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. Written by Eric Yang <esy@netcom.com>

Does not deserve the bad reviews it got
25 January 2004 | by loveraisinsSee all my reviews

Sure, it's not the best comedy you've ever seen. But it does not belong on the worst list either. DeGeneres is extremely talented with her natural humor that makes Mr. Wrong very original. I can't speak for everyone, but I personally identify with many of her reactions and behaviors.
