On "Funny People"

From The Dispatch:
For his third excursion behind the camera, Apatow has finally tackled grown-up issues head on. The previous two dealt with them, but not quite on this level. I'm sure many in his target audience will find this maturity off-putting; a lot of the film deals with introspection and growing up. "Funny People" is a film aimed at a more adult audience rather than the teen/college market, even though there is still plenty of raunchy humor to go around. But Apatow's screenplay doesn't shy away from the darkness of its subject, and to that end "Funny People" is his richest and most real effort yet.
