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.

Unfunny Comedy
12 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

MR. WRONG ** Unfunny comedy, save two or three role-plays, that casts comedian-turned-actress Ellen DeGeneres as a hapless woman with no man in her life, and Bill Pullman as Mr. Right, the fellow she never figured she needed. But the story has seemingly charming Pullman become insensitive and obnoxious - qualities that can be said of what the screenplay evolves into - and DeGeneres wants out when she comes to terms with it. Wasting the talents of all involved, it's one of those films that seems entertaining on commercial release, but disappoints when you actually rent it. Don't waste your time. I saw the movie two or three years ago, and haven't seen it since, nor ever again.
