Movies based on True Stories are always the most intriguing to me and probably my favorite type of movies.  My Top List of Movies, based on True stories, are as follows:

  1. A Beautiful Mind
  2. The Great Debators
  3. The Mule
  4. Rosewood
  5. ...and now I have a new Movie added to 'The List' ... The Upside, Kevin Hart's new movie.  I didn't really know what to expect, especially after hearing Kevin Hart C0-Host the Steve Harvey Morning Shown this past Friday and share that this was his first role where he's playing a serious role as opposed to a comedic role.  Well, he was half-way right as I don't think Kevin Hart to go without being funny.  Although his role in 'The Upside' is definitely a change for Hart, he is still very funny in parts throughout the movie.

Kevin Hart's Co-Star, Bryan Cranston, and the gorgeous Nicole Kidman are phenomenal in the movie as well.  The mentions of Buffalo, NY n the movie were a pleasant surprise, especially since the references are not fictional...the reference to Buffalo was real, authentic, and whatever it is I'm talking about (which I'm not telling) will put a smile on your face as well.

I'm giving 'The Upside' a NO DOWN-SIDE rating of 10 out of 10 ...the movie is worth the won't be disappointed.
