Product Description

Offbeat comedy about a young man coming to terms with cancer. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Adam, a sweet-natured radio scriptwriter in his late twenties who is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer and given a 50/50 chance of survival. With the help of his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard), his best friend (Seth Rogen), his mother (Angelica Huston), and a trainee therapist at the cancer clinic (Anna Kendrick), Adam begins to discover what really matters in life.

(I hate putting spoilers in a review and I avoid doing so at all costs but I don't know how else to write this; but I'll try to minimise the damage as much as possible.)

This is a lovely film that had me laughing and crying throughout. I thought the actor who played Adam was very credible and convincing and did an excellent job of portraying his changing array of emotions. It was this sensitive depiction of his emotions that made the film so convincing and real. He also seemed so absolutely helpless and hopeless yet he still possessed huge strength when dealing with his girlfriend and his bleak future.
I also loved the way the film handled the emotions of those around him. At first I was angered at everyone's selfishness about his cancer and how they made a lot of how it was affecting them but then I realised that was what made the film special and that was its real theme. I loved when he found Kyle's book and knew undoubtedly that beneath the selfishness and bravado, Kyle was coping as best as he could. It also showed me that his family/friends didn't know how to cope and it showed their pain and awkwardness about his cancer. I loved the way the film dealt with his operation and the Pearl Jam background music made it all the more poignant.
This was a very moving and touching film that dealt with an awful subject in a very real and different way. I thoroughly enjoyed this and the humour lifted the intensity. Not a light bit of entertainment but very well done.

Adam is a 27 year old writer of radio programs and is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer.

With the help of his best friend, his mother, and a young therapist at the cancer centre, Adam learns what and who the most important things in his life are.....

Turning one of the most heaviest subject matters, Death, and coming to terms with loss, into one of the most beautiful, touching, and funny movies of the year, is an amazing feat.

It's not been a secret that for a few years now Levitt is one of the most brilliant actors in Hollywood today, and this furthers the proof. And while he is the 'strong' one in the movie, there are scenes that show him vulnerable and at his most weakest, that really get choking back the tears.

But there are also big laughs in this too, and sometimes those big laughs come as a sigh of relief, and of course they come courtesy of Rogen, who hasn't been this good in a very long time. The chemistry between the two leads is so strong, that you really believe that they have been friends for a long time.

The majority of the film is predictable, as is expected, but when a film has this much magnitude and impact, it doesn't really matter. There are the very sad parts, for example the character played by Matt Frewer is a small role, but leaves an effect on the whole picture, turning it into a more sombre affair there on in.

But despite its heavy subject matter and sombre feelings, there are some amazing punch in the air moments, the moments when certain characters get their dues and you think to your self 'thats exactly what I would have done'.

Extremely sad in places and hilariously funny on others, 50/50 ironically keeps a steady balance on the two and in turn makes this one of the best films of the year.

You really have to see this.

50/50 is a great film that masterfully mixes some genuine laughs together with some truly touching moments. As other reviews have stated, this film is about a young man's struggle with cancer.

What makes this film stand out for me personally was not the comedic elements, but the poignant heartfelt moments, such as when he tells his mother. It was these scenes that I truly appreciated, and it was done well as I was very much able to empathise. Gordon Levitt should also be commended for putting in a wonderful performance.

At times however, I felt the pace was a bit slow and Seth Rogen's character could have been better portrayed by a less stereotypical actor.

In summary however, if you want a great drama, with the occasional laugh, I highly recommend this film.

I'm going to get this out of the way first and foremost; does Rogen do anything other than the socially-awkward, pot-smoking slacker gig? Thankfully in 50/50 he's largely inconspicuous with Gordon-Levitt carrying (and making) this gentle comedy about one man's fight against cancer, and socially inept friends...

50/50 ain't going to win any awards nor will it tax your grey-matter to any great degree. Nonetheless, it is a nicely mawkish and heart-warming film; and it will have you biting your lip on occasions (damn you, I will not cry at anything with Seth Rogen in it). If it isn't enough for our man to be battling a disease with dubious odds of survival he's got a bevvy of strained & strange relationships to deal with in the form of family, friend and other half.

There isn't much more to be said for it really; suffice it to say, if you're looking for a night in with no surprises, humour, humanity, and thankfully less-than-saccharine plot then 50/50 fits the bill nicely.

This cool comedy about a 27 year old man diagnosed with a rare spinal cancer, manages to be very informative about Chemotherapy and related aspects, as well providing humour. Joseph Gordon Levitt presents committed characterisation as usual, as the guy with a fifty/fifty chance of survival, and Seth Rogan is great playing his contrasting best friend, who uses any opportunity as a chat up line. Outspoken and blustering he non the less is committed to helping his friend through the pain and onto recovery.
The nervous and charming young Therapist played by Anna Kendrick is still studying for her Doctorate and cannot help breaching the Patient-Doctor gap, to become Adam's (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) girl friend after his successful operation.
Adding to this comedy with serious undertones, Bryce Dallas Howard plays the Father with Dementia who thinks that he is having an affair with his own wife, Adam's Mother, played by Angelica Huston.
