Running

This weekend J, Manda, and I went to the movies to see Running with Scissors. The movie tells the story of Augusten Burroughs and his life in the loon bin. Actually, not technically so...

He's just a boy born into a broken home with a delusional, poet mother and an angry, alcoholic father. After some therapy, the mother decides to have her son go to live with her equally insane therapist. Hysterical chaos ensues...

A Miraculous Turd, Dead Cat, Much-Older Lover, Dog Food, and a slew of Medication all receive uproariously funny supporting roles in this fun and yet sad story of how Augusten deals with the fate handed to him.

Oh, and I have to mention the killer performances from the cast including: Joseph Cross, Annette Bening, Brian Cox, Jill Clayburgh, Joseph Fiennes, Evan Rachel Wood, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabrielle Union, and Alec Baldwin. In fact, Jill Clayburgh deserves an Oscar for her work as the kibble-munching wife of the therapist.

I give this movie 2 thumbs up. Go see it!

What? You didn't go see your slug movie?? Well, color me surprised.

Thanks to your recommendation, I will go see this flick. Immediately after Borat (and I do mean "immediately" as I love a good excuse for a sneak-in double feature. Muahhahahahaaaa...)
