JUDD’S BEST MOVIE DON’T @ ME
BETTER THAN LA DOLCE VITA DON’T @ ME
Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
I don’t know if it’s that Adam Sandler is playing a dying character, or that Seth Rogan is miserable, that the idea of being a professional comedian is especially appealing, or that they just did a fine job mixing a serious situation with a lot of comedy while mixing in some showcase of humanity, particularly human values.
There are a couple of really good “finding self” tropes in this. It’s good to see “behind the curtain” of comedy. The cast is excellent, and not because he strayed from his typical Happy Madison group, but just that they clearly know what it is to be those people and were able to give excellent deliveries.
Anytime you’re dealing with a “character is dying” trope, it has to be handled a very particular way, and usually that is overly serious (“The Fault in Our Stars”), but adding humor allows the story to be more palatable (“Stranger Than Fiction”), but it requires extreme balance to not trivialize the death of the character (“Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”), and without being fantastic, this does an very good job of finding that balance, just with more “dick and fart” jokes.
I think this is a good watch for anyone who likes stand up or follows comedic actors (such as SNL actors).
Sometimes enjoyable, occasionally cringe-worthy.
Ira (Seth Rogen) is a struggling comic working at a sub shop. George (Adam Sandler) is a famous comedian and movie star who finds out that he’s got a rare form of leukemia and won’t live much longer, he’s put on experimental medicine to try to combat the illness. This revelation rocks George’s life. He’s made tons of money and has plenty of people to suck up to him, but that just isn’t enough. His world is falling down around him, all the mistakes he made have come back to haunt him. He tries to reconnect with the only girl he ever loved, Laura (Leslie Mann) and she doesn’t want to talk to him until he tells her that he’s sick. That plot line took up far too much of the movie.
George and Ira meet when George goes to one of the old comedy clubs he used to do stand up at and stands on stage without any material, talking about how he knows he’s bombing when he can hear people in the audience cough. George ends up hiring Ira as his assistant and their odd friendship/work relationship begins. Ira has always been a big fan of George and is spellbound by the limos, private planes, and the women George has gotten so used to.
Their relationship is at sometimes interesting, I’m not sure where Judd Apatow (the director) meant to go with this picture, he seems to get a little bit of everything, not enough of the good and too much time spent on the bad. Ira likes one of his neighbors, Daisy “Aubrey Plaza” and that was a fun relationship that the movie really neglected. By the end, it felt very underdeveloped. Most of the dialog feels improvised and very clunky. Judd Apatow was trying to convey something here that he just couldn’t in the end.
For what does work, this movie deserves a 6/10 rating. It’s a dramedy, anyone looking for one or the other will likely be disappointed.
Great adult black comedy from Apatow
George Simmons (Adam Sandler) is a rich famous jaded comedian who finds out that he dying from leukemia. He’s lonely and regrets his relationship with his ex Laura (Leslie Mann). Ira Wright (Seth Rogen) is a struggling young standup. One night, George makes a surprise appearance at the comedy club with Ira following him. George hires Ira to write for him and Ira becomes his best and possibly only friend.
Adam Sandler reunites with his former roommate and now writer/director Judd Apatow. He is playing a sadder angrier version of his persona. The use of real life old footage helps sell this character. The subject matter can be challenging and makes for some awkward moments. He’s a self-loathing character at the start. On the other hand, Seth Rogen is unadulterated adorableness. He’s the low man with his roommates Leo Koenig (Jonah Hill) and mildly-successful douche Mark Taylor Jackson (Jason Schwartzman). He is hilarious. I love his fake crying. And Daisy (Aubrey Plaza) is just as adorable.
This is overflowing with comedians. Sometimes it feels like they’re passing the torch. The story with Laura gets a little more awkward than necessary. It would be easier for Laura to be a single parent. Although the fight with Clarke (Eric Bana) is funny. This is growth for Apatow stretching out from the gross out outlandish humor or weed humor from Seth Rogen.
