Critic Reviews of "Funny People"Film.comMay 06, 2011
Funny People is funny, moving, dramatic, and alternately hilarious. It's a bit like a stand-up dramedy.Time OutAugust 29, 2009
This is a generous, goodhearted, enjoyable movie, loaded with memorable characters and genuine wit. But there's such a thing as giving a little too much.Film.comAugust 25, 2009
The good parts of this movie are often wonderful, but Apatow never finds the rhythm to keep it going. It lurches from inspiration to inspiration, but always manages to muddy its feet in mediocrity in between, as it drags on toward the two-and-a-half-hourChicago ReaderAugust 20, 2009
Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) takes some interesting chances in this messy but engaging comedy, which suggests he may yet mature (no, seriously) into a filmmaker of substance.At the MoviesAugust 03, 2009
It walks a perfectly fine line between being funny and tragic.GQ Magazine [UK]August 16, 2015
At over two hours, it moves at the dignified pace of a Bergman film rather than, well, a Happy Gilmore or a Waterboy, but the director can rest easy, it's another hit.DeadspinJune 22, 2013
The unique hatred of yourself, and your audience, required of being a comedian is something that Apatow (and Sandler) understand profoundly: That's what this movie is about.TheShiznit.co.ukSeptember 29, 2012
Why does Funny People often feel like a joke without a punchline?ComingSoon.netMarch 22, 2011
For all its qualities Funny People never quite comes together. It can't quite decide who it wants to be about, whether it wants to be a comedy or a drama and in trying to be all things at once it never quite hits its full potential.Las Vegas CityLifeFebruary 01, 2011
Apatow draws on his own experience to explore behavioral nuances of people that make us laugh, and it's no secret that being funny is not the same as being happy.QuickflixOctober 27, 2010
Funny People may be deeply flawed, but at least it has an accurate title.
