Jonathan Levine Statele Unite, 2011

SALESK's rating of the film 50/50

littered with cliches and more than a whiff of misogyny, whatever cred 50/50 had as a sentiment-free, "anti-cancer movie" is quickly eroded as you realize every beat of the story is telegraphed in giant, boldfaced type. dudes learn to be affectionate to each other. cancer guy gets quirky, understanding girl & reconnects with his mom. all is well. all is boring.
