FUNNY PEO­PLE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9PM, 7MATE ★★ ★

This com­edy by pro­lific writer-di­rec­tor-pro­ducer Judd Apa­tow ( Knocked Up, The 40- Year- Old Vir­gin) is not re­ally a com­edy at all. De­spite the are- you- readyto- laugh ti­tle, Funny Peo­ple turns out to be a rel­a­tively se­ri­ous film that just hap­pens to have some great jokes in it. Adam San­dler stars as a suc­cess­ful co­me­dian di­ag­nosed with a lifethreat­en­ing con­di­tion who is de­ter­mined to clean up his messy life be­fore his time is up. Seth Ro­gen is a bat­tling gag writer hired to help out. Co- stars Les­lie Mann, Eric Bana and Jonah Hill.
