    Not really sure what I made of this one. Funny in places, covers some pertinant points about chemotherapy, cancer treatment and dealing with the prospect of death at a young age.

    50/50 is a great piece of film dealing with a universal topic known as cancer. It's based on screenwriter Will Reiser's own personal experience with cancer. Joseph Gordon Levitt (one of my favorite actors) plays Adam, he lives a good decent life working at at a Seattle public radio station and has a mundane girlfriend named Racheal (played by the beautiful Bryce Dallas Howard) But Adam's decent life comes tumbling down when he learns he has spine cancer. And that's…

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt bring an undeniable charm to the film, but the questionable pacing and low quality writing leaves a lot to be desired.

    One of the most perfect comedies I have ever seen. Poignant and incredibly funny, very lifelike and real. I could watch this again and again.

    There's at least 50 reasons why this movie is worth watching, but here's 10 for now.

    1. Skeletor is a great name for a dog.
    2. Just that haircut goes a long way to turning Angelica Huston into an overbearing mother: "I smothered him because I loved him."
    3. Adam's co-workers at his 'leaving party' are so accurately awkward.
    4. The moment Kyle takes a spy photo of Adam's unfaithful girlfriend Rachael kissing 'Jesus'.
    4. "No one wants to fuck…

    50/50 is a contrived film with a cast of unsympathetic characters and enough cliche to induce vomiting.

    Seth Rogen goes on a misogynistic warpath and we are merely along for the ride, expected to find his offensiveness hilarious and cute because, you know....cancer!

    A pedestrian film with just the "right" music to accompany the predictable emotional cues which leave the audience ripe for manipulation.

    The most complex and unpredictable character was Skeletor...the retired pound-dog. I'll give him a star, he can share it with Anjelica Huston.

    I found that this movie feels almost like a much darker version of Knocked Up, Seth Rogen seems to be playing the same character as in that film.

    Unlike Knocked Up this film's jokes are much less frequent and the pacing isn't quite as perfect. The movie pours the drama in very thick in the last 30-40 minutes or so which is a bit heavy compared to most of the film which comes off as a much more straightforward romantic…

    Congratulations to Will Reiser, but this is a bad movie.
