Forget about the critics. This is a great movie, I had a great time watching it, I didn't feel like it dragged on. I would suggest going to this movie if you just want to enjoy it, I wouldn't suggest going to it if you're going to be like these critics who hold every remake as an abomination.

There is a French movie called Untouchables and it is similar story like this. I loved that one

Wonderful movie. Not what you usually see Kevin Hart doing but he did a phenomenal job. Wonderful cast and Nicole Kidman never sees to amaze me. Must watch.

The Upside is definitely a must-see movie which has friendship between two strangers, giving second chances, a life worth living for, heartbeat, and many more. You are going to laugh a lot and get emotional so bring some tissues.

I went into this movie with low expectations. I thought it would be a soft comedy with some decent laughs. That's exactly what it was. But then I started to care about the characters and was hoping for a dark ending. *spoiler* No dark ending. If someone would have died at the end, anyone, this would have gotten 5 stars because I cared about the characters so much. Instead, it fizzled out into a buddy movie, happily ever after.

It was a bit inspiring because it really makes you think about people with disability in a way that most people dont bother to. Also its really nice to see Kevin Hart do a role with a little more sustinance than the stereotypical try-hard for any zinger role that i usually see him playing. I do believe he's growing as an actor. Kudos all around to everyone who made this movie happen.

Great acting especially for Kevin Hart stepping into a much more serious role. The film seems slow, but not at all as a fault. Instead it simply flows from point A to point B in a way that’s extremely emotionally engaging. Be prepared to laugh and cry. Must see.

The film as a whole never takes flight, though not for lack of trying.

The pairing of Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart in the lead roles pays off big time, with more laugh-out-loud moments than the original and some particularly hilarious work from Hart, who steps up his game after his fun if broad-minded performances in Get Hard and the Ride Along movies.

In the end, The Upside is the sum of its good players and dubious politics, wrenching genuine tears from a story that celebrates the rich promise of life in all its shades of joy and heartbreak.
