50/50 Movie Review

A touching film about a young man who goes through cancer. I feel the entire movie screams out tropes, grouchy old men who do drugs, young doctor, touching best friend, over protective mother, main character learning that his friends / family truly care and have their own problems. But it doesn’t fucking matter, because it’s well done and you like the characters. They’re awkward, they are kind, and they do a good job at pulling on your heartstrings as you root for Adam to make it at the very end. The best thing is that the few shining moments of comedy and the hilarity of it all shines through this film like a beacon, the moments of just awkwardness made me laugh and smile. That’s all I need to say about this movie and I would highly recommend it if you want to watch a somewhat serious movie with slight comedic undertones.
