This has got to be the most underrated movie of the year! Though this is classified as a comedy it could easily take an award as romantic comedy, or action comedy. I'm unfamiliar with the actors but was highly entertained by the very natural performances and solid chemistry (it felt like there were some great improve moments) - This is one of those movies where the unfamiliarity allows you to enjoy the character development without the typecasting.
Many a "laugh out loud" scenes, even to the point of tearing up! The comedy was fast paced with refreshingly original concepts.
The movie packs surprisingly tough fighting choreography and action sequences. Loved the Cyril Gane cameo, am wondering if he consulted on the fight scenes? Great to see the MMA/Brazilian jiu-jitsu incorporated.
A brilliant watch, well done to Netflix and Apple for producing some of the best entertainment this year. You won't be disappointed. 10 because this is the best French movie in years.

Pretty violent for a rom-com.
It was my turn to pick a movie tonight so my wife was quite surprised I chose a rom-com, like she seemed to believe Nouveaux Riches (or All Time High for the English title) was. It might be a bit of a romantic comedy but there is fore sure a lot of action and violence so even men like me will like this genre of rom-coms. The violent scenes were nicely choreographed and looked real. The acting from Nassime Lyes and Zoé Maréchal was good and resulted in a nice chemistry between them. I had doubts in the beginning but the movie turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. The French language is mostly slang so subtitles are advised for people not mastering the French street language.

A nice entertaining movie after a long time.
Its a litle bit confusing at first, but as the movie progresses you start enjoying it. Dont judge the movie without watching till the end.
The whole movie is about a con man who is trying to survive one con after another. Very good acting from the main character, didn't expect it. The roles of villains were not that convincing but they too played their part well. The ending is the cherry on the cake.
This movie has the combination of everything. It has comedy, drama, action, romance, tragedy.
Good movie to watch with your significant other or your friends.
