Exciting with romance, action and comedy (by bluelea)
It was a great screen play. Good acting. Overall a very enjoyable film. It had everything for everyone in the family. Action, romance, and comedy. Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell have perfect chemistry. It was an amazing movie I highly recommend it. It had the perfect combination of heartfelt love and on the edge of your seat suspense. I loved it. The writer and rector have done an amazing job on this movie. I would give it a 10/10 any day of the week. I highly recommend it. There was some cursing and some people get killed very visibly on the screen. I recommend it for ages 14 plus. I believe <more>
that it was one of the best acting jobs ever by Anna Kendrick. It was a great movie probably one of the movies of the year by far. I highly recommend this movie.
An actually hilarious comedy that never panders to its imagined audience as so many American comedies do and is just a straight up clever funny classic romantic Hollywood movie. With a cast that actually successfully redefines that hackneyed paradigm. Natural comic Anna Kendrick plays a seemingly mentally fragile leading lady. Sam Rockwell as our indestructible hero continues to deliver the most interesting performances on film these days. Tim Roth as the usual Brit baddie but with a mean streak and many hued shall we say accent. Tim just keeps on giving. Where are the Oscars? Half way <more>
through you will be asking for a sequel or syndication which would surely destroy the concept. I'm going to watch it again.
I accidentally found this movie on a plane, and the flight was just under being long enough and sought out to rewatch from the start as it captured me! I really liked this movie, I like it so much I literally created a log in to say so. My review isnt funny, witty or relevant in any way but I feel like this movie is something you should give a go as you might find yourself laughing and bopping along!The sound track is so up beat and the characters are wacky but enjoyable. I sometimes play this movie in the background while I'm pottering around just because it makes me happy! Although I <more>
think the two leads are the oddest couple ever, somehow they make it work. Overal all, super enjoyable and perky. Please just watch it
Aaaaaaaahhhhh!!! This movie was so good!! (by jessicasriley)
Saw this at TIFF on one of the last days, and I was a bit worried I would be movied-out. Thankfully, this film was completely refreshing, and ended up being one of my favourites of the festival.I've always liked Anna Kendrick, but I don't think I've ever enjoyed or appreciated her work this much. She was totally on the ball and hilarious, and she and Sam Rockwell make an unexpectedly perfect couple. The comedy was on point throughout the movie, and the jokes were awesome and very original. You fall in love with the characters and as strange as the plot is, the love story between <more>
them is very believable.Although it's about a hit-man and of course there's a lot of killing in it, it's not too gory, so I'd say most people could handle it even if they're somewhat faint of heart. Definitely go see it. It's well worth your while, and I think it will be considered one of the best comedies of the year.
Its funny with the most awkward way .Loved it (by freego1)
I read some reviews saying this is "shallow"?! not funny and a bunch of other absurd stuff like that. I mean seriously what depth exactly did you expect from such film?.. Enough with the sofa "experts" saying whatever they read somewhere else and actually review this..This film is entertaining with a really unique way, i wont deny that the humor is really not for everyone They create all sort of weird situations that make you laugh with the fact that they even happening like that.It also includes some fighting scenes that are actually really good with nice choreography. <more>
The plot has no holes in it, and i mean none,everything is covered just fine.grab some popcorn relax and you will have fun while it lasts. i would recommend it.
life is hard enough, sometimes i just want to be entertained, and this movie kicks it! wild, funny, sweet and extravagantly violent in a way that actually serves the story and doesn't gratuitously distract from the plot; great timing, great overall pacing, great balance between dialogue and action, perfect casting in both primary and supporting roles. sam rockwell nails his role as cheerful, devil-may-care assassin, and anna kendrick showing her comedic and acting chops shaping up to be one of the great performers of her generation.who wants to be normal?
over all a brilliant film (by davidmooreapple)
I must say i have never seen this or heard of this film until my wife mentioned it and i thought it was a film i wouldn't watch but i did and it was really good. It has everything its funny romantic and a tad crazy and wired but i enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wouldn't normally watch this type of film. i have only seen two films with Sam Rockwell in but he is a great actor and and i will watch more movies with him in and Anna Kendrick plays her role excellently and is awesome all her acting roles especially in pitch perfect me and my wife watch that film a lot.this <more>
film is now part of my top five of all time Armageddon being number one.
