      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.

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

      This film leaves a strange taste in the mouth.

      a good movie with a moderate sense of daring that ultimately spends too much time telling the wrong story

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Oct 10, 2011

      Scene by scene, 50/50 can be both amusing and moving, with the tightly wound Gordon-Levitt and the boundaryless Rogen forming an oddly complementary pair. But as a whole the movie never quite coheres.

      Fact-inspired yet unpersuasive, transforming neurofibrosarcoma into a lucky break -- a short cut to a more purposeful life, complete with an attractive age-appropriate cancer therapist to replace the unfaithful girlfriend.

      The truly outrageous idea, that you can use being gravely ill to get sympathy hookups for yourself and your friends - as underlined in the movie's original, better title, "I'm With Cancer" - is given short shrift.

      Neither the actor nor the filmmakers can get under Adam's skin, despite all the close-ups and the moodily shot scenes filled with the kind of movie silence that feels more like the groping of an uncertain screenwriter than of a man facing his mortality.

      To the extent that 50/50 works, it because of Gordon-Levitt, one of my favorite actors.

      An edgy concept, promising director, and a fine cast done in by bromides.

      My reaction to everything that happens in 50/50 was "Why don't they just walk out?" But nobody did, so I did it for them.

      This film could use a lot more affliction and a lot less cure.

      That leaves it to Gordon-Levitt to take on the emotional weight of the film. And while he's always convincing, the surrounding story elements make for a less than resonant experience.
