Storyline

Dolph Springer wakes up one morning to realize he has lost the love of his life, his dog, Paul.

In his journey to find Paul, Dolph may lose something even more vital: his mind. Written by Realitism Films

Quotes

Delightfully quirky and beautifully shot
11 May 2013 | by LynchpinHagsSee all my reviews

This movie isn't for everyone; you will see many a 1-star review from people who like movies like "Bad Boys" and "The Expendables".

Like Rubber, Wrong is shot in a very artistic fashion, and if you appreciate such, the movie is a joy to watch for that alone.

It has a great story to go along with the cinematography though; it's full of quirky, off-beat humour (and not like anything by Wes Anderson, for example - it's another beat removed from "off-beat" entirely) and the characters are brilliant.

I felt that William Fichtner stole the show in terms of the characters on offer; every line he delivered was fantastically strange.

As I said - it's not one for everyone; but if you are a fan of unique cinema, you'll watch this with a half-smile on your face for the entire 90-odd minutes.
