The Upside

TIME OUT SAYS

It’s Déjà Vu as the life-affirming hit French comedy-drama The Intouchables, the true story of a bromance between a wealthy quadriplegic man and his black live-in carer from the projects (aka the American version of a council estate), gets the Hollywood treatment. This really is an incredibly cheesy remake (and the original was already pretty cheesy) starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart, doing their best with a script
that cracks out all the odd-couple movie clichés. That’s not to say The Upside is a complete write-off. The two actors bounce off each like ping-pong balls. But there’s no ignoring the fact that the characters are based on unevolved racial and physical stereotypes. Cath Clarke
