Wondering why times are missing?

50/50

When a cautious, anal retentive 27-year-old (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, his loudmouthed best pal (Seth Rogen) steps in to help out. The film walks the line between rude comedy and sentimental drama, and does a commendable job of finding the balance. It's basically a tearjerking bromance about two best friends facing down a deadly disease. There are some jokes about penises, then some tears, then a few more jokes about penises. Gordon-Levitt and Rogen handle the material with a light touch and some surprising depth. 99 minutes R.
