Tessa's Movie Review: The Intouchables

Film poster

French movie The Intouchables is a terrifically funny movie about a quadriplegic. Based on a true story, the quadriplegic is a wealthy and cultured man who hires a convicted felon from the projects as his male nurse.  Rated R, the movie has bad language and some adult situations, but even those are pretty funny. I can't decide if my favorite scene is the shaving episode or the police chase or...Loved the dance time!  I can see why they chose Omar Sy for the nurse--he is hysterical and charming. 8.5 on IMDb.com; 95% audience approval on RottenTomatoes.com ~Tessa
