Mr. Right

I’d pay to watch Sam Rockwell put on a puppet show.  Other than Sam Rockwell (and to a lesser degree Tim Roth) everything else in this movie was really second rate.  The whole movie just felt…. off.  First, the casting of Anna Kendrick.  While she is cute as a button she just didn’t feel right in this role.  And there was the awful dialogue – there were several points at which I cringed.  Hell, even the bad guys sucked.  I think what really plagued it is that it made half-hearted attempts to be quirky, romantic, dramatic and funny.   It wanted to be True Romance, Seven Psychopaths or any other similar films and never came close.  It never really committed in any one direction and that’s probably why it (rightfully) received such bad reviews.
