A box office phenomenon in France, this crowd-pleasing drama is based on a true story but sticks closely to the template for a Hollywood buddy movie.

I checked the production materials for "The Intouchables" and failed to find confirmation that any of this was inspired by 1987's "Disorderlies," in which the Fat Boys push old Ralph Bellamy around to his heart's content.

Movies in which black characters, however nuanced or well meaning, act in subservience to whites, often raise hackles. For me, it all depends on how it's done.

The movie, while inherently patronizing, is frisky and mostly likable. But its amiability depends on airbrushing potential sources of misunderstanding, both cultural and political.
