2019 | 126 minutes | Rated PG-13
A prosaic remake of a successful foreign film, The Upside is unexceptional in every regard except for the fact it stars Kevin Hart. I can’t think of anything I’d like to do less than rehash the headlines surrounding Hart (including his homophobic “humor,” the 2019 Oscars telecast he’s not hosting, and Ellen DeGeneres’ weird decision to come to his defense). Let’s not talk about any of it. Just be aware that it’s all more noteworthy than anything that happens in The Upside, a movie that's pleasantly, almost apologetically banal.
