Funny Story

We’ve seen the guts of this film before – two people have more in common than they think they do and hilarity (sometimes) ensues.  The film has a nice pace to it and the main characters are excellent.  What really set this film apart is that every time you expect it to go in one direction it really never does.

Spoiler

I found it extremely interesting that in the final scene it seems that the father’s decision was actually justified even though many viewers (including myself) probably thought he would do the opposite as we are conditioned to think that way about movies.
