A half-century after MLK's death is Baltimore less segregated? Yes and no.

'Funny People'


This lengthy but enjoyable story is about comedians, but not all of the content is humorous as writer-producer-director Judd Apatow teams Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen.

Sandler plays a comedy star who learns he has only a limited time left to life, so he makes an admirer (Rogen) his assistant and protege. Leslie Mann, Apatow's wife, is in a supporting cast that also includes Eric Bana, Jonah Hill ("Superbad"), Jason Schwartzman ("Bored to Death") and – as themselves – actual comics Ray Romano, Paul Reiser, Norm Macdonald and Sarah Silverman. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
