Hilarious and lovable!

I think this is a well-balanced movie going from funny to romantic to action-packed. it does not fit in any one genre and that is what makes this movie of the bests. Hilarious lines and ending that makes you smile. I would watch this movie a million times and I recommend it to any comedy lovers or just try something new.

Severely UNDER RATED! Top 10 fav mov all time!!

Ok. Obvs if u have young kids not for them. But OMG to anyone who does not love this movie. Sam & Anna genius pairing ,perfect in this. Date movie perfection. Romance, smart,funny plus action. If u have teen kids u know hard 2 decide on fam movie. Home run. I'm a movie snob. And this is my top 5 fav movies last decade. Maybe top 10 all time movies. I rarely watch movies over & over. Only the best once many yrs hav gone by will i rewatch a movie. Or if i hav watched a great novie alone, I will watch again once soon after 2 share experience with someone I know will enjoy. MR. RIGHT; i have watched at least 6 times since I 1st found it. Watching right now again w/hubby & my 17 yr old son. We all saw it a month ago. Find something new to literally LOL each time. I'm writing on this forum because 1st one I found. I intend on finding more forums because I want sequel! They left it open for one. I want it. I hope they do not listen to ridiculous bad reviews and change to cater to them. Stick to their guns (no pun intended) & make Mr. & Ms. Right. SOON then a Mr. & MRS. Rifht. Trilogy. # 2 engaged,ending with amazing wedding. #3 married perhaps w/a baby Right. But only if they stay true to original. I want it to b relevant enough that my hubby & i could dress up as them for Halloween & be recognized!! Amazing film. Those of u with young kids, you should remember this movie excited til they r at an age appropriate 2 watch w/them. Those of you who gave ut poor reciews...are you insane???????????

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (12 ):

Mr. Right -- an action movie with a romantic twist, or maybe a romance with action elements -- is an unusual mix that almost works. Kendrick and Rockwell have a spark, but mostly the film's trying too hard to fit in too many niches. For starters, it asks the audience to suspend their disbelief in a big way. Who knew Martha had the hidden potential to become a cold-blooded killer? Or that serial murderer Francis just wants to settle down with the right girl?

And then there are the action scenes, which eat up a good chunk of the film. Some of them are well done, and Rockwell has some smooth moves when it comes to hand-to-hand fighting, but there's no getting around the fact that the body count here is quite high, and there's plenty of blood -- far more than in most romcoms.
