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.

Any sort of new insight into comedy's darker themes, to say nothing of life's, eludes Funny People. Instead Sandler and Rogen and the rest are left to wander aimlessly, with tedious comedy gigs, an even more tedious faux sitcom and relatively vapid relationships masquerading as a plot. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Even the most forced, artificial episodes in Funny People ring oddly true, because George's life -- the obscene wealth, the loneliness, the fame -- is odd. Perhaps not since "Sunset Boulevard" have the wages and eccentricities of celebrity been depicted with such tough, almost perverse honesty. Full Review

USA Today
Funny People nimbly intersperses humor and reflection. It is a rumination on mortality, fame and life choices, punctuated with Apatow's trademark raunchy humor. Full Review

Slate
Apatow answers to no one. His worst enemy as a director is his unwillingness to linger in the dark places from which his comedy springs. Full Review
