    I love this movie. A couple of scenes in particular (you can probably guess which ones) just absolutely got me.

    The dialogue was fantastic and it felt as if every line was important to the plot in some way.

    Excellent casting (clearly). Everyone delivered great performances and played their individual characters to perfection.

    I found there to be an important message beneath the dynamic outer layer. The director, to me, explained this message in a way I completely understood and…

    I enjoyed this film greatly. It is a true cinematic bromance, and the depiction of cancer is raw and at times beautiful. I would warn that it has a rough start. The first half an hour is actually hard to watch, but the movie gets so much better and becomes worth it.

    Can't help but like this movie. Set in Seattle, this is the story of Adam Lener, a 27 year-old dude who doesn't know how to drive a car and works at a local radio station, that gets unfortunately gets cancer. JGL shines as Adam, as he brings out all the different stages in a cancer patient, from denial to acceptance. Seth Rogen is also great as his buddy Kyle, he wasn't too over the top or anything. Anna Kendrick is…

    A perfectly manipulative lighthearted film. There's so many likable features and such a simple, but effective, style of filmmaking that makes 50/50 incredibly hard to dislike. The delicate harmony between genuinely funny comedy and equally honest, not appellative, moving moments produces an inevitably charming movie.

    Often times feel-good films tend to exaggerate in their will to please the audience. Stacking appealing subjects, cool actors and too many sequences of people moving while some upbeat/sad song plays can backfire if it…

    Comedia dramática que cuenta con gracia una historia que sin tintes de humor sería solo una historia triste. El humor es crucial y está muy bien lograda.

    50/50 is a wonderful film that takes a serious, but quirky look at cancer life. What could have been a dull, depressing movie with the right direction is actually kinda hopeful, and the film makes it to where you can actually relate to Adams (Leavitt) situation because it's the honest reaction we would have to heart wrenching situations as well. The film did feel like it was being very emotionally manipulative at times, especially with its choice of music, and…

    A sweet sometimes dark comedy that has its heart in the right place. Seth does Seth but Levitt pulls off a lovely low key turn. Nice

    This film was horribly advertised by Summit Entertainment. They made it seem like another Seth Rogen bromance, but with a "serious" subject matter this time. That led to the movie being largely ignored by almost everyone. Which is a shame because the film is BRILLIANT.

    It's the story of a 27-year-old named Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) whose diagnosed with spinal cancer. Most 27-years-olds like to consider themselves adults but this movie, which is based on the screenwriter's life, argues that notion.…
