      50/50 Reviews

      With an optimism that isn’t shrouded by a layer of saccharine artificiality, Levine’s film takes us through Adam’s stages of grief and delivers a light, affecting, modest, and enjoyable experience that deserves to be seen.

      50/50 is a gentle touch comedy. It's not wacky or zany, and while it is heartwarming, it's not syrupy.

      Rogen's Kyle is the kind of friend I want by my side when my health finally starts getting worse.

      Gordon-Levitt always suggests an actor with his heart in the right place and an urgent need to remind viewers of all the pain and tumult beneath the surface of things.

      A surprisingly low-key drama with humorous moments, this is an honest and heartfelt piece of work -- a straightforward but genuinely honest look at dealing with adversity.

      It's good "50/50" is the kind that stays with you, perhaps a generation from now being namechecked for comfort just as "Terms of Endearment" is in this film.

      Rogen is a funnyman who's growing up without losing any of his ribald charm.

      Its generic format and predictable narrative arc relegates the film to being a 'solid' date movie, at best a middling drama-comedy that will more than likely be quickly forgotten.

      Director Jonathan Levine manages to treat cancer with the respect it deserves whilst also showing the remarkable ability of humans to find laughter in the most heinous of circumstances.

      So wrapped up in Hollywood convention that not even Seth Rogen can lift this out of the Lifetime Movie for Hipsters aisle

      An intelligent film that does not aim to make you cry, but to present the harsh reality of a young man for whom being diagnosed with cancer at 27 years old is the last thing he expected. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Mar 14, 2018

      It's a truly moving story that, despite a tendency toward the facile, never relies on tricks to make us feel something.

      It isn't sentimental, schmaltzy or melodramatic, which isn't to say that it isn't touching, because it is; only you'll be smiling instead of breaking out the tissues.

      Cancer's guaranteed to shake your life up. What if you discovered you had a 50/50 chance to live? If your life's stuck in a rut getting cancer can actually be a good thing, and this movie shows why.

      Gordon-Levitt is so good he compensates for the film's lacks, even if he can't erase them... 50/50 isn't quite worthy of this performance, but that doesn't mean it isn't occasionally elevated toward something special by encompassing it.

      Rogen's vulgar, unexpected decency is quietly moving.

      Full Review | May 3, 2015

      It's a film about cancer, but it never succumbs to the morose trappings of its cinematic cousins ... it's done with such a subtle grace that it's easy to forget your heart is being tugged at by filmmakers.

      An honest, earnest and powerful look at a young person's battle with cancer.

      Even with all its faults, it's pretty difficult not to be won over.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jun 22, 2013

      It's a brave plan to make a cancer movie that's moving, uplifting and pant-wettingly funny. But against the odds, it's definitely a case of remission accomplished.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
