Very funny movie.
Regina Rangel
Did not like this movie...it looks funny in the previews....but is very slow and boring most of the time.

Ellen and Bill Pullman have the best chemistry together and Joan Cusack is hilarious!!

I bought this movie because I'm collecting everything Bill Pullman has done, and I will continue to get anything he does in the future. After purchasing it, I watched it, of course, and I admit that I didn't like it. I felt, in fact, very indignant that Mr. Pullman would do something like this. Then I read a transcript of an AOL Chat he did in which he said that he had a blast doing the movie. I decided to give it one more try and watched it again, this time trying to see it as Bill Pullman having fun with a role and as the comedy it was intended to be. I laughed so hard I almost rolled off the couch! Although Ellen DeGeneres is not as funny in this movie as I know she can be, Bill Pullman is hysterically funny. Watch his face and actions during the charades at his "mother's" house. Watch him in the background (the driver's seat of the RV) while Martha is trying to talk the kids out of the RV. The comedically (is that a proper word?) serious western hero saving his girl and the imitation of a Frankenstein monster lurching toward his bride are things that make this movie very funny. If you want to laugh, watch this movie from the perspective that the actors had a good time doing it. You'll love it! You'll watch it again and again.

I suspect more women will appreciate the film than men because there are shades of Mr. Wrong in situations that many of us have found ourselves in, so it is fun to laugh at the punched-up versions that happen to Martha (Ellen DeGeneres). This film is for you, if you can relax and enjoy inane comedy, but if you are looking for subtle, highbrow comedy, then this isn't for you. I would have liked to see more scenes with the antics of Wit (Bill Pullman), but hopefully a longer version will be released on DVD.
Comedy is hard to do and Bill Pullman deserves extra credit for being able to laugh at, and along with, MAN-kind.

Great casting, well paced script, funny funny funny. A little wacky at times, but each actor commits to every line.

My favorite scenes:

-Ellen/Martha's reaction to Pullman/Whitman's poetry

-Pullman character's "reveal"

-Charades with Ellen, Plowright and Pullman

-Ellen sharing her good news with sister Hope Davis

-Pullman's big butt

One of my all time favorite movies, I've seen it several times and always enjoy it.

If you are a female, feel frustrated about not meeting a nice guy and can't figure out "why me" - you have to see this one. I absolutely adore this movie. I am a product of the late 70's/early 80's and so many references in this movie were spot on. I think that this is absolutely the best movie that Joan Cussak has done and Bill Pullman really shows his comic acting ability. I was lucky enough to meet Bill Pullman personally, while working for a leading airlines, and he was a delight. He indicated that this was one of his favorite projects. Ellen is at a comic best, although knowing she does not date men, I had to try and put this out of my mind. I have seen it maybe 100 times and never tire of it. The soundtrack is fantastic to the movie. It really is genius. I know it is silly - and some of it is a far stretch... However, there is so many truths. Flo (Polly ?) from the sitcom Alice plays her mother, and the actress who plays Bill Pullmans Mom is fantastic. It is really a great feel good movie, and just when you think that a guy is all together (wealthy and handsome) you realize it isn't always how it seems... Do yourself a favor and enjoy this one. It is great!

I laughed my head off at this movie. (I have seen it 3 times) Ellen DeGeneres is simply incredible -- facial expressions and right on target mannerisms.
It is worth the watch just to see her act.
I'll admit some parts were overly silly (Joan Cusack) but you have to go with the flow.
Great laughs!!

Sure, it might not be a significant influence on racial, moral, or family issues in our society. It won't help cure cancer, and probably won't save the world. But this movie's funnier than the thought of Bob Dole on Viagra. I love this movie. And think it's hilarious.

I adored this film. There are so many neurotic, obsessive men out there who can seem pretty wonderful when you first meet them -- so MANY women have had some of the experiences in this film! I thought it was hysterical. I howled with laughter. Yes, it's a little over-the-top, but aren't most great comedies?

This is a silly movie and the reason that I write this review is to offset the unfavorable reviews of this film - AND I LIKED IT. If you like movies such as Ruthless People and Big Business and 90's comedy, this is for you (even though it was done more recently).

Mr. Wrong is one of the coolest movies to just watch over and over and over and over again. I highly recommend getting together with your significant other and just enjoy the heck outta this flick. There is nothing brainy about it, it is not a drama, it delivers what is intended, PURE FUN! Come on, people!
