Great Movie. Resonates long after it ends.

When I first saw the preview for 50/50, I thought it was going to be an excellent movie, with some humor mixed in. After the movie came out and I read the reviews, I was worried because I was expecting every other word to be a curse word and there will be a lot of sex scenes. I decided to go see it anyway.
I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, there were some curses uttered by the characters, especially from Seth Rogen’s character, Kyle, but it wasn’t anything that I wasn’t used to. Additionally, there was only one sex scene, and it wasn’t much.
There were some funny moments in the film to help lighten the mood, but for the most part, this was definitely a serious film that makes the audience feels what Adam has to go through as he tries to cope with the disease.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of my favorite actors, does a masterful job of playing Adam and Seth Rogen does an excellent job of playing Kyle.
This is one movie I definitely recommend.

I cried periodically throughout this movie-- I am a crier-- but I didn't realize going in that it was going to be quite so sad as it was. The previews showed a movie with a dark theme but lighthearted approach, when in actuality, it was hard and dark and emotional the whole way through.

This movie is fantastic, its a great comedy all the way thru even though its about someone who gets cancer i stayed in a good mood the whole movie it kept me and my family laughing i was there with my step mom that went thru cancer and she was even cracking up the whole time not a depressing or sad movie one bit. I suggest that you go see this movie while you can its a great one makes you leave the thearte in a better mood. Great soundtrack throughout the movie too id like to buy it when it comes out. the picture quality and the backgrounds where the movie was filmed was fabolous. all around this was a great movie go see it now!

One of my favorite films in a long time. I loved every minute, It's both great comedy and real and deeply moving. It's a great cast. Seth Rogan is always Seth Rogan, and that continues to work for him in this film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was fantastic, hit all the emotional moments and his comic timing and delivery was flawless. Angelica Houston and Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard - all perfect.
