Quick Verdict: Hitman 101
I’m a big fan of Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell, hence my decision to watch Mr. Right. They are a great pairing and I think a different couple in these roles would have made a much worse film.
So the plot is simple, Sam Rockwell is a hitman with a conscious and Anna Kendrick has recently split from her cheating boyfriend and is drinking her days away. They meet and hilarity ensues!
The closest comparison I can make is to the 1998 film The Big Hit. I really enjoyed it originally, but it hasn’t held up over time. I can see this going much the same way. I enjoyed it but can’t see it being a classic.
It’s a basic hitman comedy, but unfortunately doesn’t quite make it to the level of greatness that is Grosse Pointe Blank. Worth a watch to while away a couple of hours.
