November 1, 2018
The action sequences are a little choppy, but the humour is spot-on and rarely fails to get a laugh.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10

This is not high art cinema, but for ninety minutes Mr. Right is just plain fun.

Mr. Right is a perfectly entertaining, harmless little rom-com film infused with some post-modernist fun that sets it apart from your standard Nicholas Sparks schlock.

Kendrick is a passable heroine doing her best with an underwritten role, so it's left to Rockwell's easy manner and raffish charm to shoulder the heavy lifting.

While too self-aware to eclipse the films of the '90s to which it is so clearly indebted, Mr. Right still manages to scratch the same itch.

"I wanna do something terrible!" Kendrick announces early in the film, and she at least did that - she did 'Mr. Right.'

Anna Kendrick continues to be eminently watchable in absolutely anything and everything.

Very uneven but ultimately passable RomCom guns-and-guts mash-up.

While it's supposed to add up to a witty marriage between romance and anarchy, it's so light on moral implications that it's just tacky.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Teamed together on another project in the future, [Rockwell and Kendrick] could really be on to something.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

...a win-win charmer.

As a keen fan of black comedy, I was expecting a knockout, but it turns out to be a slap with a wet lettuce leaf.

The hitman romcom... is pretty silly really, especially when it becomes a senseless bullet-fest.
May 27, 2016
It's a tale of two undercooked films that abruptly becomes one undercooked film in Mr. Right, a romantic comedy that violently collides with an action thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Rockwell and Kendrick are great together, but the movie never quite marries the cute romance and the bloody killings. Most of the time the two leads appear to be on their own in a completely separate movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The only surprise comes in the scattered moments of irreverence where it's actually mildly entertaining. The rest of the time this half-baked action-comedy-romance just feels like the worst of Hollywood clichés thrown together to see what sticks.

Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick's performances are good, but not enough to save this chaotic joke of a film. [Full review in Spanish]

Mr. Right isn't a bad movie as much as it is two-and-a-half, maybe three bad movies playing all at the same time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Mr. Right is a mess. It's not a great movie. It's all quirk and flash, with no logic and minimal real emotion.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Martha should have fled in the other direction the moment the first blade zinged past her. Which is exactly what the actors should have done.
