    I decided to watch this right when a came out cause I was wondering how the American interpretation would be since I did watch the original French version a few months back. Wow, this version was so underwhelming. I’ll give it to Kevin Hart for giving me a few chuckles but that’s all it had and no heart. The original had it all, made me laugh and cry in the end. I also could not stand Nicole Kidman’s character. She was an absolute a***hole here. Do yourself and watch the original French version with subtitles! I’m the only person in my family who speaks French and they still watch it with me. They all said it was one of the best films they’ve seen. Don’t miss out and skip this pretty water down version.

    Haven’t seen a movie like this in a while. I think charming is the best word
  • Should win Oscar for best picture!

    Based on a true story, this movie is both dramatic and comedic. Covering the difficult process of finding the perfect caregiver, this film captures the challenges of everyday life. It also explores the relationship of two people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
