It’s incredible how the film manages humor and drama, one never betraying the other. It sounds crude to call 50/50 the funniest cancer film I’ve ever seen, but it’s also the deepest. Who hasn’t found themselves laughing despite times of immense pain and heartache? Tragedy manifests itself in a great many ways. Humor is one of our greatest tools to vent and combat the uncertain. Unique, touching and striking a very deep chord, 50/50 will resonate strongly regardless of whether you’ve been affected by cancer or you’re lucky enough to say that it hasn’t.
