Why choose Driss over other, seemingly more qualified, not to mention obviously more serious, applicants? To make a funny, and touching, interracial buddy movie? Because it’s not even that funny.
Oh. So the guy doesn’t need one more people treating him as invalid? Well. That makes sense. Touch the Maserati, and the private jet. This must be one of those very, very, loosely adapted inspired by a true story buddy movie.

My Rating: 5/10
