Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star in “50/50” as best friends dealing with Gordon-Levitt’s character’s cancer diagnosis. The film is based on a true story, which makes it even sadder.  Seth Rogen is great and has some definite quoteable lines. Gordon-Levitt is flawless and is so cute even with his little bald head. He really makes you feel for his pain. Also the clear standout star of the film is his dog, Skeletor. I mean, who would not love that face?

The plot is pretty predictable, but still holds your attention. You really feel for Gordon-Levitt’s character because he has a whore for girlfriend, a neurotic mother and well, obviously, he has cancer.

I want to put a warning on this movie, though, because I pretty much cried throughout the whole thing and after asking my friends, the average was about 30 minutes of constant tears. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but it definitely is a tearjerker and overall is a great film. If you’re looking for a good cry, go see “50/50.”
