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.

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.

Mr. Right is a mess. It's not a great movie. It's all quirk and flash, with no logic and minimal real emotion.

Despite more ironic music cues, the movie falls in a subgenre that has been largely immune to creeping Tarantinoism: the rom-com.

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.

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

Rockwell and Kendrick do their best in a film that lacks the necessities: sensible plotting, meticulous cinematography, and well-paced editing.

Director Paco Cabezas seems technically capable, and manages to make New Orleans look like a place instead of a romantic ideal or ruined cityscape. Better perhaps to put the blame on Max Landis' overweening screenplay.

A frivolous attitude towards violence, relationships, animals, FBI agents, people in general but women especially, turns "Mr. Right" into a one-dimensional, lazy, mildly offensive attempt at entertainment and humor.

It didn't seem like the phrase "it's no American Ultra" would ever be necessary, but then along comes Mr. Right.

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.

Rockwell and Kendrick's selling points - stoner loucheness for him, peppy weirdness for her - are a strange mix with the screwball tone.

The hitman romcom... is pretty silly really, especially when it becomes a senseless bullet-fest.

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.
April 6, 2016
Loaded with quirk (most of it unbearable), "Mr. Right" becomes leaden at the very moment it should build into inspired anarchy, exiting with palpable fatigue.
Full Review | Original Score: C

For me, there was too much cute and not enough of Rockwell.
June 15, 2016
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
April 8, 2016
Odd mix of romance and action has lots of bloody violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 7, 2016
Full of funny killers and clownish gangsters, ridiculous gunfights and fall-in-first-sight love, it's the kind of movie you write when all you've done is watch other movies. And not particularly good ones, either.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

...the two central performances, charming as they sporadically are, veer more towards obnoxiously broad than comedically endearing.
