I should have known better
on August 15, 2012
The blurb on the DVD jacket says comedy. Well, I was expecting Denis Leary's No Cure For Cancer type of laughs since the topic was cancer. There are virtually no laughs in it. It's pretty depressing for much of this movie. The acting is fine and for once two of the supporting actors who usually drive me nuts (Seth Rogan and Dallas Bruce Harper) are tolerable. The problem is the pacing of the story is ponderously slow.
Don't believe the hype such as "consistently, uproariously funny" on the DVD jacket. This is a B movie at best done by A list actors.
There are tons of special features with it but I found myself fast-forwarding parts of the actual movie so, sorry, I just can't sit through all the extras to give anyone out there a better review of the whole DVD package.
