    Yes, I get that the original French film was better...but, for those of us that haven't seen it or who are okay with English remakes...this is a pretty solid film. Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart both give strong performances who share a believable bond of friendship. I guess I just found it a much more enjoyable film than the critics would have you believe.

    I am very particular about which movies I like. Usually they are Oscar winners only. But this movie was so beautifully done. And very well written, acted, and overall done. Highly recommend!

    Cranston and Hart have great chemistry. The story is simple and predictable but well acted and full of heart. Perfect for a rainy day.

    My expectations for this movie were high, but it was average at best. Good movie, but not great.

    A film that was recommended to me I ended up really enjoying. The chemistry between Cranston & Hart really take this film and runs with it. Funny, witty, heart warming and many other feelings happen, I really enjoyed it though

    It was a truly emotional film, that made me happy , think, and truly be grateful for what I have. This film is inspirational and really shows how friendship can change your life. Some parts were a little slow but overall a great emotional movie that really makes you take a look at your own life. I highly recommend it.

    I liked it despite some flaws many folks mention here. I found the acting much better than expected. Cliché? A bit. Predictable? Yes. But far less than than the schlock superhero genre garbage setting record attendance. I’ll take character studies over that garbage any day!
