| Genuine nurturing film about a quadraplegic
Bryan Cranston is easily one of the most badass actors ever because of Breaking Bad, and this is a complete opposite character where he can't walk or do most things. Kevin Hart is great in drama roles, he should do them more. I barely found this funny at all, except a few chuckle worthy moments. Also I really enjoy one of the director's other films Limitless, Neil Burger is very good at his craft! I remember reading this getting hate, I don't get it with this movie, it has a moment of racism in the beginning otherwise this is a heartwarming cozy movie and I am glad I waited to see by renting it at my nearest library!
