The problem with Funny People is not because of acting, story or direction, but rather the slow and dragging pace. It is so slow and lingers on some scenes so pointlessly long that it loses its intention and meaning. It must be said that Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen have a wonderful chemistry and director of 40 Year old Virgin has honest intentions. At the end of the day, when a film requires me more than a week to finish, it just doesn’t feel like a movie. Funny People is an hour too long, but with strong performances, it isn’t exactly bad…
Neo rates it 5.5/10.
Directed by Judd Apatow.
Starring Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann.
