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

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.

Wrong wears out its welcome even at 94 minutes.

It doesn't seem to have any pretensions beyond the regimented unveiling of a parade of odd occurrences, plodding along under the banner of absurdity.

Movies need more than non sequiturs, gags and nonsense, and it's there where Dupieux fails his film and the audience.

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.

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."

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

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.

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

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

It doesn't take long for the absurdist humor to pall among a pileup of nonsensical ideas that would be funnier if grounded in a less hazy concept.

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.

Writer/director/composer/editor/cinematographer/auteur/weirdo Quentin Dupieux is a guy who pulls the mat right out from under the Hollywood norm and takes bold and colorful chances

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.

Austin American-Statesman

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.

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.

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.
