On January ninth, I attended The Moms exclusive movie premiere for The Upside. I have been to many private movie premiere, but The Upside was truly a magical movie. This movie will bring you happiness, laughter, and sadness in two hours.
The Cast– Kevin Hart, Nicole Kidman, and Bryan Cranston star in The Upside.
About The Upside– The Upside is inspired by a true story. Bringing tissues to the movie theaters is definitely a must if you are going to see The Upside. This film depicts that comedy and drama can be portrayed very well in a movie, if you have the right actors to play their role right. Recently paroled ex-convict (Kevin Hart) is looking for a job. He only has one day to get three signatures to prove that he is looking for work. The third job interview that Dell attends, he meets Phil (Bryan Cranston). Phil is looking for a health aid since he cannot move his arms and legs. Don’t worry, he can still move his neck. When I was watching The Upside, I was thinking how the heck can these two be good friends ? You have Phil who is a ex-convict trying to give a better life for his son. On the other hand, Phil is a rich guy who lost his wife. An unlikely friendship strikes up between Phil and Dell. Phil and Dell both teach each other important lessons while being friends. In my opinion, Dell taught Phil how to be more carefree and enjoy life. Since Phil lost his wife, he lost a part of himself. If you watch this film, Dell helps bring back a light into Phil’s spirit. Kevin Hart truly brings a comedic side to this movie, which was needed. The ability for comedy and drama to go together so well is mind blowing. Also, The Upside gets very intense with the drama as well. If you love comedy, drama, and happy films, The Upside is the film for you.
My Movie Rating- I would give The Upside a five out of five stars. The ability for me to almost pee on myself one second then almost cry is remarkable. I never ever cry watching movies by the way. The Upside is truly one of the top movies of 2019. Did you know that The Upside is currently number one at the box office? Make sure you see The Upside with your family or loved one before it is no longer available. You will truly regret not being able to see The Upside.
