Dolph Springer (Reno 911's Jack Plotnick) awakens one morning to find he has lost the sole love of his life - his dog, Paul. Desperate to reunite with his best friend and to set things right, Dolph embarks on a journey which spirals into the realm of the absurd. On his quest, he drastically alters the lives of several severely bizarro characters, including a promiscuous pizza delivery girl (Entourage's Alexis Dziena), a mentally unstable, jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, an eccentric pet detective (Steve Little of HBO's Eastbound And Down) and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail
"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."
‑ Joel Arnold, NPR
"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."
‑ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
"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."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"For all its dominant paradigm subverting, "Wrong" never feels dangerous or truly challenging, content generally to amuse rather than amaze."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"Dupieux makes the viewer work for it with Wrong. And it's not always worth the effort ..."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"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."
‑ Kate Erbland, MSN Movies
"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."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"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."
‑ Jason Anderson, The Grid
"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."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"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."
‑ David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"Dupieux's absurdism is simply muddled, masking the fact he doesn't really have much to say."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Wrong wears out its welcome even at 94 minutes."
‑ Violet Lucca, Film Comment Magazine
"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."
‑ Jeremy Mathews, Paste Magazine
"... crafts some amusing exchanges and trippy images even if the whole thing never adds up to much in the end."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
