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.

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.

Those on its perpetually absurd wavelength should soon find themselves left in fits of giggles.

"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.

I'm a sucker for humor of the weird and it hit me just right - but it also feels like Dupieux may be painting himself into a corner if he doesn't try something drastically different next time.

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

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

Wrong is what would happen if Charlie Kaufman, David Lynch, and Samuel Beckett had a baby, then left it to be raised by crackheads who had gone to film school.

The search for a missing dog leads to weird discoveries in surreal semi-comedy.

Being awesome is the only reason it needs, but Dupieux keeps coming at situations from an angle that bears reflection.

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.
