Adam Sandler... this guy makes the character quite likeable at first, but a plot point has him going back to what Adam Sandler usually does: retro-evolve his characters. Here, where the movie almost promises a different Sandler, we get the same annoying acting chops the guy can muster to try and keep his career alive and goes about as far as possible as Apatow's style of filmmaking, making it the longest, most boring and dull entry.
Sandler isn't the only problem here: Apatow's style allows for actors to improvise, and this means many moments could have been very different had Apatow stuck to his guns instead of letting the camera roll.
Special features are VERY satisfying, for some reason. Two disc set includes hours upon hours upon hours of featurettes, interviews, behind the scenes spots, trailers, music videos, etc.
At least, Apatow made "This is 40", which was a much better, smarter and more touching piece of filmmaking. As for "Funny People", the only funny thing is the title and a few moments, the rest is pretty screwed up, thanks to Sandler. If you're asking yourself if I liked anything Sandler ever did, my answer is YES: Punch Drunk Love. That one was perfectly cast to where Sandler's talent seemed to go.
If, like me, you do not like Sandler and still think about giving this movie a shot, do so, but you've been warned.. maybe you'll like it, I wish you do... but I didn't and henceforth, Sandler is written in red on my black list.
