The problem is that if, while you're having a good time with these characters, you start to think about the wider implications of the film, you might find yourself somewhat less enthralled.

It's not subtle. It's not innovative. But it guarantees good humour, pranks, japes and welling-up for two hours.

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.

For once, the hype is justified.

Enjoy it before the English language version comes out.

Everything conforms to classist and racist clich.

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.

More than a little unrealistic.

"The Intouchables" is actually quite touchable.

Some of the elements in the film are inexplicable and some are undeveloped, but there are a handful of nicely crafted set pieces.

It's the classic odd-couple buddy movie setup, only it'll pull at your heartstrings, whether you want it to or not.
