Watch thw original
4 October 2018 | by xlove-cant-save-youxSee all my reviews

I've seen the original (french version) 2 times at the theater. It was an amazing movie. Sceptical for that version.. don't get me wrong I love brian Cranston and Kevin Hart.. but I feel like some movies don't need a remake and are perfect the way they are. Just watch the original with subtitles
