When will I learn

Funny People is all about a comedian who discovers he's dying. This and his friendship with Ira make him rethink a lot of his life. I expected some dark comedy here. I like Adam Sandler in serious roles generally. However, I need to face up to the fact that Judd Apatow movies generally don't do it for me.

This movie drug on and on. And all the comedians trying out there mostly bad bits on eachother made me cringe. Only a 1 from me. (The scenes with the doctor did make me crack a smile.)

  1. Ick I didn't like this one either. Except, like you said, the scenes with the doctor. "Were you sad when you died at the end of Die Hard?" LOL. But other than that, I thought it was a really weird movie. Eric Bana was kinda funny too. Judd Apatow is hit or miss for me. Pineapple Express & Knocked Up were AWFUL, but I liked Superbad and The 40yo Virgin. I think all his movies run about 40 minutes too long.
