This film proves that Kevin Hart can be a funny man without wild gesticulations while spewing out 4-letter words. Cranston gives another great performance, this time as a self-loathing quadriplegic. An entertaining Hollywood version of a pair of unusual buddies from NYC, inspired by the true story of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo and his French-Algerian caregiver Abdel Sellou in the 2011 comedy drama "The intouchables" from Paris. Other remakes are, so far:
Inseparables - 2016, Spanish from Buenos Aires.
Oopiri 2016 - Indian from Chennai, Hyderabad, Paris, Lyon, Oingt, Grignan and Belgrade.

Another excellent drama about friendship between caretaker and wealthy quadriplegic is Me Before You - 2016, English from Pembroke Castle, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

Bryan Cranston may be the best actor in the world today. He is completely underrated. Every other actor in the movie hold their own. But the plot is so predictable! Every cliche in the book. 3 solid stars.

Doesn't have the same appeal like the French movie, but it's not so bad at all. Watch both if you can, because French version deserves some credits too.

I agree with the other reviews. I will admit that I did like the French version better. I'm not a big fan of Kevin Hart but he was good in this. I absolutely love Bryan Cranston in everything he's done. Watch both versions and decide for yourself.

In my opinion this movie was underrated by the critics. Bryan Cranston is (as always) terrific. It was great to see Kevin Hart in a good, not over-the-top, role for a change! This may be his best role to date, and he showed some good chops with it. I saw the original version (The Intouchables) and this remake compares quite favorably with it.
A half-dozen of my friends have watched this movie and all give it 4 1/2 or 5 star ratings.

A tour de force for Bryan Cranston and just plain fun for Kevin Hart as he effectively deadpans his way through the film. See this one, then see the original, The Intouchables.

Many good quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors. A couple of the gems are:

Funny:
You can have any girl you want. What about this lady with all the Botox? You're perfect for each other. You can't move your body, she can't move her face.

Reality:
It's my legs. It's the nerves. It's called neurogenic pain. It's like being on fire.
-They don't give you nothing for that?
Different medications. It helps a bit. Not enough.
- Hurt enough to make you wanna off yourself?
No. But losing my wife does.
