The Upside is a great movie based on a true story, and deserves nothing less than 5 stars! Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart are perfect together in this movie. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this because Kevin Hart gets on my nerves pretty quick and I don't usually find him that funny, but he was so great in this movie, I can't imagine who else would play his role as Dell Scott. Bryan Cranston did a great job too! We all know he can act, but he did an amazing job playing a very depressed, quadriplegic who is trying his best to live life as good as he can. I'll stop there and let you see the rest if you're interested, but trust me, you won't be be disappointed in this movie at all! They didn't just show all the good parts in the previews either. It has the perfect mix of seriousness and comedy, making it a perfect dramedy.
