Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Most disastrous is the script, which carries about as much dramatic weight as an episode of 'Heartbeat'."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"It means well, but it's one of those shoddy, very-low-budget British films that don't merit even a tiny release."
‑ Nicholas Barber, Independent on Sunday
"Mr Right must surely be the first gay movie that manages, by virtue of its overwhelming ineptitude, to be curiously homophobic."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"The mix of sentimental melodrama and comedy of manners might lack a little edge at times but the film remains likeable and more enjoyable than many low-budget British ventures."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"A shallow, superficial film about shallow, superficial people. It's nicely shot and features some strong performances, but as it tries to be both racy and moralistic, it won't satisfy many audiences."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A patchy film."
‑ Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
"Despite efforts towards the end to import a little serious sentiment, much of the time it feels as though Mr Right is setting out deliberately to confirm every nasty stereotype about gay men."
‑ Robert Hanks, Independent
"A perkily performed Soho soap that somehow also manages to be mesmerically depressing."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Agay romantic comedy that earns 10 points for PC outreach work and one for wit."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"It isn't brave enough to show anyone actually being gay and having sex, but gathers its preening cast around a dinner table to bitch at one another."
‑ Jason Solomons, Observer [UK]
"This interminable, Soho-based gay relationship drama is especially marred by the dire acting of Luke de Woolfson, who plays a bad actor."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Wants to be a Sex and the City for the Soho queen scene, only without the sex."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"There's a halfway decent film buried somewhere within Mr Right but it never quite emerges."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
