DVD/Blu-ray Release: 50/50
Last Tuesday, eOne Home Entertainment released the great 50/50 on Blu-ray & DVD. A raunchy comedy about cancer that profoundly moves us with scenes of heartbreaking drama, this is a film that masterfully handles every emotion and ranks as one of the very best of last year. We reviewed 50/50 when it opened in theatres on September 30th, all highly recommending it. Our overall consensus was:
“With excellent leading work from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, and a wonderfully believable semi-autobiographical screenplay by Will Reiser, 50/50 is a funny and often deeply moving film that masterfully deals with the difficulties of having cancer without ever delving into melodrama. **** (Out of 4)”
The Blu-ray includes commentary with Seth Rogen, director Jonathan Levine and writer Will Resier, as well as deleted scenes and two featurettes.
50/50 is 100 minutes and rated 14A.
