  • Summary: Leo Palamino (Ryan Kwanten) has dedicated his life to what some may call impossible dreams. At least his ex-wife Julie would call them that. But Leo is an expert at not listening to her criticism or anyone else’s for that matter because Leo is a stubborn romantic. It is precisely this refusal to listen to criticism that drove his ex-wife Julie to blog about Leo’s flaws as their relationship broke down. A blog called Why You Suck that would become a cultural phenomenon. And so when we meet Leo Palamino, he is a romantic dreamer, a dedicated writer, a dishwasher in a tourist trap, and a celebrity, a man famous for his flaws. Then one afternoon, as the very dejected Leo watches Julie being interviewed on a talk show about her upcoming book, he lays eyes on the woman of his dreams as she enters a wedding across the street from Leo’s house. Her wedding. Expand

    When the movie isn't forcing its cuteness or R-rated humor, there's a frisson of genuine screwball to The Right Kind of Wrong.

    Mistakenly convinced that cuteness can compensate for a lack of basic believability, The Right Kind Of Wrong squanders its engaging leads and cheerful joviality with a plot of stupefying senselessness.

    The Right Kind of Wrong is the kind of comedy that asks an audience to find borderline-stalking behavior charming.

    Rife with rom-com cliches and jaw-droppingly idiotic situations, the story is so off-putting that its irrationality becomes almost secondary to its pointless attempts to prove that opposites really do attract -- when they’re actually not as divergent as they first appear.

    Jeremiah Chechick's The Right Kind of Wrong has more wrong than right and plays like an ode to testicle jokes.

    The film is so in love with its unoriginal premise that it can't see the forest for the trees, treating reality like an occasionally relevant prop and stalking as a sweetly romantic gesture.

    this movie is very good. i liked how he didn't give up and went after her. he is very persistence even when her husband and his freinds attacted him and made him look like a fool. this movie is very different from other movies. I really enjoyed watching it becuase it has two elements romance and comedey. I really like this combination Expand
