Apatow Takes Detour From Usual Funny Stuff in Funny People
Firs thing's first: Is the movie as funny as Knocked Up and 40 Year Old Virgin? No. Not even close. In fact, it ends up making the crude dialogue even more uncomfortable than in previous films because there's no laughter to release the tension. Adam Sandler, though great in serious roles, wasn't given the opportunity to really be at his best (dramatically speaking). And Seth Rogan, it seemed like, was just along for the ride of a guarantee success and there were very few ad-libbed scenes where the actors could really strut their comedic stuff. On a possitive note, the movie had a great message (though the characters make many mistakes in the process), and was very tender with the deep issues it deals with just as Apatow has proven himeslf faithful to do. My guess is that if you're not expecting 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up, you'll likely enjoy this movie. Go into it expecting a drama, not a comedy.Was this review helpful?
