Funny People - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow ("The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up") has shown that nothing—not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth—is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, "I'm trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!" Apatow directs Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann in "Funny People," the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience.

Adam Sandler, Eric Bana, Jason Schwartzman, RZA and newcomer Aubrey Plaza join a cast that reunites Judd Apatow with Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann and Jonah Hill in their third comedy together.

MOVIE REVIEW

In just a few short years, Judd Apatow's name has become synonymous with quality comedy as he's been behind many of the best comedies in recent years, including The 40-Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Pineapple Express, among others. So when his third directorial feature (yes, only his third) was announced with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen as the leads, expectations were immediately high. And yet, Funny People struggled financially and critically as it is unlike any movie Apatow has worked on before.
