Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
50/50 is a tremendous movie. It's also a really funny one, which doesn't mean it won't make you cry.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Rick Groen
Even hardened cynics will embrace the cliché – yep, you will laugh, you will cry.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Reiser has written his characters with an indelible sweetness and vulnerability, which allows the cast to deliver performances with some depth.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
The movie belongs to Gordon-­Levitt and Anna Kendrick as his painfully green therapist.

The New Yorker - David Denby
Buoyant and observant, 50/50 is a small winner; the director, Jonathan Levine ("The Wackness"), has a great touch, mordant but light-handed.
