The whole film feels a bit like a dream after a late-night burrito, leaving you wondering if moments in the film actually happened, particularly when mulling over it the next day.

Apart from arousing fitful curiosity, this stretch of surrealism yawns into an arid expanse of flat quirkiness. Meanders between torquing noir clichés and drifting through a funhouse-mirror-maze of SoCal conventions. Little strange poetry emerges.

Wrong wears out its welcome even at 94 minutes.

A work of much playfulness and imagination, Wrong hints at a broader promise of budding, starburst auteurism upon which the film as a whole -- a nice, silly riff that could work better in truncated form -- doesn't fully deliver.

Quentin Dupieux's brand of absurdism lands somewhere between the plays of Eugène Ionesco, the looniest sketches of Monty Python, and the most adventurous efforts of the Adult Swim brigade.

There's a winning confidence to the filmmaking, which is deceptively stylish - Dupieux favours nervy close-ups and blurred foregrounds - and some real soul in Plotnick's performance.

Dupieux makes the viewer work for it with Wrong. And it's not always worth the effort ...

This isn't a long film, but it lacks propulsion at times. Luckily, it maintains its wry outlook and never quite erases the good will that its best moments inspire.

For all its dominant paradigm subverting, "Wrong" never feels dangerous or truly challenging, content generally to amuse rather than amaze.

I'll happily jump aboard the "Why Not" train that Quentin Dupieux so emphatically conducts yet again for Wrong, another delightfully absurd film that so many viewers will wrongfully, but understandably, hate.

... crafts some amusing exchanges and trippy images even if the whole thing never adds up to much in the end.

With all of its robe mocking, its pet kidnapping service, its squeaky turkey dog toys, and most of all its turd memories, Wrong is one of the most unique films you'll ever sit through.

Dupieux has to be applauded for creating a unique universe, but sometimes he seems stuck in it - to the point where we feel we're not always in on the joke.

In Wrong, reality and the world of the film will regularly upend themselves; it's never quite reliably clear, though, that these inexplicable events are happening for a purpose.

Have you ever been stuck at a party talking to a guy who thinks he's a comic genius?

Dupieux doesn't make films for everyone, but he does craft creative and abstract trips that are more than worth going on, even if they're fantastically difficult to explain to anyone who has yet to join the club.

Dupieux's absurdism is simply muddled, masking the fact he doesn't really have much to say.

There's off-kilter style to spare: empty frames, heightened sterile imagery and mannered performances. But there's nothing below the surface that we haven't seen before.

It would take a firmer hand to right this "Wrong."

The key to making a movie like this work is for the characters to invest themselves completely in the weird little universe Dupieux has created for them, and they do.
