequence geared for an easy laugh), stick out as small-scaled showcases for the actor. One is immediately drawn to Galifianakis because of his warmly-joshing personality, but there is nothing embraceable about young leading actor Keir Gilchrist, who begins nearly every line of dialogue with, "Well, it's like, I mean..." The picture has a quirky edge that passes for modern, but is really just a happy-ending-story for one individual character--and, arguably, the least-likable person in the group. ** from ****
