It has likeable characters and some good jokes, which in itself is quite a feat in a comedy about cancer, but '50/50' doesn't always hit.

Some funny moments and overall a light hearted, entertaining film. Not very rewarding movie overall though.

50/50 is not a comedy, it is a heartfelt movie about the struggle a friend has to go through when fighting cancer at a difficult time.

We live in a time when the word cliche itself has become a cliche and on it's light I would like to say that 50/50 is the most cliched film I have seen in the recent times, perhaps after Jurassic World. The film's cliches range from the nauseating sexism of Seth Rogen movies, rom-com cliches and cliches of protagonist suffering from diseases and not to mention parent-child cliches. Anyways, 50/50 does have some touching moments and fine acting from Anna Kendrick and Joseph Gordon-Levitt .

The movie handles a very serious and sensitive topic in a light-hearted, funny manner. All of the performances by the actors are really good especially Joesph's and Seth's. The film is just really good, one of my favourites actually.

A semi-autobiographical account of director Levine that excellently deals with the sensitive topic of cancer by carefully tightroping between comedy and drama. 50/50 never gets too serious or depressing, but never too comical or flippant creating a dramedy that induces tears, laughter, gasps and applause.

One of the hearth warmth bromance of the last decade.

Grade: A+. Phenomenal film. It really played through my emotions the whole time. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was a great choice for this role and nailed it in every way possible.

Anna Kendrick is unbelievably hot in this. Outside of Kendrick, this is pretty good, but pretty forgettable at the same time.

Moving and funny, 50/50 is a great vehicle for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anna Kendrick.

50/50 is an honest film that effortlessly balances the serious, dramatic portions of the film with some hilarious comedy.

Really fun movie sad at time but the change in tone is amazingly done cast is spot on for the most part could of done on the role of the best friend but Seth still did great the lighting is very good reflecting the tone at the time of the movie it's one of the few movie that feels like you're peeking in someone's life and it's holds your attention for the whole run time

Good-hearted, touching and funny, 50/50 skillfully tackles a rather difficult topic of cancer. The lead character Adam, played impeccably by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, had gone through being diagnosed, chemotherapy, surgery and finally surviving cancer. 50/50 draws on how the world of a man diagnosed with cancer get rocked, goes through a tumultuous ride of highs and lows and brings the best of emotions from family and friends. A definitive watch.

What can i say about this movie that hasn't already been said. It takes the topic of cancer and shows it a humanizing light. Seth rogen is the side character and surprisingly he works well with this movie. It doesn't feel like any of his other movies. Joseph Gordon Levitt is great. He's a leading actor, the best parts of this movie are with him. The love put into this movie is shown.

Seth Rogen's humour is starting to wear thin, but aside from that, this was pretty good.

earnest and powerful look at a young person's battle with cancer

Just finished 50/50 and this is hands down one of if not my favorite performance from JGL. He gives a masterful performance of a young man who's life is turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis. The raw emotion he delivers in several scenes is so good, especially in the scene where he drives for the first time. The supporting cast was very good as well especially his mother. Anjelica Huston plays an excellent, nagging, worrisome mother. I will be owning this
