Mr. Right :- Watch Mr. Right on Youtube on Fire, For most, “reformed hit man” suggests someone who used to kill people but doesn’t anymore. In the case of “Mr. Right,” however, the label has an altogether different meaning: Instead of bumping off the targets he’s hired to eliminate, Sam Rockwell’s born-again executioner kills the folks who contracted him instead. Not an especially sustainable work model, professionally speaking (it’s murder on word-of-mouth, for starters), but then, this fixer is ready to make some changes in his own life, maybe even find romance with an on-the-rebound Anna Kendrick which is where Max Landis’ ultra-cutesy script picks up, asking whether a character like that can find and sustain love or else die trying. For about a decade after “Pulp Fiction,” such quirky hit-man comedies were all the rage, though in the post-“Gigli” era, (the eerily similar) “Mr. Right” just feels wrong.
That’s not to say audiences won’t appreciate Landis’ winking brand of forced cleverness, which finds a simpatico directorial accomplice in Spanish helmer Paco Cabezas (“Neon Flesh”). Still, this peculiar high-danger romance which plays like watered-down Elmore Leonard or imitation Tarantino is a risky retro back-step for an up-and-coming young screenwriter with such hip credits as “Chronicle” and “American Ultra” to his name. Hollywood has a phrase to describe such projects, “execution dependent,” and this one ultimately comes down to attitude and chemistry and not just Rockwell and Kendrick’s either (though the two affable comic thesps make an adorable couple), but the film’s itself.
