Comedian Zach Galifianakis is known for appearing in funny stories. 'The Hangover,' for instance, was widely considered to be a very funny story when it dominated the box office last summer. His upcoming collaboration with Steve Carrel, 'Dinner For Schmucks,' is rumored to be a quite funny story as well. But his next movie? Well, it's only kind of a funny story.

Actually, that's the title of the movie: 'It's Kind of a Funny Story.' Based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, 'It's Kind of a Funny Story' tells the tale of a teenager named Craig (Keir Gilchrist, not Galifianakis, mind you) who checks himself into a mental hospital to deal with the overwhelming pressures of high school. On the inside he ends up discovering himself, thanks in part to the help of a surprisingly sane resident, Bob (played by Galifianakis). And if the new trailer is any indication, well, it does appear to be kind of a funny story.
