Synopsis


Funny People
Judd Apatow casts his former real-life roommate Adam Sandler as George Simmons, a comic superstar who learns in the movie's opening scene that he suffers from a rare blood disorder that will likely kill him within a year. This news gives him the impulse to go back out and work on his standup, something he hasn't done in years thanks to the massive success of his movie career. At a club, he meets struggling standup Ira Wright (Seth Rogen), takes a shine to him, and hires the young man both to write jokes and to be his personal assistant. Ira, who's been sleeping on a friend's pull-out couch and working a day job at a deli, enjoys the glimpse into the superstar lifestyle, but soon the protégé discovers how selfish and egocentric his mentor really is. Jason Schwartzman and Jonah Hill, and a host of famous standup comics make cameo appearances as themselves. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Funny People? Should be called Sad People

    Stopped watching it after 20 minutes. Far from a funny movie, Adam Sandler is a popular comedian with a terminal illness...are you laughing yet? This movie is far from a comedy, based on the actors in the movie this was not what I was expecting. Maybe I'll try watching it again when I'm not in the mood to laugh.

    Adam Sandler's worst movie!

    This was a really bad movie with maybe two laughs. I'm a Adam Sandler fan but this is just like they were bored and had nothing really to do and decided to bore everyone else. I would rather watch grass grow or hang out at the DMV giving my number away when it got close over and over!

    Honestly first time seeing this, i didn't like it. Then ended up giving it another try and loved it. First time seeing it i was just expecting a typical Seth or Adam movie but don't get me wrong it is still hilarious but also has a little dark side to it.

    This movie is more drama than comedy, but still has its funny moments. The cast is great, especially Seth Rogen (I'm a fan.) A really good film.

    I bought this movie when it was on sale. Movies that Adam Sandler are in are for the most part pretty good.
