The Hollywood Reporter - Jordan Mintzer
The pairing of Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart in the lead roles pays off big time, with more laugh-out-loud moments than the original and some particularly hilarious work from Hart, who steps up his game after his fun if broad-minded performances in Get Hard and the Ride Along movies.
Screen International - Allan Hunter
In the end, The Upside is the sum of its good players and dubious politics, wrenching genuine tears from a story that celebrates the rich promise of life in all its shades of joy and heartbreak.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
Cranston and Hart fight tooth and nail to keep the film as charming as possible, though, with Hart going to particularly impressive lengths. It almost works, until you remember it shouldn't.
The Guardian - Jordan Hoffman
This is not much more than a light crowdpleaser, but when you’ve got two powerhouse performers like this it is very difficult not to find oneself at least temporarily charmed.
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
No surprises here, folks; just half-hearted punchlines and unadventurous sentimentality readymade for marketplace consumption.
