50/50 Movie Review


Adam has a rare form of cancer. A sincere look at how ones deals with a 50/50 death sentance.

Expectations going in:

I have been waiting to see this movie all summer long. I mean…how could a movie with Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon Levitt not be good?

My take:

Everything I hoped for and more.

Very raw…very real…very sad…and yet still very funny.

I did some major self reflection while watching this movie.

Things you should know going in:

The movie was written by Seth Rogan’s real life friend Will Reiser who found out he had the rare form spinal cancer referenced in the movie 6 years ago.

Make sure to bring:

Kleenex. You will cry.

You will like it if:

  1. You are a fan of Seth Rogan and the characters he plays in every movie – the seemingly lazy pot smoking/drinking friend who surprises you in the end.

  2. You like a good “bro”mance movie

  3. You want to do some serious refection on your own life.

Watch out for:

Anna Kendrick who plays the therapist = rising star!

Would I go with my mom:

Yes! My mother was advised by yours truly she must see this movie.

Good date movie?

I would say this movie is a little heavy for a first date.

Will I buy it?
