All the Wrong Reasons is an ensemble film about four co-workers at a big box department store. Since witnessing a tragic family event, Kate has kept herself as isolated as physically possible, even at work. Her husband James, the store's ambitious manager, does his best to force Kate out of her shell but Kate wants her world to remain exactly as it is. Missing intimacy, James becomes close with Nicole, a cashier who is holding onto what's left of her youth while juggling single motherhood. When a new temp employee is hired, his presence shakes up the whole store, for all the wrong reasons. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


This was Cory Monteith's last film released before his untimely demise in July 2013 See more »


At about 3/4 through the movie, when Nicole confronts Kate about James, when Nicole enters, Kate tells her "Employees aren't allowed to be here". However, there are banks of lockers, stating that this is where employees store their personal effects. It's possible Kate meant that employees can't be there during their shift, for security purposes, but Nicole was in street clothes, she'd need access to the lockers if she was going on duty.

User Reviews

Only for Cory Monteith
7 September 2020 | by khazrn-00663See all my reviews

Reading other reviews made me want to leave one. I only sought this movie because I love Cory. I'd watch paint dry if he was on the screen. I prepared for the slow pace or boredom one reviewer said because every Canadian movie I've ever watched is extremely Slow paced. I found Kate selfish and rude. She was not a very sympathetic character. Can't blame the cashier for wanting to climb James (Cory) like a tree. One look at the dimples and I'd be goo.
