Funny People 2009 ★★★½

This movie had Seth Rogen in it. This movie had Eminem in it. This movie also had arguably Adam Sandler's finest dramatic work in, ironically, a comedy, outside of P.T. Anderson's criminally underrated Punch Drunk Love. This movie also has The Rza in it, but he's not in the same part as Eminem. Sandler's plot seems chilling and true to life, both in the sense that the film industry renders people indifferent users of other human beings, and that Sandler seems to be pretty aware that he's playing himself as this type of person, but his character wouldn't have any problem getting paid for that, and he's based on Adam Sandler. Three and a half stars, but only because The Romantic Subplot Was Tacked On.
