Watch, Pass, TiVo or Rent: Funny People

For Judd Apatow's third directorial feature film, Funny People, he has Seth Rogen starring as a fledgling comedian who looks up to the seasoned comedian/Hollywood actor, George Simmons (Adam Sandler). George learns that he has an untreatable blood disorder and that he has one year to live. He notices Ira's act one night and takes Ira under his wing — though it doesn't change the fact that George is a prickly, difficult guy. The movie explores the world of comedy and the quirky sort of mentor/mentee relationship that forms between a newbie performer and a guy who's "made it" — but at a cost. Leslie Mann also stars as George's "one that got away."

Will you venture out to the theaters for this one, wait for the DVD, catch it on TV someday, or skip it altogether?

I can't wait to see this, hopefully I will watch it in theaters. I love the cast and I think it will be just the right mix of comedy & drama.

I can't stand Adam Sandler nor Seth Rogen, but Apatow has made incredibly good, surprisingly sweet, and very funny movies and I have a good feeling this will be too. I'm not completely sold on the premise, but I do trust that Apatow will do a great job. And I will literally watch anything with Eric Bana...

This looks so terrible...although Eric Bana isn't so bad on the eyes.

Watch! I absolutely love Seth Rogen and this looks genius. It's also the only Adam Sandler film I've been interested in seeing in years.

I'm really looking forward to this one. The Apatow films that he actually directs are always a good balance of funny and touching and I have a feeling this one might make me cry.
