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.

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.

The Grid

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.

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 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.

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.

Wrong, despite its off-putting opening scene, carries itself in a bright, curious manner that encourages deeper investigation into Dolph's seriously messed-up week of misfortune.

The story wanders at times and includes interludes that feel like non sequiturs even for a movie hinged on such absurdities, but Dupieux, with the help of Plotnick, has created a unique world of soft chaos and goofy humor.

There's a sly brilliance to the way Dupieux responds to audience expectation by repeatedly, pointedly violating Chekhov's Law.

Composed of skit-like scenes and populated by gimmicky characters, the movie is flimsy, glib, and occasionally pretty funny.

It's a lot easier to like a stunt when a filmmaker brings more than one idea to a movie, whether or not those ideas have anything to do with each other.

The film's heady buzz is invigorating, and there are substantial pleasures-and laughs-to be found in all its real-life-just-gone-sour strangeness.

As this wry, dry and glittering near-masterpiece proclaims, life is full of wrongness, but also full of mystery and wonder.

"Wrong" makes the point that people cannot communicate, not an original idea or more than a mildly amusing pic, but Jack Plotnick turns in solid deadpan performance.
