A triumph for Cheadle and Sandler, whose performances strew the seeds of regeneration. Read full review
Reign works better much better than "Upside" because of the cast and because Sandler and Cheadle together keep it lighter. It's an easy film to watch, but less easy to be moved by. Read full review
