Movie Review: 50/50 - Metro US

Movie Review: 50/50

Genre: Comedy

Director: Jonathan Levine

Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick


Cancer is no laughing matter, everyone knows that.

But 50/50, the story of Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) a clean living guy diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, breaks taboos left and right.

Luckily it’s tempered with great performances, a smart script and real emotion.

There’s not a false moment thanks to a script written by Will Reiser, the real-life inspiration for the story. Reiser — along with actors Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick and Seth Rogen — find just the right balance between mortality, romance and cancer jokes in a script that will have you laughing and crying at the same time.
