AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It handles its potentially prickly subject matter with kid gloves, but Intouchables gets by thanks to its strong cast and some remarkably sensitive direction.

Movie Info

An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, The Intouchables has broken box office records in its native France and across Europe. Based on a true story of friendship between a handicap millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), The Intouchables depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common. -- (C) Weinstein

The problem is that if, while you're having a good time with these characters, you start to think about the wider implications of the film, you might find yourself somewhat less enthralled.

It's not subtle. It's not innovative. But it guarantees good humour, pranks, japes and welling-up for two hours.

September 28, 2012 | Rating: 4/5

There is something so fatuous about the whole farrago that one will never again believe the old saw that the French are more cultured than the Brits and couldn't possibly be taken for this sort of gooey ride.

For once, the hype is justified.

Enjoy it before the English language version comes out.

Everything conforms to classist and racist cliché.

Audience Reviews for The Intouchables

A buddy comedy that relies on obvious stereotypes for it's laffs, I very nearly puked watching this, wondering how so many found it enchanting. Dreck.

A conventional and predictable French comedy that offers few surprises, even if there are some funny moments and the actors are great. The only problem is that it feels a bit unrealistic in the way it develops the unusual friendship between its two characters.

Choon and Lijun recommended this to me. The two leads have fantastic banter and Driss' relationships with everyone are moving and convincing. Deducted half a star because it played up the 'comic relief' and 'entertainment' stereotypes, but it is very comical and entertaining.
