Not your ordinary romantic comedy...
3 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Right Kind of Wrong is an unusual film...

It takes a lot from common clichés that we're used to understanding as typical romantic comedies but it builds upon it and presents it in a novel yet interesting way. The main protagonist is not a common well behaved steady earning good boy that we're grown to expect from this genre. On the contrary - he is a broken man with a joke for a career, no ambitions and plenty of other weaknesses to top that up. The girl however... Well, she's equally humane. :) And that's about it when it comes to things worth knowing about the flick. It's not the genre nor the cast that will make you enjoy watching it - it's just the fact that all the characters are so "real" and not over the top smoothed out for Hollywood role models. As the title suggests the right things about the movie are all the wrong ones and that's what makes it a definite watch!
