    The only thing Ryan Murphy hasn't completely fucked up, but this is like a knock off of a Wes Anderson film and Annette Bening deserves better... I can't believe my trashy ass still loves this movie though

    I think i'm sick of Ryan Murphy's work. It's a constant disappointment. He comes up with compelling concepts and brings in fairly good actors, but never pulls through in the end.

    The flow of this film is very disjointed. Each scene carries a different tone than the one before. Then again maybe that is fitting given the theme of the story. There are a few good scenes sprinkled in here and there, but overall the film fell flat for me.

    I kinda regret the $2 I spent to buy it; It's not really something I would watch again. 4/10: should have just downloaded it illegally.

    All I remember is laughing out loud in the theater. Now that I own it, must re-watch.

    Uneven adaptation of Augusten Burroughs's memoir of family dysfunction is interesting for some good performances and strong art direction but ultimately too undecided in its tone to leave much of an impression.

    Strange movie about a bizarre childhood. Great cast and 70's soundtrack. But the film is kinda lacking.

    Okay I question a lot here.
    The directing is good and the acting is top notch but there is definitely something missing here in this movie. I know this is made from a memoir and I wasn't present in Augusten Burroughs life so I don't know if most of, if not all, of this did indeed happen but some of it just doesn't feel like anyone, no matter how screwed up their family is, would actually go through.

    I don't think I've ever watched a movie as remotely fucked-up as this one. Not only are all characters completely nuts for no genuine reason, but the story also make no sense whatsoever. I didn't see the point of this movie, aside from sharing what mental illnesses can be like and what they can lead to, but I don't think it's been done properly.

    As I mentioned, the characters are all totally crazy. Most of them have no good reason…

    Movie Review: Running with Scissors (2006)
    Characters: I feel oppressed... WE NEED HIGHER CEILINGS!!! (Jumps on table and stabs roof with the end of a broom, or SOMETHING like that) .

    So, I watched this movie because of a recommendation from a good friend, and... I can't really figure out what he sees in it. The entire movie's a mess. The characters are a mess, the tone is a mess, the lame excuses for "comedy" (one if which includes trapping…
