Toronto Film Review: 'The Right Kind of Wrong'
To all those hung up on the idea of finding the perfect mate, "Benny & Joon" director Jeremiah Chechik's "The Right Kind of Wrong" suggests that compatible idiosyncrasies ultimately make for better matches. Saving its quirk for the characters rather than for the filmmaking style, this intermittently charming romantic comedy gets auds rooting for a shaggy-dog type who falls for the girl of his dreams on the afternoon of her wedding. The uphill courtship is affable enough, despite the obvious creep factor, but lacks a compelling enough hook to seduce a significant release beyond its native Canada.
