50/50 brings together an actor I really appreciate (Gordon-Levitt) with an actor I can find a bit grating (Rogen). They kind of work together.
It follows a pair of friends as one of them undergoes cancer treatment. It's funny at times but also (Unexpectedly because of the presence of Rogen) dark and sad at others. The parents in this film made the biggest impression on me. The romance bit fell flat for me. The anger at facing cancer felt the most real, and I wish some of the other bits had been trimmed away. 5/10.
