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.

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.

Beautiful movie, made me laugh and cry.

Light comedy

Reviewer: charles0207Date: 2019-01-14

A brave attempt by Hollywood to deal with the issue of acute disability. They do so in a popular comedy format. Some episodes are contrived but overall it is a success and there are more than a few laughs. A watchable light comedy.


Reviewer: ZandiDate: 2019-01-12

This film is fabulous, it has great performances from Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman. It's very true to life with happy moments followed by sad ones. I left the cinema with a big smile on my face which is how it should be all the time.
