Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: "50/50" takes the hackneyed convention of illness-driven melodrama and reinvigorates it with honesty, clear-eyed compassion and unsentimental wit.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, September 30, 2011
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.
- Bob Mondello, NPR, Friday, September 30, 2011
Fresh: Emotionally honest even when it's going for big laughs and filled with lived-in visual detail, it's raunchy and touching without ever being crude or mawkish, a small, sharp comic jewel with a big heart.
- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, September 29, 2011
"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.

JGL is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors, and even more so after watching 50/50. He plays the part of a cancer patient down to a tee, and added with Seth Rogan's comedy the movie can go from sad to funny in a split second.......and it all just WORKS!
