The Upside

In my list of all-time favorite movies the 2011 French film The Intouchables takes the top spot (in front of Jurassic Park, Tombstone, Malcolm X, Green Book, Avengers Infinity War, Jaws, and even Black Panther)! Yep, good ol’ number one. So it comes at no surprise that I am a little skeptical about the upcoming The Upside release. Now don’t get me wrong I think Kevin Hart is an amazingly talented actor with great comedic timing and Bryan Cranston is among the best, but… during The Intiouchables I laughed like I’ve never laughed and I cried with the least amount of outwardly sniveling that I could muster. Oh, and did I mention the chemistry between Omar Sy and Francois Cluzet? And, what about the superb supporting cast? That being said, how will Hart and Co. improve on cinematic perfection? I guess we’ll see when the film opens on the January 11th. Americans and their damn remakes…
