Storyline

Martha is a single woman working at a television talk show. When her younger sister gets married, everyone's wondering when Martha is going to meet Mr. Right and tie the knot. When by chance, Martha meets a handsome stranger named Whitman, the two fall madly in love with each other. But soon Martha discovers little quirks in Whitman... little quirks that become horrifying nightmares. But by the time Martha realizes that she must break up with him, it'll take more than subtle hints to make him go away -- she'll have to get into the most outrageous predicaments to rid herself of Mr. Wrong.

I found this movie very funny!!
27 January 2001 | by (Oregon,USA) – See all my reviews

It started out so slow but halfway through it became absolutely hilarious. Definitely a chick flick for fans of oddities like Titus! I have watched it several times and find it just as funny as the first time. I guess, like Titus (the tv show) , you have to have experienced it to see the humor. If you have ever had someone seem so right who turned out to be so persistent and WRONG you may enjoy Mr. Wrong.
