The Wrong Mans: Season 2 Videos
Tv Season Info
It's a slapstick version of Mission Impossible, and nobody but [James] Corden could pull it off.
What [The Wrong Mans] had was absolute conviction: in its script, in its impossible, yet weirdly credible storyline, in its performances, and in its clearly generous budget.
The real star here though, is the script. There's never a sense of a line that's been thrown away or a laugh lost, and the word choices throughout are a delight.
This action-comedy caper was always based on the juxtaposition of ordinary characters and extraordinary circumstance.
Broad humour piled atop full-fat drama would surely have led The Wrong Mans to collapse under the weight of its own ridiculousness. Instead, it was a triumph, a fanfare of fights, chases and sly giggles that won you over with sheer boyish enthusiasm.
