On "Mr. Right"

(Spoiler alert: spoilers ahead)

It takes a lot to make me intensely dislike a movie featuring Anna Kendrick; she's one of the few people for which i'll watch a movie just to see her.  That makes it all the more disappointing that Mr. Right is such a colossally inept film.  Nobody should waste money on this trainwreck.  The plotting is inane, the characterizations are inconsistent at best, baffling at worst.  Several moments in the film made me audibly groan, or throw my hands up in bewilderment.  This is one of the rare times where you wonder how exactly someone greenlighted a script this misguided.
