      Leah B I highly recommend this movie! At first I watched this movie because I thought it was going to be a cute romance movie, and I was in the mood for that kind of distraction. This movie is so much more than what I expected it to be. The characters are very interesting, the lead actors are great, the story is so compelling and different, and it REALLY touched me in many ways. I laughed and smiled quite a bit, but also was brought to tears, which doesn't happen very often when I watch movies. I don't know what all the "experts" watched when they reviewed this movie, but I really don't think they watched the same movie as I did! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Jonathan S We absolutely loved this movie! Excellent!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/11/22 Full Review Audience Member Just another review Flixster lost of mine . So glad I’m switching review platforms 2.8 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/22 Full Review Audience Member The film is an unexpected and refreshing twist on the rom-com format. It's about the power of friendship and forming genuine connections with each other. I enjoyed this feel-good movie with its fun and engaging characters Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member If I could give it a 0, I would. The characters are unloveable, have no on-screen chemistry, and you never really get into the movie. It is advertised as a Rom Com, but it's not, and the entire film feels superficial and amateurish. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member "The Right One" had so much potential but was squandered. Plot was all over the place and demanded more depth. No true progress was made with any of our characters and it felt like we were chasing our tails for an hour and a half. Casting was interesting and actors did well with what little they had. Cleopatra Coleman plays a selfish and shallow woman who doesnt have control of her life. Coleman's facial acting made her actual lines barable for the most part. Nick Thune was a fresh face to me and did well with what he was dealt. Felt like I sat down for a highly anticipated meal and walked away with food poisoning. So disappointed!

      Nell Minow Movie Mom Like its main character, it has a rakish, if amateurish charm. Rated: B- Feb 5, 2021 Full Review Jennifer Green Common Sense Media Clumsy romance addresses mental health; swearing, sex. Rated: 2/5 Feb 18, 2021 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Even without the ridiculous and offensive way that mental illness is handled in The Right One, the movie fails to meet the basic requirement of a romantic comedy: believable chemistry between the would-be couple. Feb 14, 2021 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper jackiekcooper.com An okay semi-serious romcom that is elevated by a bright and sparkling performance by rising star Cleopatra Coleman Rated: 6/10 Feb 13, 2021 Full Review Josh Bell Crooked Marquee Godfrey is more off-putting than endearing, and the stars have no chemistry together. Rated: C Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue This parade of quirky and detached artistic types generates some scattered laughs, but the screenplay stumbles when transitioning into a more serious examination of depression and grief.
