  • It's the work of a major talent. Apatow scores by crafting the film equivalent of a stand-up routine that encompasses the joy, pain, anger, loneliness and aching doubt that go into making an audience laugh. show more

  • Funny People is a true brass ring effort, a reach for excellence that takes big risks. It's 146 minutes, with a story that's more European in feeling than American. show more

  • Funny People nimbly intersperses humor and reflection. It is a rumination on mortality, fame and life choices, punctuated with Apatow's trademark raunchy humor. show more

    LOVE IT!! It is definitely not a typical Adam Sandler/Seth Rogan movie but once you get passed that and used to them using dark humor you will love this movie. this movie is an emotional rollercoaster!

    Uneven and convoluted plot. Sad as much as funny. Shallow people, wasted lives, welcome to the USA. It was hard to keep with it until the end.
