Most of the movies I want to see on the big screen eventually pass me by. As was the case with 50/50. But... I finally saw it and I enjoyed it as much as I was expecting to do!
I love how it dealt with horrible issues in such a human and humorous way. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt does an amazing job, of course.
If you get a chance to see the extras you'll see how the men behind this movie are not only a very close group of friends, but have actually lived this story. That definitely shows in the end result. Enjoy!
