I went into 50/50 thinking "A comedy about cancer... That doesn't sound like the best of ideas." thankfully the film really doesn't play out as your typical Seth Rogen fueled comedy. 50/50 is the story of a honest guy dealing with a horrible situation. Surprisingly the film does a pretty good job of finding some humor in the situation and presenting it in a very human way. The kind of way that makes it feel like real people dealing with a terminal disease, not over dramatized Hollywood drama. At the same time this is the kind of movie that makes you want to call your mom just to tell her you love her. The relationships that are built and destroyed between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the characters around him feel very genuine, and though some of the people in his life are pretty terrible to him, it feels genuine. I can't say this is the "feel good movie of the year" in fact at times it can be a down right bummer. But it is well written, well acted and overall a very well done film. Its definitely something that should be watched and could easily give people a new understanding to a experience that really no one should have to go through.
