| (Not) Funny People
Definitely not what I was expecting from Judd Apatow after his previous fantastic movies - and I knew I wasn't getting another "Knocked Up".

Funny people is a rather boring, depressing story with unlikeable and unmotivated characters that give you the feeling that they weren't having any fun making this movie. And that means a lot when I say this, as most of my favorite comedy actors are in this.

The story just drags on and on and keeps changing direction and following random, short plot lines throughout the whole film. And when you think it's finally over, the story changes direction completely one more time - new characters and locations are introduced and it just drags on for almost another hour until it ends in the wreck that is this movie.
