In this romantic comedy, The Right Kind of Wrong, Leo Palamino is a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings in a blog called "Why You Suck," a huge Internet success written by his ex-wife. Then Leo meets Colette, the girl of his dreams... on the day she is marrying the perfect man. And so, the ultimate underdog story begins as Leo, a fearless dreamer, risks all to show Colette and the whole wide world all that is right with a man famous for being wrong. Written by
This romantic comedy does follow the three-act cliché to the letter. There is also the overused story of converting a long-shot into a done-deal, as in most other romantic comedies for that matter. To the movie's credit, the message that what seems wrong to one may be perfectly right for another is interesting. However, it needs to be executed well. Unfortunately, this is where the movie utterly fails. The plot seems improbable, the characters are shallow and their interactions often make little sense. The comedic aspect is exceptionally weak. So, what could possibly compel one to watch this movie? Only if one requires some escapist entertainment. The main characters are likable, including those who are meant to be the "worse halves". The shooting scene is amazing and, as already mentioned, the key message of the movie is not entirely disagreeable. Overall, the movie leaves that warm and fuzzy feeling that one has after consuming a serving of one's favourite sweets.
