Leo Palamino (Ryan Kwanten) is a failed writer. He stood his ground when his publisher and friend, Neil (Will Sasso), told him he needed to make some changes, and the book failed. Now a dishwasher, Leo’s wife writes a blog called “Why You Suck” about him, and of course it became a huge hit, followed by a book everyone read, and a movie deal. People everywhere know Leo as the guy who’s wife wrote a blog about him. But just as his wife walks out on him, Leo notices a bride across the street about to head to the church for her wedding with Mr. Right, a rich successful man who will certainly keep her happy. Leo naturally falls in love with the bride and spends the rest of his days stalking her and trying to convince her that a guy who is all wrong just might be the right one after all.

This was a surprising film for me. I expected nothing from it, and was really blown away. This is a really clever, heartwarming, and extremely funny little romantic comedy. The premise is absurd, but it totally works. The characters are really wonderful, and the back stories are really good. We get to know them, and we can feel the pain as Leo fouls things up over and over again. I laughed with Catherine O’Hara, one of my favorite comedienne’s all the way back to the Second City TV days. She plays the bride’s mom who is not welcome at her daughter’s wedding, and is a pleasure as she steals every scene she is in. This is a really funny film, quite fresh, and was a blast to watch. I was really sad when it was over. Considering the low expectations I had before I watched it, it was certainly a gem that I had never heard of. Every now and then one of these hidden films surprises us and really works. This was one of those. I recommend it.
