    50/50

    Awesome movie, haven't seen a good movie in a long time. I recommend watching it, made me feel horrible for anyone going through cancer, but was pretty funny as well. I give it 5 stars.

    I've thought about that. My wifes brother died from cancer 8 years ago at 42 with 3 kids at home.

    Just watched this the other day. I have survived leukemia twice and am still recovering from a bone marrow transplant last February. I am not much for emotion but this movie had me both laughing out loud in the beginning and tearing up at the end. Really recommend watching.

    Don't. I could hardly contain myself. My dad has cancer and it really hit home.

    Great Movie though!

    Re: 50/50

    This movie did a great job with a very difficult subject. If you have ever been close to someone who has or had cancer, it could stir up feelings. It certainly brought back a lot of memories for me. My dad died of cancer several years ago.

    Just got around to watching this movie and I give it two thumbs up. Funny, depressing.....it hits the right notes at the right times.

    Strange. It's like Cyber still exists, yet not. Like he's trapped in some sort of time/space continuum.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I kinda miss Cyber... and I don't think I could watch this movie again after my father has passed away now...

    I watched a couple weeks ago, and thought it was really, really well done. Sad and terrible and funny and heartwarming all at the same time, and that is tough to pull off.
