Consensus: Wrong is strange and meandering, but its absurdist vignettes reveal a unique, wry wit.

Adam Nayman
Globe and Mail

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.

Joel Arnold

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.

The Playlist

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.

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

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.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta)

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.

David Lewis
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

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

Wrong wears out its welcome even at 94 minutes.
