Upside, The (12A)

Drama, Comedy

US drama in which a feckless man takes a job as carer to a billionaire quadriplegic.

The critical consensus

Formulaic but funny remake of French smash Untouchable, starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart.

***(*)(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 07/01/2019

You don’t have to have seen the French film to feel that things look rather familiar.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/01/2019

An ill-advised American remake of a French movie, this odd couple comedy fails to translate despite likeable performances from Hart and Bryan Cranston.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 11/01/2019

A dull film that doesn’t need to exist.

**(*)(*)(*)Thomas Hobbs, Little White Lies, 10/01/2019

Nicole Kidman classes things up a little, but not enough to endure 130 minutes of Cranston and Hart’s odd-couple shenanigans.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 11/01/2019

Kevin Hart is just irritating as a former criminal caring for Bryan Cranston’s paralysed millionaire.
