Leo Palamino 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... An idealist. A dreamer. 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… 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 (impossible) dreams... Colette is on her way into a wedding across the street from Leo’s house. Her wedding.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
There are even a few physical gags -- including one involving a slingshot, a hang glider and a precarious arrangement of pastries -- that may as well be lifted from another century.Peter Debruge, Variety, 09.13.2013
Jeremiah Chechick's The Right Kind of Wrong has more wrong than right and plays like an ode to testicle jokes.Sherrie Li, Village Voice, 03.11.2014
[Director Jeremiah Chechik] imposes a stiff pace on the proceedings, toggling between broad physical comedy that aches for a laugh track and oddball moments of genuine whimsy.Simon Houpt, Globe and Mail, 10.11.2013
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.Tina Hassannia, Slant Magazine, 03.12.2014
