I liked it except for Sandler

This was a good movie. Though, there are parts that are not so much funny and are rather serious and you are forced to sit through some dramatic moments that you wouldn't expect in a movie that is entitled: "Funny People." Rogan plays a great character who is funny and is very relatable to the crowd. Sadler came off more as the villain, in this film. There wasn't too much good in him. Even when you tried to feel bad for him, it wasn't possible due to his personality that was portrayed. Recommended but be aware that it's not slap stick comedy: it's got a message and it's a tough one to digest if you're not a serious person who just wanted to see a comedy film and got this instead.

Funny People

This should be an excellent mix of Adam Sandler humor and Seth Rogan humor. Will be more than enough for any comedy junkie.

I don't get why people thought this movie was funny. First there was to many **** jokes and over use of the f bombs which got old after while. The movie dragged on but it got decent towards the end. I recommend watching this on video. If you like **** jokes, you'll like this movie. The Hangover movie is a much better movie.

Funny People Review

I have been a huge fan of Judd Apatow for years. From Freaks and Geeks to Undeclared. From The 40 Year Old Virgin to Knocked Up. I think that this film is him best work to date. I loved the beginning with the home videos of Adam Sandler doing crank phone calls all the way to the end. The stand-up throughout is hillarious. The main attractions of Seth Rogan, Sandler, Jonah Hill and Leslie Mann are absolutely perfectly cast. Even the supporting roles are excellent especially the girl from Parks and Recreation. If I were to rate this movie I would give it two thumbs up or a 9.5 out of 10. A hillarious piece of work. I loved it.
