There is something so fatuous about the whole farrago that one will never again believe the old saw that the French are more cultured than the Brits and couldn't possibly be taken for this sort of gooey ride.

Veteran French star Francois Cluzet and award-winning comedian Omar Sy are both excellent and the chemistry between them really crackles.

Everything conforms to classist and racist cliché.

Ultimately, it's an unashamed feelgood movie devoid of any real dramatic shocks, preferring to coast along in a pleasing - if unchallenging - formulaic arc.

This is not a film that will change the whole world, but one that just might charm it.

It delivers broad laughs and tugs at the heartstrings without delving too deep - the very definition of a crowd-pleaser.

It's undemanding, heart-warming fodder with mass appeal. Sadly, it's also predictable and its big emotional beats are often harder to stomach than an overripe brie.

It just goes to show that good writers and actors can work wonders with clichéd premises.

When Hollywood gets around to remaking the hit French film "The Intouchables," it won't be much different.

Did the script really have to perpetuate such crass racial stereotypes?

It's watchable because both actors have a good screen presence and bring charm to their roles.

Roaring onto the screen via a Maserati racing through the tunnels of Paris, if first impressions are everything, The Intouchables makes a mockery of the test.

An amazing story based on true characters that is beautifully acted. One of the best movies of the year.

Intouchables is not what you'd call a "bad film," but its attempts to elicit tears from its audience are simply, by now, distractingly familiar.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

Untouchably good.
