London Film Festival: It's Kind Of A Funny Story

If you're planning to see It's Kind Of A Funny Story, don't forget to take your Indie Flick Checklist:
  • Hopeless loser protagonist inexplicably fancied by at least two beautiful girls
  • Peer group of shallow idiots including female object of desire
  • Kooky female with less make-up than female object of desire
  • Dysfunctional family
  • Supporting cast of "offbeat" characters
  • Mainstream comedy star proving dramatic chops
  • Actor(s) from popular TV series, pref. Lost or 24
  • Frequent references to hip indie bands
  • One musical number, usually highlight of film
  • One animated sequence
  • Scene towards end in which protagonist runs through corridors of an institution releasing feelings of repression and frustration to soundtrack of obscure indie pop
You won't be disappointed! Unless of course you were hoping for something original and memorable.

I would also like to request that everybody going to see It's Kind Of A Funny Story cuts out and wears The Incredible Suit's patented Zach Galifianakis Face Of Hairy Wonder:
One day all men will look like this and the world will be a better place for it.

It's Kind Of A Funny Story is showing at 6.15pm on Tuesday 19th October, 12.30pm on Wednesday 20th October and 2.45pm on Thursday 21st October at Vue Leicester Square.

  1. Well, after that exhaustive review the movie will need naming as 'It's kind of a predictable story.' We'll all be waitng for the run through the corridors as the moment to beat the rush to leave, the noise of our excuses as we shuffle along to the aisle muffled by the indie band that sounds as gaga as the film's inmates.

  2. Please God don't let anyone be seen in public wearing that mask! My eye's can't take it.

  3. I intend to grow my own Gallifreynackers beard so you needn't worry about me love.
