Apparently this film is based on the life of Augusten Burroughs, the author of the book "Running with Scissors". While I was not interested in the book, the movie was certainly enjoyable, but how much of it is really biographical... As Olivia says, it is "so unbelievable and yet so real". Some situations will make you laugh, and others you will simply be stunned! I took it as a comedy, but I'm... read more

I really liked this movie. It is completely bizarre in a really enjoyable way. Annette Bening does an excellent job in her role, as do the other actors...but she stands out just a bit more than the others.

Well, basically...it just didn't work for me.

I usually like zany strange offbeat movies (Eternal Sunshine, Garden State, Lost in Translation), but this one just went a bit overboard.

There were definitely some cool moments in it, but I thought overall it just, wasn't really a story I could get in to. I couldn't relate to any of the characters really at all, and I co... read more

13 Horrifically Misjudged Movie Taglines (13 movies items)

"Tagline: Do Not Disturb Them. They Already Are. This tagline perplexes me in ways I didn’t know it was possible to be perplexed. Let’s try and figure it out together. So the name of the movie is Running With Scissors. Okay. And the “they already are” part means to imply that these characters are already “running with scissors,” I guess. But what the is up with the “Do Not Disturb Them” part? Don’t disturb them? ‘Cause they’re already disturbed, maybe? Still, why the use o"

New-to-Me Films of 2012 (366 movies items)

"When trying to make a film out of Augusten Burroughs' memoir, there is a danger of leaving out much of the character traits and plot details that make the book so bizarre. Unfortunately, this is exactly what this film does, and the final product itself is just so drab and uninteresting. "
