Funny People (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 | 1:56 AM

Genre: Comedy/Drama/Romance

Starring: Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman

Although a stand up comedian's life may seem to be fun, it's actually as normal as anyone else. George Simmons (Sandler) is a famous stand-up comedian and actor who has been diagnosed with a rare blood disease with a mere 8% chance of survival. His life's mistakes and blunders start flashing in front of him and he realises its too late to rectify anything. He hires Ira (Rogen) to write jokes for him and to be his assistant. They start developing a close relationship and George finally starts seeing more meaning in his life. He tries to resurrect his doomed married life with Laura (Mann), his ex-wife amongst other things to redeem his mistakes. The movie is quite boring, slow and stretched. The little bit of humour that is present is quite lame and doesn't help in making the movie any interesting. The concept and story is good, but could have been explored in a far more interesting and exciting manner.

Thumbs up: Decent story
Thumbs down: Long and boring

Rating: 6.1/10
