Let me preface this article by saying I would give anything to have Zach Galifianakis as my mentor. His interview style on Funny or Die's 'Between Two Ferns' is impeccable. His sharp barbs and probing questions invariably catch his guests off-guard, even now that his reputation precedes him and they have some idea of what to expect.
That said, I don't believe his character, Bobby, in 'It's Kind of a Funny Story,' (in theaters October 8th) is mentor material. But that doesn't stop him from acting as a mentor of sorts to 16-year-old Craig (Kier Gilchrist). The two meet when clinically-depressed Craig checks himself into the psych ward. He meets longtime resident Bobby, the two connect and Craig begins turning to Bobby for advice and guidance.
While Bobby may actually prove to be a worthy mentor to Craig, I can't get past the image of Zach Galifiankis hitting a baby's head with a car door in 'The Hangover.' So, naturally, hearing about his new role as a mentor prompted me to ponder other unlikely movie role models. Without further ado, I present the Top 10 inappropriate movie mentors.
