I was SUPER skeptical of “50/50″ going in. I figured the title was pretty apt – that 50/50 was just about the chance I’d have of liking it.
I mean, a cancer comedy? To me, that just seemed like an insurmountable oxymoron. Those two things do NOT go together. Added to which my “Tearjerker Alert System” was going off like mad. DANGER! DANGER!
But, in light of my newfound responsibilities as a movie blogger, and in the wake of some extremely positive early reviews… I headed in to watch the story of a young man diagnosed with cancer, and his buddy who tries his best to help.
I’m glad I did.
