Funny People

Rating = B-

This is a sad story, not a comedy. Adam Sandler is moving in the lead role, playing a successful but unhappy man (as he also did well in Punch-Drunk Love and Spanglish). It also is a look into the lives of professional and wanna-be comedians — mostly unhappy and always crude it appears. They are so unfunny in this film, it pulled down my enjoyment of the drama.
