What exacerbates the ego-driven piece is the not-so-obvious multiple cameos of real-life celebrities. It comes across as Apatow bragging about how many famous people he knows.

Stand-up saga has a foul mouth but brains and heart, too.

Proof positive that when bad things happen to funny people, they might not be all that funny anymore.

Not exactly a movie about dying of laughter but close to it, Apatow's pot luck mock morbid meditation on mortality, punchlines and male anatomy jokes, is strangely as much about the cutting off of life as castration anxiety issues.
