Meet 27-year-old Adam, played by Uncertainty's Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He likes his job, has a girlfriend, a faithful best friend, and seems to have a good life. Then he's diagnosed with rare type of cancer, a tumor on his spine. Chemotherapy doesn't shrink the tumor, so he has to have surgery. Along the journey of treatment, he learns about family, friendship, and life.
|Adam's not to excited about being only his therapist's third patient.|
I saw this quote in Bob Hoose's review on PluggedIn.com, which describes how I feel about putting such a potentially great movie under the cover of a foul language filled sex comedy:
The lowball dross seriously cheapens the powerful statements they set out to make. The truth is, if you have something that's cinematic gold and you cover it with a layer or two of filth, nobody can see the value lurking underneath. And if they discover it accidentally, they're still going to be left longing for a good scrub brush and a hose.Bring on the scrub brush! But besides all that, still,
Bottom line, 3 stars.
