"For all the right reasons". Is this an idiom? I cannot figure out the meaning of it. Thank you all who shares knowledge. Used in the text in my second post.

You can do things for the wrong reasons or the right reasons- it's usually a literal meaning- the correct/good/moral/proper reasons.
Surprising for all the right reasons, 2009’s Sherlock Holmes brought Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary sleuth to a whole new generation of fans, and cemented the comeback of Robert Downey Jr. as a smooth-talking, all-brawling Holmes.
Good surprises, not bad ones- it was a good film that surprised in positive ways, rather than surprising you at how bad it was.
