Funny People New DVD Release 11.24.09

Funny People

Starring: Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana
Directed by Judd Apatow
Rated R
Run Time 146 mins
Genre: Comedy/ Drama
4 out of 5 frames

Adam Sander heads up this Judd Apatow comedy/ drama as an aging comedian George Simmons, that has been diagonised with a life threatening illness. He takes on a young comedian, Ira Wright (Seth Rogen) to be a companion in his last days. When he gets word that he is going to be fine, George sets out to correct past decisons that have haunted him.

Although this runs a tad on the long side and some scenes drag on, there are so many funny moments and excellent appereances by comedians young and old.

Things to watch for: The who’s who of comedy. Suprise guest appearances by those who you would never expect to be in a Judd Apatow movie.

Rent it or buy it: If you’re fan of Apatow or Sandler, this is a must have for your collection.

  1. I would have liked this film so much more its just that I think they needed to shed off probably about 20-30 minutes in order to make it great! But instead its ok.
