Famous and wealthy funnyman George Simmons (Adam Sandler) doesn’t give much thought to how he treats people until a doctor (Torsten Voges) delivers stunning health news, forcing George to reevaluate his priorities with a little help from aspiring stand-up comic Ira (Seth Rogen). Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) writes and directs this moving comedy that also stars Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman and Aubrey Plaza.
This movie is a dramedy. It had its moments but I thought 40 minutes too long. I am giving it 2.8 stars. If it was 40 minutes shorter I would have been given it 3. I do like Judd Apatow, I want him to produce my script when it is completed.
