Wie das Leben so spielt: Directed by Judd Apatow. With Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana. When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship causes him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.

“Considering Judd Apatowu0026#39;s previous work most people will probably see Funny People expecting a comedy.This isnu0026#39;t the case at all. The film is clearly a drama even though it centers around stand up comedy.George (Adam Slander) is a very successful, famous and rich comedian who learns that he has a blood disorder similar to leukemia and heu0026#39;ll most likely die in a short amount of time. Ira (Seth Rogen) is a struggling up-and-coming stand up comedian who works at a deli.One night George takes notice of Ira and hires him as his personal assistant. Ira gets exited with this new chance and accepts it right away.Besides being an assistant Ira soon becomes Georgeu0026#39;s only friend. Later on the experimental medicine that was given to George by the doctors ends up working and George defeats the disease. With a second chance in life, George tries to reconnect with the love of his life and takes Ira along for the ride. Both of them end up learning some lessons. This is not a bad film, and I think the premise is great, the problem here is that the movie is very,very uneven.The direction of the film changes a few times, sometimes it feels like its going on the right direction and sometimes it just falls flat.As I said, this is more a drama then a comedy, but the writing is what you usually see in the late genre; the characters are two dimensional and poorly written, specially the main character George who towards the end of the movie seems like a completely different person. The acting was a big problem for me as well. Seth Rogenu0026#39;s acting here, lets be honest, it is atrocious, he doesnu0026#39;t seem comfortable at all and delivers his lines in a very awkward way (and I didnu0026#39;t mind him at all in Zack And Miri Make A Porno for instance) and Eric Bana has a serious case of overacting. All in all, itu0026#39;s a very uneven film but entertaining nonetheless and a good change of pace for Adam Sandler.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e6/10”
