The synopsis will get you. A rich quadriplegic and a poor ex-convict are thrust into an unlikely relationship that has its ups and downs.
So going into the film, you will expect to experience a few moments that are endearing, if not downright cheesy.
Especially when you find out that the film is based on a true story. But what you probably won’t expect is to be emotionally moved.
Here’s the thing: I am one of probably only two people in the entire world who don’t find Kevin Hart funny.
So, I was curious to see how much of his persona he’d have to pull back to play the somewhat dramatic role of Dell Scott, a parolee who has no faith that he’ll ever be hired in a regular job.
By a weird twist of fate, Dell finds himself at a job interview to become an auxiliary staff member to a super-wealthy old man called Philip Lacasse (played by Bryan Cranston), who uses a wheelchair.
