The Intouchables

Rated R 112 min. 2012

This French smash is a series of fatuous scenes showing a Senegalese man named Driss livening up the world of his wealthy paraplegic employer Philippe. Writers-directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano's self-satisfied approach utilizes a repetitive structure of setup-gag-reaction shot sequences that goes beyond pandering. Their kind of filmmaking takes the attitude that pleasing the audience is such a simplistic exercise that they needn't even pretend to do anything unexpected.
