News & Interviews for 50/50
Critic Reviews for 50/50
There couldn't be a more serious subject, yet Gordon-Levitt and especially Rogen (who co-produced the movie) make the comedy seem both spontaneous and organic.
Add 50/50 to your want to see list. And then make an appointment for your annual physical with your doctor.
Still, it's Gordon-Levitt's choices that continue to impress. Sure, he owned one of the most jaw-dropping sequences in last summer's blockbuster Inception. But the actor remains drawn to profoundly human-scale hurts and quiet triumphs.
Gordon-Levitt is an agreeably undemonstrative actor who plays well opposite the burbly Rogen.
Audience Reviews for 50/50
The attempt to tackle the story of a young man's cancer diagnosis with dosages of juvenile humor could easily have backfired. Director Levine finds just the right tone between the tragic and the funny, the optimism and pessimism. His protagonist duo Gordon-Levitt and Rogen work great together creating a genuinely realistic friendship on screen, which is no small feat. Especially in the last act of the story Levine does everything right, from the music, to the camera work and solution. Optimism has to prevail and it will!
This is a really outstanding film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives a mesmerizing performance as a
I put off watching this due to Seth Rogan being in it...despite my admiration for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I shouldn't have waited, it was soooo good! This was an excellently done, off-beat, indie movie on a serious subject of life, and death. Wry humor out of a bad situation. Nice chemistry from the cast. Even Seth Rogen's crude buddy role is quite funny. Gordon-Levitt has his quiet charm that's perfect for this. There's no over-the-top drama in it; the plot just tracks the journey of a nice guy's cancer diagnosis, through treatment, and how he deals with it all. Wonderful film!! Kudos!!
