A fabulous comedy that I saw at the cinema, we went to see a different film which was full, we were not dissapointed.
A remake of the 2011 French mega-hit Intouchables, The Upside is director Neil Burger’s heartfelt comedy about a recently paroled ex-convict (Kevin Hart) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with the paralyzed billionaire (Bryan Cranston) who employs him as his carer. Also starring Nicole Kidman as the billionaire’s assistant.
“Cranston delivers a performance full of life and emotion and the actor must be commended for his execution of a role that places so much emphasis on facial expression alone.” The Upcoming
“It doesn’t do anything different from the original, but the upside to The Upside is two strong, winning performances that keep you going down a well-worn path.” Empire
“This is not much more than a light crowdpleaser, but when you’ve got two powerhouse performers like this it is very difficult not to find oneself at least temporarily charmed.” The Guardian
