Fresh: In other hands, Adam might well be hard to take. But as the comedy in 50/50 turns darker, Gordon-Levitt, who's maybe the most natural, least affected actor of his generation, makes prickly plenty engaging.

"50/50" does a fine job dealing with such a tough subject. Seth Rogen acts the same as he usually does but it's Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance that stands out. Most of the film is depressing but there are a few funny moments. It does a great job showing how relationships between people change when one is going through very rough times.

Great balance between drama and humor. Seth brings the humor of course.

Joseph Gordon Levitt saves the film with his serious, fairly subtle- but ultimately functional- performance. Apart from that, it is hit and mediocre, with an emphasis on the mediocre, involving in particular a very uneven, eventually unconvincing, treatment of the subject matter, namely cancer. But, not without humour, not without emotion and not without merit. It just could do better.
