About this Film

The Upside

ODEON says...
‘The Upside’ follows Dell as he’s released from prison, finds himself working as a carer for Phillip, a quadriplegic billionaire, and strikes up an unlikely friendship with his new employer.

Desperate for work to meet the terms of his parole, Dell appeals to Phillip despite his lack of experience or qualifications. And against all the odds, they just might help each other find a new lease on life after all they’ve both been through.

Starring Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, ‘The Upside’ is a heartwarming comedy drama about rediscovering the joy of being alive.

Kevin Hart at his best! Great performances from Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman. Had not laughed so much for a while! Oh! Dear! The film is thought-provoking in other respects. Not to be missed!

Good film.

Amazing Story

Reviewer: OzanDate: 2019-01-15

The story of the film was amazing, it shows how someone can have nothing and by pushing himself to doing things he has never done before which made him to start earning money. It also was really funny and fun to watch.
