It's so true. You hit a certain age and 1) Your checking an box on surveys that makes you cringe, 2) you become your parent's parent, 3) you now remind the people you want to date of their parents (ouch), 4) you know that based on your portfolio you'll have to work until your dead - but at what?

ABOUT FIFTY is an honest and smile-inducing look at this unique "bend in the road." Simple, clear and funny where it should be. Wonderful story telling, great use of location and a fabulous cast.

This movie was okay, well acted, good filming. It's essentially another version of 'Sideways' (which was much funnier and much better). 2 50-something guys having a mid-life crises, so they get in their Porsche and drive to Palm Springs to play golf and get laid. Of course, 1 of them is an emotional, mental wreck (from a separation) and the other is a sex-pig. You can fill in the blanks from here. I did not find this movie "a laugh out loud" affair. In fact, it was a bit dark and very sad in some ways. Perhaps it is because I am a 49 year old male who is probably entering my first, real mid-life crisis (though I have no idea what it is about yet).
I wouldn't say "Don't watch this"... but I definitely wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a fun night of "laughing out loud".

This is a road-trip movie that encompasses the spontaneity of youth coupled with the mortality of turning 50. It's honest, funny, and takes us inside the life of Adam, a divorced commercial editor recently marginalized by the next generation of hipsters. He takes a trip to Palm Springs with his carousing best friend to unwind from a recent string of bad news. The two gear up for some golf, some time with the ladies, and an adventure that comes full circle emotionally by the end of the movie. Wendie Malick is delightful in a supporting role, and the film is well produced. If you liked TNT's "Men Of a Certain Age", you'll dig "About 50".

I watched "About Fifty" last night with my daughters and a few of their friends. It was getting late and we kept saying we would put in on pause and continue watching the following day...... but we just couldn't. It was wonderful and appealed to all of us regardless of our age difference. I found myself thinking about it during work the next day and the girls told me they did, as well.
It was so "comfortable"... I just don't know how else to describe how it made me feel....... and, yes... it most definitely made me feel. I hope more people experience this little slice of life you shared with us.

Enjoyable movie throughout - start to finish it held my attention. I especially like how it came 'round full-circle. Acting was genuine and you kinda felt like you knew these people, we've all been there....I recommend this to anyone wants to sit back and enjoy a good movie.

I didn't really think it much of a comedy either, unfortunately there is no genre yet to label this one! I enjoyed it, was nice to see a film for once of people being honest about aging! The reality was sweet! I do not know anything about golfing, and have even been to a tournament before! This film showed me more of how that works which was cool, The actors/actresses were awesome. I was surprised to see so many, so I read a couple (1 star) reviews about it being boring, slow and see how narrow minds could make such comments but make no mistake it's worth seeing and if your intelligent will really make you think when it's over!

Deceptive poster. Wendy Malik (the only reason to watch this turkey) has a small supporting role with a dozen lines. The two protagonists are cardboard cutouts of pathetic middle aged men, who lost their jobs in entertaiment as writers? film editors? One is single and the other is on a trial separation from his wife. The two men embark on a week-end of fun, trying to recapture their youth. The dialogue is trite, the acting amateurish (except for Malik, always the consumate actor), and the comedy non-existant in this boorish dud. Fast forwarding came in very handy.
Save yourself the time and go watch paint dry instead, it's more entertaining than this downer.

Really? I have to wrote 20 words to review a movie too? Thanks Amazon

It was a good movie (possibly very good), some scenes were super funny. Some poignant moments too but that is okay. It was a refreshing change of pace from lots of the other drivel and
so-not-funny movies listed as comedies.
