When Lacasse is talking about how he had his accident (Dell asked him), he says the weather that day was very bad and there was lightning. But during Lacasse's flashbacks, when he opens his eyes and sees his wife, the sky is clear blue with very little, if any, cloud cover. See more »
You see, my dad was a artist.
Con. Con artist. I ain't never see him, though. Unless you wanna count the time we spent together in lockup. We was in prison together. Sweet, right? You know what he said when he saw me, man? He said, "welcome home." Can you imagine saying some shit like that to your kid? "Welcome home."

Having seen the original more than five times I can say this easily compares in quality. The original Intouchables from 2011, is in French so you need to read subtitles which never worried me. It is brilliant so if you like this and don't mind subtitles find it and watch it.
Normally I am not a huge fan of remakes that the US does of successful foreign movies, but this is an exception to the rule and I will have no hesitation watching this again.
Ignore the bad reviews they either have not watched this or are just remake haters. This has everything a good movie should have and it is highly entertaining.
Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman and especially Kevin Hart are just superb, such a feel good movie with a very very good ending.
Just like I gave Intouchables a few years ago this is an easy 9/10 for me.
