Review
'Running with Scissors' is a painfully funny drama about a 14-year-old lad on the cusp of adulthood surrounded by familial and extended dysfunctionality that even the term ‘Mad House' can't do justice. Adopted by the family of his barking mother's eccentric therapist, Augusten learns, in an often less than direct route, that life's big decisions are now his alone to make. Neither as witty nor as intelligent as its stella cast might imply, 'Running with Scissors' is still a likeable and quirky film, with some fine out of character performances. Based on the memoirs of Augusten Burroughs.
