“FUNNY PEOPLE” HAS A LOT TO OFFER
We decided we really prefer Adam Sandler in other people’s movies. He’s very appealing in “Funny People” and you’re going to love the movie if you can get past those rampant penis jokes and crude references. Judd Apatow’s effort is really a dramatic comedy with the best elements of both. Slimmed down Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill are dependably hilarious as aspiring comics, and adorable Jason Schwartzman as an egocentric sitcom star is perfect. Surprising celebrity cameos abound. It’s a great summer movie full of characters you want to spend time with.
