The Upside (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Upside
No surprises here, folks; just half-hearted punchlines and unadventurous sentimentality readymade for marketplace consumption.
No matter how heartening the performances are, how hard Hart and Cranston work to make us forget about the transparent blueprint design of the narrative, ultimately, the film makes one feel queasy.
[Bryan] Cranston and [Kevin] Hart fight tooth and nail to keep the film as charming as possible, though, with Hart going to particularly impressive lengths. It almost works, until you remember it shouldn't.
There's something so disarming about Phillip and Dell's relationship that you're gradually sucked into it without asking too many questions.
So little has been done to update or refresh "The Intouchables" for American culture or a new audience that "The Upside" has no integrity as a separate piece of work.
