Storyline

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

Goofs

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.

Worth Seeing For Any Reason
28 June 2015 | by Moviegoer19See all my reviews

I've learned not to take seriously the category given to films by Optimum on Demand, which is where I saw All the Wrong Reasons. They have it listed as a "comedy" which is as absurd as listing "Ghostbusters" as a horror film. So I paid and started watching knowing almost nothing about it. I was quite pleasantly surprised. It's actually a drama about some working class young people somewhere (I'm not sure where exactly) in Canada, working in a Walmart-type store, and the relationships and interactions of a handful of characters. I could see how some viewers might find it boring, as it's more about the psychologies of the characters than it is focused on any great action or plot. Two of the main characters suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; how they each deal and cope with their personal experience and symptoms is the theme of the film. Needless to say, they come out at the end better for all that's happened. If you like a film that's primarily about people, their relationships and emotions, then you quite likely will like this. It's engrossing and well done, IMHO.
