Honestly, I think this is one of the best drama/comedy films I have seen in a very long time. The cast is perfect and Joseph Gordon-Levitt shines.

Great performances by both young actors. A very realistic approach to cancer with the lighthearted comical relief to ease the pain. Oh yea... someone needs to push his GF down the stairs (what a bi**h)

This movie is one to watch, if you have time on your hands. It's a brilliant continuation of the popular "Cancer survival" genre that seems to be sweeping the screen world. Though the movie covers a very serious topic, it still manages to remain humerous throughout. That said, I have seen few movies that are more predictable than this one. This element reduced the viewing experience for me, so I'm giving it 3 stars.

A solid comedy-drama about a man facing cancer that handles the seriousness with enough humor to make for an enjoyable film. This is all thanks to the performance of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who probably turns in his best performance. The film's only down parts are Seth Rogen doing the Seth Rogen Schtick - loud, cursing, pot-smoking, obnoxious character he is in everything he's in. Also, given Gordon-Levitt's age and the need for a love interest, Anna Kendrick is the world's youngest therapist in a completely unbelievable role. But other than those drawbacks, 50/50 is still a good watch.

50/50 review

Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is diagnosed of a rare cancer that he researches as “50/50” and informs the people he loves like Rachel (Howard), Kyle (Rogen) and his parents. He visits a psychologist Katherine "Katie" McCay (Anna Kendrick). He is 27 and divulges it to his new friends who are in chemo Alan (Philip Baker Hall) and Mitch (Matt Frewer). Rachel was late in picking up Adam in the hospital. Kyle discovers Rachel cheating in an art gallery. Adam undergoes a surgery with all his loved ones supporting him. Screenplay was radiant with the following lines: Katherine – “You can't change your situation. The only thing that you can change is how you choose to deal with it.” Diane – “I want you to know that I smothered him because I love him.” A well casted film about family, friends...

In just how many movies is Seth Rogen going to play sidekick buddy to someone with a death sentence? It seems like this movie has already been done with Funny People, but that movie was so terrible. Maybe Rogen felt bad about the direction of that fiilm and wanted to remake it. Anyway, I'll go see it if only to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt .
