I know a lot of people don’t like the film Funny People. It tried to merge drama and comedy in a very alarming way, and it sort of muddled that line for two and a half hours. I liked Funny People, and think it deserves more credit than it receives, but even I will agree that it never quite hit what it was supposed to do. It was missing something in its tone and/or attitude that made it never quite be the film it wanted to be. I think 50/50 accomplished everything Funny People actually wanted to achieve, and did it in an hour less time.
