Worth Seeing For Any Reason

I've learned not to take seriously the category given to films by Optimum on Demand, which is where I saw All the Wrong Reasons. They have it listed as a "comedy" which is as absurd as listing "Ghostbusters" as a horror film. So I paid and started watching knowing almost nothing about it. I was quite pleasantly surprised. It's actually a drama about some working class young people somewhere (I'm not sure where exactly) in Canada, working in a Walmart-type store, and the relationships and interactions of a handful of characters. I could see how some viewers might find it boring, as it's more about the psychologies of the characters than it is focused on any great action or plot. Two of the main characters suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; how they each deal and cope with their personal experience and symptoms is the theme of the film. Needless to say, they come out at the end better for all that's happened. If you like a film that's primarily about people, their relationships and emotions, then you quite likely will like this. It's engrossing and well done, IMHO.

There are good reasons to watch this movie

A really good, well-acted movie. I just am not content with one thing: the ending. I don't want to play down somebody's fears, not at all, but I do know people like Kate who use their fears as a weapon, who do not even try and cope with them and brace themselves - and why? It is so pleasant if everybody gives attention and has consideration and dances around you like the golden calf. (Stop reading here if you do not want any spoilers!) Nicole - I do not approve her actions, but I do understand her and have sympathy for her - is absolutely right when she says that Kate ruined James' life!! Well, he is to blame, too, not for the affair, but he should have divorced Kate long ago or at least not supported her this long and with this he enabled and reinforced her dwelling on her misery. I do not blame her for having the fears, but if she does not want to fight them for their own sake ( and she does not) and not for the sake of the people around her who she terrorizes completely with her madness, she should have left James and at best get a job where she can work at home without fellow workers. If she is alone she can be afraid and crazy as much as she likes, but if she wants attention and people around she has to fight to get better and not be so hideous and ruin James' life, who had been so kind and patient all along and does not deserve this, and Nicole's life. Not after what Kate did to James and what he did for her nevertheless. I am (only)quite happy with one person's ending, and that is Simon's. He has truly suffered an awful fate, and he fares remarkably - completely the opposite of selfish, mean Kate. And I am happy that he gets a bit of happiness back in the end. Unfortunately with Kate, I really hope she treats him much, much better than James. She was James' doom and is an evil being if she doesn't change. The ending is a completely wrongly placed moral comment about cheating - does not fit here at all/punishes the wrong people. But all in all good movie and it is also good to see Kevin Zegers again in a role he deserves.

Dark, drab, and dull, but so is life, and that is what they have cut off a slice off here.

Straight out you should know this movie made me so bored, and was so very predictable that I spent most of it moving furniture around in my apartment. (Bachelor suite, but still) However, this is a decent romantic comedy (sans comedy) made in Canada filled with Canadian talent who are all very good, and deeply committed to their rolls. The story is sound, under everything you have a life lesson about how people touch other people, and we effect each other in a variety of ways, good, and bad. Then the four main characters who each have a story that is unique to them as far as they are concerned. two PTSD survivors who need each other to grow, and the man left behind who only has eyes on the future, and his own gratification. Rounding out the quartet is the other woman who still thinks of herself as a girl, and continually does very negligent things in the time when she should be focusing on her Son, just so that she can feel needed by someone she thinks matters. So yes, I moved the furniture around in my apartment, but I also watched a pretty decent movie that just happens to be a real dark, and sometimes boring downer, but that is life isn't it? I have to tell you I guess that I did Enjoy this movie in the end, all of the loose ends are tied up in perfect, and imperfect little bows, and to each is their own. So I recommend this to people who like people who need people, and to other folks to. Jesse of www.jesse.ca
