All Critics (28) | Top Critics (8)

The hip, smart yarn has a bite not seen in American movies since The War of the Roses.

A dreadful movie.

Top Critic

As directed sloppily by Nick Castle, this comedy barely lets its main characters develop, even though either of them could be great fun.

Top Critic

This is a romantic comedy parody, but how can you satirize something that's a comedy to begin with? If this motion picture is an example, not only can't it be done, but the result is downright ugly.

Top Critic

A sour, listless debunking of romantic comedies.

Like its title character, Mr. Wrong doesn't know when to quit.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Wrong

Usually I don't give films such a low rating, but this was undoubtedly one of the worst films I have ever seen. Ellen held on for dear life, but between Bill Pullman's over the top performance and the terrible script, it was headed for disaster right off.

I enjoyed watching this movie. Ellen DeGeneres is a woman who seeks the perfect man to start a relationship with but when she seemingly finds Mr. Right, he turns out to be Mr. Wrong because he shows an entirely different and wacky personality. When she tries to convince all the other people about his personality changes they won't believe her. I had loads of fun watching this movie but it seemed a little cheesy at times.
