  • Dreading the Upside. An American remake of Intouchable with Kevin Hart worries me.

    Also will Jessica Chastain ever make anything besides Jessica Chastain movies?

    • The Upside had a very strong opening (understandable because of the big names attached), but its critical reviews and especially audience reviews don’t compare. What were your thoughts on the original French film?

      • Great Chemistry between the leads in the french film. It’s One of my favourite feel good movies, and it’s 75% because of Omar Sy’s perfect laugh
