Critic Reviews of "The Upside"New York TimesJanuary 10, 2019
Jon Hartmere's script has genuinely funny moments and is blessedly short on crassness: even a scene involving catheters and colon hygiene is less cringey than you might expect.TheWrapJanuary 09, 2019
In other words, Kevin Hart's Dell is a stereotype; even worse, a stereotype with no other purpose than to illuminate the humanity of his white counterpart.Associated PressJanuary 08, 2019
Few films in memory have squandered so much acting talent in such a cliche-ridden, exploitative and dishonest way. It deserves its frozen grave.indieWireSeptember 12, 2017
No surprises here, folks; just half-hearted punchlines and unadventurous sentimentality readymade for marketplace consumption.RogerEbert.comSeptember 11, 2017
No matter how heartening the performances are, how hard Hart and Cranston work to make us forget about the transparent blueprint design of the narrative, ultimately, the film makes one feel queasy.Globe and MailSeptember 11, 2017
[Bryan] Cranston and [Kevin] Hart fight tooth and nail to keep the film as charming as possible, though, with Hart going to particularly impressive lengths. It almost works, until you remember it shouldn't.The PlaylistJanuary 10, 2019
Though anchored by strong performances, The Upside stumbles along thanks to a bumbling script that's devoid of any originality.SlashfilmJanuary 10, 2019
The Upside is a shamelessly calculated affair meant to wring laughter and tears in equal order. For a film about the power of the human spirit, it's awfully robotic.Pasadena WeeklyJanuary 10, 2019
As we launch into a new year, filled with hopes and a short-lived determination to make our lives better, a film like this can serve as an extra level of inspiration.812filmreviewsJanuary 10, 2019
The Upside - a tone deaf, ill timed, and messy comedy - is a film no one: not even Hart, wants right now.The Film YapJanuary 10, 2019
Even while recognizing how much this French tale has been Hollywooded up, I couldn't help being engrossed by the story.Little White LiesJanuary 10, 2019
A dull film that doesn't need to exist.
