Funny People

Description from Netflix: Famous and wealthy funnyman George Simmons (Adam Sandler) doesn't give much thought to how he treats people until a doctor (Torsten Voges) delivers stunning health news, forcing George to reevaluate his priorities with a little help from aspiring stand-up comic Ira (Seth Rogen). Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) writes and directs this moving comedy that also stars Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman and Aubrey Plaza.

I was looking for to this since I like Judd Apatow other movies he directed, but this was more of an Adam Sandler movie than a Judd Apatow movie. I was disappointed. It had its moments, but it was more "Spanglish" than "Knocked Up." It had some great cameos like Paul Reiser (who looks a lot older). and other stand up comedians.
