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.

L.A. Weekly

Gives its subject too light a treatment for the life-affirming message to feel earned.

The easygoing posture and strong casting keep The Intouchables from stumbling over vexing questions of race, class and disability.

There are much better contemporary movies about dealing with the dynamics of being handicapped or wheelchair bound and overcoming obstacles, such as Rust & Bone, Amour, and The Diving bell and the Butterfly.

A box office phenomenon in France, this crowd-pleasing drama is based on a true story but sticks closely to the template for a Hollywood buddy movie.

This pleasant, predictable, fact-based tale of an unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic and his carer hits all the sweet spots a feel-good movie must.

3 3/4's really. I just don't "get" most French films. Either I don't get their humor, or I find them really, really slow. This one was… More

The Intouchables, is a warm, immensely appealing hunk of French schmaltz. The film's purported true story 'sings' with charismatic and witty,… More
