Running With Scissors

Augustin Burroughs' autobiography gets the big screen treatment with an impressive cast, including Annette Bening, Brain Cox, Joseph Fiennes, Evan Rachel Wood, Alec Baldwin, Jill Clayburgh and Gwyneth Paltrow. Unfortunately, "Nip/Tuck" creator Ryan Murphy turns the whole affair into a cartoonish and rather dull affair in his first theatrical outing. Fans of Burroughs' colorful book will be disappointed. It's your basic coming-of-age tale about a kid raised by a crazy mother, who deposits him at the doorstep of her even crazier psychiatrist. Dysfunction ensues. 116 minutes R.
