The so-called "cancer comedy" 50/50 is actually much more than that. It's an incredibly moving drama that just so happens to have a few funny dick jokes sprinkled in. As I noted at the time I saw it, I noted it's the movie FUNNY PEOPLE probably wanted to be. It's packed with amazing performances from Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who had only two weeks to prepare for the role as he filled in for James McAvoy who left a few days into filming), Anna Kendrick and Angelica Huston. If you're up for a good cry, I've got exciting news: we're giving away 100 tickets to advance screenings of 50/50 in 10 cities!

If you live in Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, NYC, Philly, San Francisco, Seattle or Washington, DC then you're in luck. The screenings will all take place on August 30th, with the exception of Austin, which will be on August 29th and all you need to do is click this JoBlo.com ticket link, select your city and you'll be good to go. Afterward, make sure you hit us up and let you know what you think.

My mom has cancer so I wonder if this movie will hit a nerve with me or not. But it looks outstanding and given that this based off on the writer's own experience it obviously has a happy ending. Maybe I'll even take my mom with me so this could continue to give her hope.

Looking Forward to it

I've been looking forward to this film for a while now, being JGL is my favorite actor and all. The subject matter seems to be difficult in terms of making a comedy movie with cancer but I'm sure they handle it delicately.

Nice

Got my tickets, looking forward to it. At the same time, though, I definitely do too have some reservations about the film, in the whole subject of cancer...

Got my passes. I was debating seeing this, as the whole cancer thing is a rough subject for me, but I'll give it a shot.

I'm gonna be honest here... That was me who accidentally gave you a thumbs down. I felt like I should make that known. It was supposed to be a thumbs up.

Saw a screening 2 weeks ago

It's good. It's not amazing and Seth Rogen does virtually no stretching but Gordon Levitt is fantastic, they nail a lot of the hospital scenes and the film is generally pretty satisfying.
