Adam, a 27-year old public radio employee discovers he has cancer.

All the while, Adam's overprotective mother Diane (Anjelica Huston) tries to overcome her son's continued attempts to keep her out of his life. As Adam begins to discover how hard it is to deal with his situation, and to maintain various relationships in his life, he begins seeing a young counselor (Anna Kendrick) who might prove to be just as helpful personally as she is professionally.

True friendship at its core. Humorous yet sad.

Silly, crude, and heart-wrenching. The acting wasn't the best quality of this movie, but Seth Rogen came through with his usual perverted and hilarious vulgarity. I enjoyed this movie alot and Seth's character proved to be a sweet and loyal friend to his buddy who was diagnosed with cancer.

I turned it off after a short time. I think the story line had so much potential, but the vulgarity just made it inaccessable. Shame.

I enjoyed this movie so much, I watched it twice! Far past my twenties but it didn't matter.
Well done, worthwhile.

15 minutes was about all I could handle. Just unwatchable.

Got about an hour into it and turned it off. Didn’t do anything for me and Seth Rogen was too much in this movie. Nothing great here.

Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Starts with Joseph Gordon-Levitt jogging down through Stanley Park sea wall in Vancouver, B.C.

Gordon-Levitt, Rogen, and Kendrick make this comedic tearjerker worth watching. Each actor brings something nice to the movie without blowing it out of proportion. These characters are dimensional and remind you of the important things in life: friends and family.
A huge theme of this movie is don't let anything hold you back (whether it be love or cancer, it applies to all.)
A must watch!

This movie is billed as a comedy, but it's actually a real tearjerker. I was bawling by the end of it. So it's probably not for you if you're looking for something light and funny, but I really enjoyed it anyway. The characters and the story seemed very realistic and there was no attempt to sugarcoat things. Seth Rogen was honestly the weakest link here - his antics seemed a bit out of place in a movie about cancer.
