A tiresome, awkwardly directed farce that squanders the talents of its appealing stars.

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

Charming and funny Ellen DeGeneres made her big-screen leap--make that 'dive'--in this most uncharming and unfunny black comedy.

Likeable performers mired in a laugh-free comedy zone.

Fascinating in retrospect as a lesbian's take on dating men.

Pullman, often cast as The Nice Guy, has fun playing the heel, but due to the writing we don't get to share in the fun very much.

Bill Pullman is always a pleasure, but not even his fantastically dry wit can salvage this slow-motion train wreck.

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

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.

A sour, listless debunking of romantic comedies.
Madeleine Williams

A clumsy, repetitive attempt at comedy.

Any movie that has the word "wrong" in the title should be very, very careful to get things right. The makers of this movie were not careful.

There are places where even Matheson and Castle seem ill-at-ease with their own premise, as if they are trying to make both a dark satire and a bright, light comedy. The result is like oil and water.

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