The film stars Adam Sandler as a 42-year old comic named George Simmons, who one day he learns that he has a rare untreatable blood disorder, and only has six months to a year left to live. Seth Rogen plays Ira, a 25-year-old deli counter worker and aspiring stand-up comedian who George takes under his wing.
