Movie Review: Running With Scissors

Running With Scissors

This movie is so bad that I can't believe the book is any good. Now, I haven't read it, but it sits on my shelf next to other memoirs waiting to be read. There's not a likeable--or sane--character in sight. There should be at least one foil for us to relate to, someone to say, geez, these people are crazy. Young Augusten has no personality. Then when he does begin to act out, it seems out of place and uncharacteristic.

Maybe this all has to do with the film and is not reflective of the book. The movie, though, had nothing pulling me through, nothing that made me care a lick about what happens with any of those people.
