Funny People-Trailer Review

Now that award season has come to an end, I can start to show my true side. I'm a sucker for Adam Sandler movies no matter how bad and untasteful they may be. His new film with Seth Rogen, "Funny People" actually looks well done. It has a very entertaining trailer that just made me want it to come out into theatres already. Here is the premise. George Simmons (Sandler) is a very successful yet self-involved stand-up comedian who learns that he has a blood disorder and is given less than a year to live. Ira Wright (Rogen) is a struggling up-and-coming stand-up comedian who works at a deli and has yet to figure out his onstage persona. One thing these different men have in common is that neither of them has any close friends. One night, George takes notice of Ira when they perform at the same club and he hires him to be his semi-personal assistant and opening act at his performances. George and Ira form a close bond as George teaches Ira how to win the crowd and Ira helps the dying George find closure in his legacy. Release Date: July 31, 2009
