Comedy drama
Zach Galifianakis is in nearly every movie designed to make you laugh being released nowadays. With It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Zach spreads his wings a little bit and starts showing off his dramatic abilities. As Bobby, mental ward patient and mentor to Craig (Keir Gilchrist), a young man dealing with some troubles, he gets plenty of laughs but manages to be quite moving in the heavier scenes. No doubt, he can handle the emotional stuff, and you shouldn’t be surprised to see him in straight-up dramatic roles in the near future.

Boise Weekly The Projector: Movies opening Friday, Oct. 8 Ryan Reynolds buried alive (tragic!); Zach Galifianakis and Keir Gilchrist tell a funny story (kind of); Wes Craven makes you pray (and scream); a race (horse) against the odds; accidental parents (who are as cute as the baby they are now responsible for); Philip Seymour Hoffman's fear of water (and women) and a couple of very special screenings. It's all at the movies. 10/08/2010

Charleston City Paper The fall 2010 book-to-movie preview Whether the result is good, like The Road, or absolutely horrible, like Ramona and Beezus, or just another dang adaptation of a Jane Austen novel, it's once again the season for filmmakers to turn a notable book into the next great (or terrible) film. Here are some of the lesser-known novels coming to your multiplex before year's end. (As always, release dates are subject to change.) by Scott Renshaw 09/08/2010
