THE ODDS

50/50 (2011)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Loosely-based on the life of Will Reiser, friend of Seth Rogen, who also produced and starred in this movie. It shows a different perspective of cancer – mostly about the social aspects and dealing with it and not just the harsh parts about chemotherapy.

How ironic is that you often have to comfort others even though you’re devastated and broken down inside?

Adam Lerner: I don’t smoke. I don’t drink. I recycle.

It shook me when Adam broke down in the car the night before his operation. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really did good here and Seth Rogen is honestly funny as his friend dealing with his buddy having cancer. I thought that bathroom scene was nice.
