    Anyone planning on seeing it? The reviews haven't been kind. If you're advertising a movie as a comedy and the funniest stuff is Harry Potter joke and the bar scene they show on the ads, I'm thinking it might not be that great.

    Also don't know what has gotten into Seth Rogan. He's popping off at Entourage, Katherine Heigl... dude needs to start eating again.

    I want to see it, but I am afraid it is going to be another film billed as comedy that is actually not funny and a little depressing.

    Actually, it's 64 percent on rotten tomatoes, which isn't bad. I was reading where it's an incredibly tough film to market, because it has the Apatow comedy elements people expect, but it's a legitimately dramatic story.

    I'll definitely see it, because I like Sandler's dramatic roles ("Punch-Drunk Love" is a favorite) and am too curious not to.

    Two reasons to support Rogen by seeing this movie multiple times.

    I've seen a bunch of the stand-up segments and thought they were pretty good.
    That doesn't mean it's a good movie, though.
