Damien Robertssaid on Monday, October 17, 2011 6:39:15 PMWith very few strong comedies this year I expect this film to pick up a few nominations come award season. Really strong story, really strong acting.

Here is my take on this beautiful film.
Brentsaid on Monday, October 10, 2011 8:42:49 PMhey richard, huge fan of yours! do you think 50/50 will finally be the movie that gives gordon-levitt an oscar nod. i have been such a huge fan of his ever since i saw the lookout. if i remember correctly i think that you also enjoyed that movie as well when i watched your review on tv years ago. i feel like he is very underrated, even though he was terrible in the gi joe movie, but lets face it that movie is terrible, and everyone makes mistakes. ive almost forgiven him for that, hopefully 50/50 will renew my faith.
nonyasaid on Sunday, October 09, 2011 11:39:18 PMI believe Anna Kendrick is the most attractive woman in Hollywood right now by a good margin, just comes across as sincere and is beautiful.
I liked the movie, surprisingly strong performances and excellent casting with what must have been good direction bring out a solid movie, it's sad, it's about cancer so if you go in thinking it's a Seth Rogan comedy don't, it's funny in the honest stupid way that ppl handle cancer but once outside of that it's definitely sad and brings out the emotions.
my only complaints are that it was a little light and a little by the numbers in hindsight, I wished it had been 15 minutes longer and a little more complicated, the foundation for the later relationship seemed flawed and never felt like it was established why save that one was sick.
that might be enough but a little time spent getting a little more insight into what one another saw in one another would have been better.
give the movie a solid 8 out of 10 and an 8.5 genre rating.
