      With Gordon-Levitt, Rogen, and Kendrick, the odds of this being a good movie is better than 50/50 :)

      At some point I just had to stop watching. Despite the good performance of the lead actor, the characters surrounding him are just horrible: starting with a shockingly unempathetic doctor giving Adam his diagnosis, to a girlfriend who (predictably) struggled to commit to their relationship once he got sick, to a best friend who constantly talks about sex and who drops the news on Adam that his girlfriend has been cheating on him (primarily celebrating it as a personal victory) and then just leaves them to work through it. How so many people can actually appreciate this movie is simply beyond me.

      50/50 does a good job of showing how extensively illnesses like cancer affect not only the person who is sick, but everyone around them. The film tries to lighten the mood with jokes here and there, but the power of this film is its slow, overwhelmingly sobering effect.

      Filme emocionante, com boas atuações, alívio cômico que funciona. Recomendo bastante.

      Really good movie with drama and comedy. It's a raunchy sad love story pretty much. His best friend cracks me up.

      Great good movie with an awesome message throughout... Also really like that this was based on a true story 👍

      As someone who's partner is going through cancer treatment at the moment I found this movie, for whatever reason, extremely helpful for me right now. I'm very very happy to have randomly come across it. ❤️❤️❤️

      There was a perfect balance of raunchy comedy, and bittersweet drama that will hit all the feels. We all need to laugh in our most trying moments.

      I can't believe it's taken me till 2023 to watch this. The comedy-drama tackles a difficult topic while taking you on a rollercoaster of emotions that are conveyed beautifully.

      Es una película donde cuenta de manera perfecta la vida de una persona en el comento, donde se requiere más ayuda de sus seres más queridos para poder superar esos obstáculos, junto con una historia de romance contada de una manera que el público no la vea forzada, con un final más que bonito.

      So slow paced, uninteresting movie. I had no emotions watching this other than boringness.

      50/50 is an emotional exploration of friendship, love and sickness that is simultaneously funny as its potently serious, and while it could have gone even deeper in certain scenes, it's supremely well-acted and incredibly focused.

      One of the best films I've ever seen. It has heart for days.

      Good movie. JGL and Rogan formed a great chemistry. The movie is sad and good but also gives the element of comedy to cope with the dark tones.

      Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a young man who lives healthy and plays by the rules, which somehow makes his cancer diagnosis and the grim prognosis that follows all the more difficult for him to come to grips with. 50/50 is probably the funniest movie about cancer that's ever hit the screen and what makes it work is the fact that the humor feels real – never has applying ointment to a fresh wound been so funny. Gordon-Levitt is solid in lead role, showing an understandably wide range of emotions as he tackles the reality of his own mortality, and Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick give solid supporting performances (both seem to just play themselves, but that's okay). Despite the fact that it's horribly predictable from the start and that it sticks closely to the standard Hollywood formula, 50/50 at least has the courage to tackle a difficult subject with a degree of levity.

      The best movie i have watched. And the only movie i have cried to so far.

      Aug 9, 2022

      lots of tearjerker moments. some funny moments (mostly seth rogen duh). kinda slow at times but still worth a watch. provokes some interesting questions about the ethics and mechanics of a budding potential romance between a therapist and their [ex-]patient, esp as i have found myself in a similar situation when i was vulnerable with a supportive person in the past

      50/50 is really important com-drama film is really well written and directing about cancer which is the ultimate fear of death in America.

      Ok i guess I'm or was on a rom-com spree. But this hit hard. Joseph Gordon Levitt starring 50/50 turns out to be a solid movie with equal amounts of humor, realism and despair. The realism depicted is pretty fresh. Certain character scenes done are exactly how you'd react when someone you care about gets hurt. How one can be ignorant to be the people who care them. Anna Kendrik is in this and she's just adorable and she's a med student so thats an automatic win for me. Wish we could have had a bit more of her. The death and that despair has been handled perfectly it makes you cry at the perfect moments. Joseph Gordon Levitt really made me think what would happen if I were in that situation and how I'd have to handle it. Seth Rogen is equal part good and equally on the nose but he provides a good balance to the movie. Yeah, this movie is pretty good. I RECOMMEND to watch it. No regrets. Thanks for reading. See you later✌
