Alright (or not)

I was watching a movie on Netflix the other night, and I had the subtitles on.

After awhile, I realized that the characters had said "all right" more than a dozen times. What really irritated me is that the subtitles writer spelled it "alright" every time. It's all right, not alright.

And the script writer should have found something to mix in there, rather than using "all right" over and over.
