Rip off from "The Intouchables"
25 October 2018 | by berkanmetinSee all my reviews

I've seen the Original movie with François Cluzet and Omar Sy which are in my opinion superior acters in this particular movie. If you are interested in this movie watch the French original "The Intouchables" first and come back to it later. After that make up your mind.

I personally find it such a big Rip-off from a great movie.

On its own its a decent movie but if you take the same script same story same scenes from a movie and give it different acters it doesn't make a different movie.

I wish I could give it 0 stars just for the fact its a pure rip off from The Intouchables.
