A lonely single woman finds the seemingly-perfect man to date, but soon regrets it when his deranged, possessive other personality emerges and she cannot convince anyone else of his Jekyll-and-Hyde true nature.
Martha Alston (Ellen DeGeneres) is a single woman working at a television talk show. When her younger sister gets married, everyone wonders when Martha will meet Mr. Right and tie the knot. By chance Martha suddenly meets a handsome stranger named Whitman Crawford (Bill Pullman), the two fall madly in love. But Martha soon discovers little quirks in Whitman, little quirks that become horrifying nightmares. But by the time she realizes that she must break up with him, it'll take more than subtle hints to make him go away; she'll need to get into the most outrageous predicaments to rid herself of Mr. Wrong.Written by

Martha's father says "This is the best God damned gazpacho I have ever had ever tasted," nearly running "ever had ever tasted" together, because the line was "ever tasted" and he accidentally said "ever had"; the director opted to leave the flub in. See more »

Yes, didn't you feed them?
i thought you said you wanted them hungry?
HUNGRY, Bob! Not DEAD! Now what are we gonna do?
We could re-schedule, like, you know, next Tuesday is good for me.
Dream on, little beauty!

Let's talk about "black comedy"...and how this is a total failure...
"Mr. Wrong" had to be written as a "black comedy", but unfortunately misses the mark by a wide margin. The main problem is that the film is not outrageous enough. Bill Pullman's character resorts to becoming a mean stalker after his rejection by Ellen DeGeneris. At this point the movie turns into nothing more than a glorified cartoon. In order for dark comedy to succeed, it can be outrageous, but not mean spirited. Killing perverts to finance their dream restaurant worked wonders in "Eating Raoul". Here, simply destroying someone's life, for one's own pleasure, is totally off-putting, and not funny. A big disappointment, and definitely not "black comedy". - MERK
