Arrow Funny People (2009)

Funny People

Director - Judd Apatow
Writer (WGA) - Judd Apatow
Genre - Comedy / Drama
Released Date -
28th August 2009 (UK)



I was watching T.V the other day and a commercial came on. I was about to change the channel but then I seen Adam Sandler, one of the most successful Hollywood Comedy actor. So I watched it and it looked really funny. Also Jonah Hill was in it. I have seen him in a few movies and he is funny. He is in movies like "The night at the Musuem 2" and "Accepted".

Im going to go watch the movie A.S.A.P. because it looks soo utterly hilarious. I know it will be when Adam Sandler is in it and Leslie Mann from a new recent movie "17 Again"

Full Synopsis

Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) has shown that nothingnot even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirthis sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, Im trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck! Apatow directs Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann in Funny People, the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience. Adam Sandler, Eric Bana, Jason Schwartzman, RZA and newcomer Aubrey Plaza join a cast that reunites Judd Apatow with Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann and Jonah Hill in their third comedy together.


(Basic Plot)

George Simmons (Adam Sandler) is a very successful yet self-involved stand-up comedian who learns that he has an incurable blood disorder and is given less than a year to live. Ira Wright (Weiner is his actual last name) (Seth Rogen) is a struggling up-and-coming stand-up comedian who works at a deli and has yet to figure out his onstage persona. One thing these different men have in common is that neither of them have any close friends. One night, George takes notice of Ira when they perform at the same club and he hires him to be his semi-personal assistant and opening act at his performances. George and Ira form a close bond as George teaches Ira how to win the crowd and Ira helps the dying George find closure in his legacy. However, when George learns that his disease has gone into remission and an old flame (Leslie Mann) reenters his life, his recent near death experience inspires him to reevaluate what is important to him and what truly gives meaning to his life.

Its looks like a fab movie. After all it is Adam Sandler we are talking about here. And he doesnt even have 1 movie that isnt funny or I dont like..

  • Click
  • The Longest Yard
  • Waterboy
  • Happy Gilmore
  • I now pronounce you chuck and Larry
  • Bedtime stories
  • You dont mess with the Zohan
  • Mr Deeds
Dang he has many films I can list for ages. He really is a great actor and this movie is going to be great. Its OUT!

Well I dont tend to watch' funny movies' because of my own distorted sense of humour. However this may be one that I would watch as it has an interesting storyline.
And for once might match me sense of humour.

Anyway nice 'write up' Silent and you have done a good review.

I like Adam Sandler, but I think he can be a little too much sometimes. I still want to see this movie, though.
