Shay McAteer's rating of the film The Upside

It's ok but there are problems with the execution that are apparent when watching the movie which hamstrings the emotional impact. Whilst enjoying a movie, I really shouldn't be thinking about how it could be done better (e.g. by removing the romance that is developed so poorly throughout the movie or at least by making it feel believable). Nonetheless, it is pretty good all things considered.
