When two charming leads come together you would think they’d deliver a great movie with a lot witty dialogue, hilarious comedic scenes and likable romance. Unfortunately Mr. Right is not that movie.
After witnessing his boyfriend cheating oh her with another woman, Martha (Anna Kendrick), goes on a self destructive path hurting everyone around her. That is until she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell) who sweeps her off her feet little does she know that Francis is a Professional Hit-Man with multiple targets on his back.
The only good thing going on in this film is Sam Rockwell. He’s charming, witty and sometimes funny. The rest well…
The movie is flat out terrible, the actions scenes are bland. The dialogue wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great either. You may get a chuckle here and there but there’s no genuine funny moment. The romance is even worse as it’s incredibly unbelievable but the most disappointing part of the film is Anna Kendrick.
As a fan of hers, I found her unbearable. She’s irrational and incredibly dumb. Her material is dreadful and she’s got plenty of eye rolling dialogues and scenes. This is possibly the worst I’ve seen her in any film she’s been on and as a fan of her work, it’s very disappointing.
Last but not least is Tim Roth who tried and horrendously failed to produce a convincing southern accent. An accent he should never ever attempt again. It was cringe-worthy and just plain horrible.
Overall, Mr. Right is not worth anyone’s time, it’s a movie filled with childish, unfunny jokes and for it’s credit the movie doesn’t take itself seriously, it’s borderline a parody film and it knows it. There’s a target audience for these kinds of movies and that’s fine. It will hit those audience and they’ll like it but generally speaking, it’s a terrible film.
