Intouchables (2011)

A sickly, rich white aristocrat employs a poor black immigrant as his nurse. Hilarity ensues instead of teachable moments.

The gimmick: Instead of a sentimental Driving Miss Daisy, expect an all-out, increasingly politically incorrect comedy with insensitive jokes that take the pathos out of the situation.

Watch for: a rare comedy where nothing's too sacred to mock, where mockery is the best medicine to mend broken hearts and souls.
