Funny People did not live up to the hype the trailer brought on, it was dry humor. There where funny scene, not to many though. I have to say if you like crude humor, and dry humor then this is the movie for you. I would not recommend seeing it. It could have been better, and shorter it just dragged on at the end.

Typical Adam Sandler movie of late...has a lot of cheap attempt at humor (ironic that it's about comedians) by using the male sex organ as the highlight of the punch lines. This movie therefore qualifies for the pre-puberty age crowd level of humor.
On a scale of $7 to $12 I give it $7 but I wouldn't even pay that much to see knowing what it was. Another dissapointment...Adam Sandler movies are on my "don't buy" list from now on.

I'm torn with this film. One on hand you have Sandler playing a conflicted well-thought out character for the first 2/3 of the film and then inexplicably he starts behaving like he does in Billy Madison and the film goes down a road that could have ended before it even began. It hate to say this but Leslie Mann was completely unecessary in this film. The movie should have focused on the dynamic between Sandler and Rogen's characters exclusively rather than diverging into a rather lame attempt at romantic comedy. However, I will say that Seth Rogen is getting progressively better and more comfortable with the camera, which is a nice change from him constantly checking his position like he did in Knocked Up.
The film does have a lot of funny moments and some good stand-up but if you haven't seen it already you can wait for the movie to come out on DVD, then you can skip the nonsense and save yourself an hour of disappointment.

I thought this was going to be a funny movie. Depressing and just so NOT FUNNY. 2 1/2 hours dragged out way tooo much. DONT GO! Not worth the money at all!

The movie was not funny. Language was unnecessarily coarse and vulgar. The plot was implausible. The movie was also way too long. Not a comedy movie at all. Don't waste your money.
