THE PLOT THUS FAR
A single and lonely woman finds the seemingly perfect man to date, but soon regrets it when his deranged and possessive other personality emerges and worst still, she cannot convince anyone else of his Jekyll/Hyde true nature.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Martha works for the KSDG-TV program ‘Daybreak San Diego’, co-hosted by Dick and Nancy. Walter, one of her co-workers, Walter, is a possible romantic partner. But Martha meets Whitman when he selects the same song she wants on a jukebox. They fall for each other, and he meets her normal parents, and she meets his quirky mother and her maid Consuela. Whitman’s family appears to have money, and he doesn’t have to work but can afford all sorts of expensive gifts, even though all he does is write poetry.
Nothing was making me laugh, and I found the beginning of Martha and Whitman’s relationship to be badly scripted and not the only part the can be described that way. However, I was wondering if the film was actually bad, or I just wasn’t getting it. I did some research before watching “Mr. Wrong” and heard it described as a “chick flick,” and I’m not female. As I watched, that “chick flick” description was making sense to me. If I had the same feeling throughout the film, I doubt I would be writing a review of it, but things change later on.
The Blu-Ray comes with a trailer as its sole special feature. The 1080p feature is good enough for an HD bow, but don’t expect anything that’s terribly clean. Mill Creek has priced the release right and I’d like to see more Blu-Ray companies get behind older titles in this matter. I’d rather have it in HD, then to not have a release at all. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW!
