Synopsis


50/50
Written by Will Reiser who based the film on his own experiences fighting cancer, Jonathan Levine's poignant comedy 50/50 stars Joseph Gordonn-Levitt as Adam, a 27-year-old public-radio employee who discovers he has cancer. As his best friend Kyle (Seth Rogen) tries to help out, his girlfriend Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard) proves to be a less than ideal life partner for this particular crisis. All the while, Adam's overprotective mother Diane (Anjelica Huston) tries to overcome her son's continued attempts to keep her out of his life. As Adam begins to discover how hard it is to deal with his situation, and to maintain various relationships in his life, he begins seeing a young counselor (Anna Kendrick) who might prove to be just as helpful personally as she is professionally. Matt Frewer and Philip Baker Hall co-star as Adam's fellow chemotherapy patients. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    I went to see this in the movies not knowing what to expect because my friend wanted to see it. I was surprised by what a great movie this was. Top notch acting and story line. I'm not the biggest Seth Rogan fan, but I think he nailed the role and it is one of the best performances by JGL. This is also a movie that will make you laugh and cry all at once the perfect mix. It is definitely for more mature audiences due to the adult scenes and humor. But overall a top notch movie and in my opinion the best movie of 2011.

    I remember wanting to see this movie when it hit the theaters, but I didn't have the chance. It didn't seem to get a lot of hype at the time, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of my favorite actors, so I had to check the movie out once it was on DVD. It's such a great little film. If you're looking for a heartfelt story with some humor sprinkled in, this movie is for you.

    Funny & Sad movie

    I enjoyed this movie more than I had expected. While there is ample humor it is the dramatic aspects that really get to you. There aren't completely good or bad people -- although the girlfriend gets close to being a really bad person -- so you get a fuller idea of who each person truly is. This feels like a true story type of movie, but I don't know if it is.
