50/50 2011 ★★★½

A decent, well-made comedy that trudges into moving drama and does it well. Though I was skeptical when Bryce Dallas Howard showed up (I hate, hate, hate her), she quickly moved off screen where she belongs and the film became less a comedy about sex than a drama about facing cancer. Not quite the achingly poignant drama I'd hoped for, nor the laugh-out-loud comedy, but something in between that manages to be a decent film.
