The Upside: A Review

The Upside is a movie I recommend. The critics (mostly) hated it, audiences (mostly) loved it. I am going with the audience (majority). Yeah, it is predictable and a remake of an earlier French film (based on a real life story), The Intouchables. If you know the premise of the movie you can pretty quickly figure it out where it is headed, but the performances and friendship dynamic between Kevin Hart and Brian Cranston makes it an enjoyable trip to watch. That makes this film work. It also had strong supporting performances by Nicole KidmanGoldshifteh Farahani, and Aja Naomi King

It was good to see it in a theater and have the audience laughing out loud.  It is a movie that will work on TV too, if you want to wait to stream it.
