Plot: A big shot actor/comedian (Sandler) finds out he has a rare form of leukemia. He hires a young comedian (Rogen) to write jokes for him and be his assistant while trying to deal with a slim chance of living.

Who’s It For? If you’ve followed Apatow, Rogen and Hill in the past, you know what to expect. It’s funny one-liners throughout. There’s a little more drama than usual, but not as much as you’d think when you know Sandler is fighting for his life.  If you’re thinking this is a broad Sandler comedy, look elsewhere.

Expectations: I’m a huge fan of Aaptow and constantly forget that he had nothing to do with Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I Love You, Man because they are quality knock-offs, of the new kind of comedy Apatow has created/reinvented. I was looking forward to Funny People, but I was worried about the running time. It seemed this would be another version of Tom Hanks’ Punchline which has really grown on me over the years.