Funny and Off-Beat, Mr. Right is Different Enough to Stand Out and Features 2 Great Lead Performances (by CANpatbuck3664)
I really did not expect to like this movie. I rented it on a whim, having heard little to almost nothing about it. I also hadn't really enjoyed anything written by Max Landis before this. But the cast was comprised of actors/actresses I like Sam Rockwell, Anna Kendrick, Tim Roth, James Ransone and Anson Mount so I figured why not? I was surprised by this movie, I can't say its the next big thing for action movies but there was a different style to it. It was unexpected and I ended up liking it despite any prejudices I had going in.*Minor Spoilers Ahead* Martha Anna Kendrick has <more>
the day off and she's trying to do something special for her boyfriend. She tries to cook and botches it completely. She tries to take some sexy selfies but can't do that either. While she's waiting, her boyfriend bursts in with another woman and they start making out on the table. When confronted, her boyfriend blames her and actually starts to propose having a threesome with the other woman. Martha leaves after throwing a wine bottle at his head.We then flash to a man in a purple suit dancing his way through the hotel. It's the titular Mr. Right Sam Rockwell and he's there to kill someone. At the same time there's a van parked outside the hotel filled with mercenaries. Their objective is to take out Mr. Right after he's taken care of his mark. Mr. Right knocks on the door, the woman who answers paid him to kill her husband. He's flipped his mark though and kills her instead. The mercenaries have entered the building but their leader Hopper Tim Roth has elected to stay behind because he's unimpressed with their skills and he says "someone has to return the van when you idiots are killed." Sure enough, Mr. Right mows them down and flees the building with Hopper still on his tail.If you stepped back and looked at the story of Mr. Right, the plot wouldn't necessarily be routine but it wouldn't be wholly original. What makes this movie different is the energy and style in which it's presented. They cover the required beats, the meet-cute, the separation and the reconciliation. But the characters are weirdly endearing and the plot doesn't telegraph where it's going. The movie is more character/actor/dialogue driven but the story has been changed to put an altered spin on it, enough to make it enjoyable.The characters in Mr. Right play with certain genre clichés. You have the hit-man looking for redemption and the girl getting out of a relationship and trying to shake things up. But they haven't been done in this way in any movie I've seen. I would summarize this movie being a quirkier take on Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Martha and Mr. Right have their own way of relating/bonding with each other and I liked how they seemed in simpatico in their relationship while the rest of the world looked at them like Huh? I liked how the movie not only handled the main characters but some of the side characters too. I liked how Steve RZA became a distinct character out of nowhere and how Hopper wasn't the typical angry partner/boss and was more of a shade of grey. It was small things that made Mr. Right a little better than the average genre flick.This movie wouldn't have been a victory without Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick. Sam always seems to do his best work in dark comedies and the combination of his character with his great comedic delivery made for a winning combination. Martha is a character that you can see Anna Kendrick playing but the dial is turned up to the max. Martha could have easily come off as a brat but Anna is a good enough actress to sell it and she has some solid back and forth with Rockwell. Tim Roth, James Ransone, Anson Mount, RZA and Michael Eklund all do excellent work in their supporting parts.If I had one complaint about Mr. Right, it would be the dialogue. The movie had me laughing throughout but the quirky dialogue was a little off-putting in certain scenes. It didn't harm the grade of the movie but instead of having the witty banter turned up to 11 I would have recommended they dial it back to a 8 or a 9. Otherwise this was a pretty good movie. I forgot to mention that the action scenes are well done, they have their own distinctive touch. Mr. Right might not be everyone's cup of tea judging by the reviews but if you're willing to try something different with this off-kilter blend of genres action/romcom , you could have some fun with this.
Mindless Funny Entertainment - I may have a veiled Spoiler or two in this. (by wfhbear)
There are those of us who don't want to think much when we are being entertained. Mr. Right is that kind of movie. There is a lot of fighting, dying, blood, gore, slapstick, and pretty girls. Anna Kendricks is fantastic as a girl with a very strange mind. She is loony. Yet when she figures thing out she is gutsy and brilliant at getting everyone off guard.I'm an old fashioned male. I grew up drinking, fighting and doing many really stupid things. I am also a Vietnam and PD Veteran. This is the type of Saturday evening movie want to see. I sat here with my GSD in our home theater <more>
laughing and even at times yelling a big YEAH!!! My wife would never get down in the gutter with me to watch and laugh like I did here.Mr. Right, Sam Rockwell is a fantastic actor who was able to get into this flick everything every old "badassed" guy thinks he can do or wants to do in a fight. Martha anna isn't like candy coated girls. She is more of the "Jersey Girls" I grew up with. Cute, Beautiful and easy on the eyes. Except "Jersey Girls" all carry a very sharp stiletto and oh how they can use it. Real poetry in motion.The entire cast go out of there way to be deadpan funny. Those who should be gotten are and those who shouldn't don't. The ending was a very huge roar of pleasure and hilarity for me. Either go to or rent this silly movie at home. Sit back, drink a couple beers, and laugh your butt off. Having a "significant other" who will laugh and giggle over this movie is a real plus.I don't think I've given away much of the plot or real spoilers. You need to be very surprised as this movie rolls on. It is part of the fun of this type of Comedy, Adventure, Action, and Romantic silly yet believable movie.BTW: there is no pornography in this movie. You may find a naked butt or two. If you need the gratuitous Porn rent a Penthouse tape to play after you quit laughing and facing punches from your theater seat or sofa.Have you gotten the idea that I loved Mr. Right and that I so love Anna "The Cutie". Enjoy!!! WFH.
