IN STORES NOW

This Judd Apatow bromance pairs cranky, terminally ill comic George (Adam Sandler) with rising standup Ira (Seth Rogen), whom the former hires as his assistant. While the sidesplitting bits -- like the banter between Ira's roommates (Jason Schwartzman and Jonah Hill) -- satisfy, the bloated flick disappoints when it abruptly turns serious. At least the extras, such as a gag reel and footage of Rogen's first stand-up act at age 13, provide extended laughs. (Universal Studios, $30)
