A. I just think that they're virtually identical movies from a basic standpoint. 50/50 is a disease movie like a relationship movie, first act is introducing the sickness, 2nd is dealing with it, 3rd is the resolution. Funny People does the same thing, but on a scale of Sandler's life instead of just the disease.

B. Objectively I think Funny People had better cinematography and composition.

C. 50/50 was very predictable indie-fare with a Hollywood end.

D. The marketing is the thing. Watch both trailers and listen to the music. 50/50 has dramatic music, Funny People is lighter. Funny People shows stand ups doing bits, which leads people to think it's a strong comedy when it wasn't. 50/50 makes it about the cancer. The expectations are set up very differently. So audiences go to 50/50 and it's not as dark as they thought, so they rave about it being serious and funny. Funny People is much darker, so people come out disappointed and angry. That bothers me.

Ultimately it's all opinion though.

Are you a movie buff?

Have you seen Ricky Gervais' Extras? The show his character stars in during the second year is on that level of terrible.

Yo teach>>>>>>>When the whistle blows. Have you seen the dvd extras? There's a few full Yo Teach scenes with sitcom cameras and a theme song and all. I wish they'd made a full episode.

Its 6 degrees in Denver.

I feel bad for some of my friends who live in Boulder because a gas line broke and half the city is without heat and its colder there.

That's what I went to college for, so like 75% of my classes were critically analyzing movies and movie related shit.

Ideally planning on turning that into writing for tv or something.
