(aka Mr. Moviefone) says '50/50' is a "cancer comedy...a weird mix and I did like this movie a lot."
What happens: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's
character is diagnosed with cancer at 27, and his doctor says his chances of beating it are "50/50." Seth Rogen
plays his best friend and together they try to laugh their way through this tough time. "50/50" is based on a true story about Seth's real-life best friend Will Reiser
who wrote the film. They joined Natasha Curry in the studio
a few weeks ago to talk about that experience and what it was like to make a "cancer comedy."
Russ does not give you the same odds for liking "What's Your Number"
starring Anna Faris. He says, "This movie wants to be "Bridesmaids"...it's not a 10th as funny...and really I was very disappointed."
What happens: Faris
stars as a woman who reads an a magazine article that says if you go over 20 sexual partners, you've probably missed 'the one.' So she goes back over all her old boyfriends to see if there's one in there worth re-visiting.
