Anna Kendrick plays a young woman who falls for a seemingly perfect guy (Sam Rockwell) who just happens to be a professional assassin whose services are solicited by a dubious client being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth). As the bodies pile up, she needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem. (R – 95 minutes)
“Mr. Right” excels on the charisma of its two stars. Having said that, Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell do not exactly “fit,” so to speak. But while real romantic sparks fail to fly, the comedy certainly hits the fan as it is always fun to watch both of these performers – individually – play up their charm for the camera. Anna Kendrick is as cute as she is kooky – even though her character is somewhat inconsistent – and Sam Rockwell is as likeable as he is indifferently insane. Moreover, the unique blend of its dark sense of humor and its undeniable adorableness is strangely entertaining.
