Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think. That's certainly true for Craig, a stressed-out teenager who checks himself into a mental health clinic for some time out. What he finds instead is an unlikely mentor, a potential new romance, and an opportunity to begin anew. Charming, witty, and smart, it's a coming-of-age story that's kind of a funny story.

Really interesting story that I almost didn't continue with. Worth the time. I liked the characters and their sometimes unusual personalities. Minus half a star because of the sexual innuendos.

It's better then you might expect. Depression and mental health are portrayed a shade more honestly then what you usually see in movies. They could have certainly gone a lot further and it's still just a movie so resolutions happen a little more neatly then they ever would in life. But if you've ever had or known someone with mental health issues like depression there is some relatable material here. The performances are great and the casting suits the movie. Nice to see Zach Galifianakis display a more serious side of his talents. The line between funny and serious is managed fairly well, just know it's not strictly meant as a comedic movie.

This was an OK movie, a little slow throughout but harmless with some good humour. Not a must see but not a complete waste of time.

I liked this movie. I don't know what people were expecting? It to be a major comedy because of the name of the film? Mental health issues aren't always funny. Some kids are over stressed and don't know how to deal with it. I am glad that no one killed themselves. I really thought that the guy would at the end of the movie before he got to go to the half way house. Watch it!

Some good lines but just "OK" for me.

Don't listen to naysayers. Great film which is probably not meant to be a true representation of a psych ward. Lots of laugh out loud moments and Zach Galifianakis' performance seems heartfelt. It's more of a portrayal of the outside world than of those with serious mental illness so don't take it as such. Highly recommend.

Meh. We didn't turn it off after 20 minutes, but there's very little that's rewarding in this movie. The Queen tribute scene was fun. The drawing scene was pretty neat. Otherwise, unrealistic and not worth it, really. There are plenty of other, funnier stories out there in the wide world.

An excellent feel-good comedy that really gets all the emotions & connections going. Really enjoyed it.

decent actors, but the material just wasn't up to it being a great movie.
