Steve Carell is going to make us have feelings. The comedian is making a shift toward the dramatic by producing and starring in The Priority List: A Teacher’s Final Quest to Discover Life’s Greatest Lessons. I’d expect the title gets shortened to fit on movie tickets.

Based on the memoir by David Menasche, The Priority List tells the story of a beloved Miami high school teacher diagnosed with terminal brain cancer who uses his circumstance to inspire his students to live to the fullest. Having defied the odds, Menasche is still living with cancer and traveled around the States to reconnect with students from his 15-year career. Having read the book (which is excellent), I can predict that this movie will make you cry more than when Michael left The Office. (THR)

Movember is the month where pubescent men around the world grow a cookie duster on their face to raise awareness for ball and prostate cancer. To show our support, we’ve partnered with the Movember Foundation to grow Mos and raise awareness and funds. So head over to the Break Movember page and show your support.

You don’t necessarily need to be a good guy to support the Movember Foundation. For instance, take this bunch of movie villains. They’re all pretty much right bastards, but they do their part for ball and prostate cancer research by rocking some serious Mos. Even the worst of us have our good sides.

If you’re wondering why we been having so many moustache related articles on the site lately, you obviously need to pay more attention. All month long, the site has been taking part in Movember by growing out our moustaches and raising money for men‘s health. So far, Break Media has raised over $30,000 dollars to help fight testicular and prostate cancer.

Today is the last day, so there’s still time to do your part. Head over to the Break Movember page to donate, and take part in the Break Movember photo contest for your chance to win a Samsung HD camera. Unless, of course, you’re a fan of cancerous testicles, in which case I encourage you to sit there with your laptop squarely on your crotch and do nothing.

5 Comedies Besides ’50/50′ That Find The Funny Side Of Cancer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-comedies-besides-5050-that-find-the-funny-side-of-cancer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-comedies-besides-5050-that-find-the-funny-side-of-cancer/#comments Fri, 30 Sep 2011 19:53:37 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230726 We laugh with cancer. Not at it.

This weekend, Seth Rogen takes on cancer for a second time with the comedy 50/50. He stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays a young man that finds out he’s living with the disease. The comedy-drama takes a look at the complicated feelings one experiences while undergoing cancer treatment and facing their own mortality.

Sounds like a tough sell in the humor department, but if done with enough heart, the results can be equally hilarious and moving. Here are five films that were bold enough to mix a little levity in with their heavy subject matter.

Funny People

This list doesn’t just prove that cancer can be approached in a humorous manner, it also proves that Seth Rogen might actually cause cancer. Perhaps he’s unknowingly radioactive like Dr. Manhattan, or maybe he’s poisoning soup with Pine Sol like that lady in The Sixth Sense. After appearing alongside a cancer-stricken Adam Sandler in Funny People and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50, it’s clear that Rogen could be to blame. Jonah Hill‘s sudden weight loss is starting to make a lot of sense.

My Life

When father-to-be Michael Keaton is diagnosed with terminal cancer of the kidneys, he decides to videotape himself giving life lessons to his unborn son. He records instructions on how to shave, play sports, use jumper cables, talk to girls, and cook spaghetti. Sadly by the time his son is old enough to appreciate these lessons, VHS is deemed outdated and they are impossible to view. :(
