One of the comedies to be on the watch for is 50/50, which is beginning to look like it has a shot at being one of the stronger R-rated comedies of the year in 2011. A Red Band Clip for the film, which you can watch the trailer for here, has been released.
Plot Summary: Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a 27 year old man who is otherwise in excellent health, is suddenly diagnosed with cancer. He breaks the news to his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard), his best friend (Seth Rogen) and his mother (Anjelica Huston), who is also dealing with her husband (and Adam’s father) who has Alzheimer’s disease. Each deals with the news and subsequent treatment in different ways. In the middle of it all, Adam also seeks therapy from a young and inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick), assigned to him by the hospital, and befriends several older, wisecracking chemotherapy patients (Philip Baker Hall and Matt Frewer).
