How can you make a movie about a 27-year old man having bone-marrow cancer funny but yet serious enough to sincerely feel the pains the main characters are going through…Well 50/50 does master this balance perfectly throughout the entire movie. Gordon-Levitt and Rogan are a perfect couple making the severity of cancer at a young age more “bearable” with laughs, pick-up lines and sedatives. Anna Kendrick’s acting of a insecure new-on-the-job person (similar as in Up in the Air) is really sweet to watch…Great movie, very worth watching.

The Good

  • Feel-good-and-bad dramedy
  • Great chemistry between JGL and Seth Rogan

The Bad

  • Could have been more courageous in the end
  • Seth Rogan should try and break out of his shell (i.e. not always play the same character)
