An unexpected chemistry between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen keeps the movie on a wave of delighting humor.
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.

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 .
