I enjoyed this movie so much, I watched it twice! Far past my twenties but it didn't matter.
Well done, worthwhile.

It has genuine humanity, with none of the melodramatic acting that has become the norm in alot of movies to go along with a few laughs peppered in. I've added 1.5 stars to my original rating b/c I've now watched it 7+times, & now own the blu ray.
Bonus: it was shot in Vancouver.

15 minutes was about all I could handle. Just unwatchable.

Got about an hour into it and turned it off. Didn’t do anything for me and Seth Rogen was too much in this movie. Nothing great here.

Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Starts with Joseph Gordon-Levitt jogging down through Stanley Park sea wall in Vancouver, B.C.

Gordon-Levitt, Rogen, and Kendrick make this comedic tearjerker worth watching. Each actor brings something nice to the movie without blowing it out of proportion. These characters are dimensional and remind you of the important things in life: friends and family.
A huge theme of this movie is don't let anything hold you back (whether it be love or cancer, it applies to all.)
A must watch!

This movie is billed as a comedy, but it's actually a real tearjerker. I was bawling by the end of it. So it's probably not for you if you're looking for something light and funny, but I really enjoyed it anyway. The characters and the story seemed very realistic and there was no attempt to sugarcoat things. Seth Rogen was honestly the weakest link here - his antics seemed a bit out of place in a movie about cancer.

I truly enjoyed this movie about suffering cancer and true friendship. The dynamic exchange of dialogues between Seth Rogen and Joseph G-L was fun and somehow touching near the end. You can not imagine a better friend like that during a situation where people just freaked out about you.

Let's hope we all take good care of our good friends during the most difficult time in life.

This completely exceeded my expectations. The cancer issue is dealt with realistically, the friendship between the men rings absolutely true, and all of the characters are well-written as actual human beings. Funny bits, sad bits, and overall well worth your time.
