My Thoughts on The Upside

Comment 1 Standard

I went to see The Upside with my mom a couple weeks ago and we had a great time. This isn’t going to be a full review, just a few of my thoughts.

I felt a little iffy about going to see The Upside, but my brother mentioned that this was one of Kevin Hart’s first really serious roles. I think he and Bryan Cranston did a great job portraying these roles. Just because they were playing serious roles, doesn’t mean there weren’t a bunch of good laughs thrown in.

The movie is based on a true story. It’s about a paraplegic man (played by Bryan Cranston) and the man he hires as his home aide (Kevin Hart). It’s a pretty heartfelt story that follows that emotional roller coaster formula. I laughed, I cried, and I had a great night out.

After doing a little research, I found out that the movie is actually pretty close to the real story. Turns out The Upside is basically just the American version of The Intouchables, a 2011 film about the pair.

If you’re looking for something that you can watch with your parents, I’d definitely recommend The Upside. It’s heartfelt, funny, and leaves you feeling content.

Have you seen The Upside?
