Teen Review: 'It's Kind of a Funny Story'

I agree that Jesus did do a good job in reviewing this movie, he gave you a good outline of the basic plot. Leaving you with enough information to decide whether you want to see it or not but not too much to where you know about it all. I believe he does fulfill the job of a critique the part of his review that i found impressive was when he uses recent events from real life to show what message the movie and book were trying to send, like the suicide of Tyler Clementi. He goes into detail about how suicide and depression is a rising problem among teens and i agree with that. Whether it be from bullying, or an invasion into your private life suicidal thoughts are far too common. I haven't read the book or seen the movie but this review has given me an idea on what it is about and how it covers such a serious topic like teen suicide. And i have made the decision that i will watch the movie and read the book and judge them for myself, I'm interested in seeing if the movie successfully covers the topic. Good job Jesus!
