Funny People

Considering the talent involved, this should have been a much better movie– Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen (Knocked Up), Jonah Hill (Superbad), Eric Bana (Hulk, Black Hawk Down), Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore), Aziz Ansari (Parks & Recreation), Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation). Written and directed by Judd Apatow. This should have been so much better.

It’s the story of a comic (Sandler) who learns that he may not have very long to live. He takes a struggling comedian (Rogen) under his wing. This is Sandler giving his second-best performance of all time (the best is here) and I really wanted to like it. The first hour was fantastic, but it just falls apart after that.
