    Wrong Cops does what underground movies used to do: It gives the viewer the sense that what they’re watching is thoroughly wrong in terms of both behavior and style. What’s missing is the transgressive kick, the sense that a real boundary has been crossed.

    Dupieux might have done better to construct an entire movie around his best idea.

    This meandering lark about a corrupt, spiteful and hopelessly distracted police force in a decriminalized, sun-scorched city never quite finds the funny bone.

    Wrong Cops is a tedious exercise in self-consciously hip lowbrow comedy.

    With jokes that fall flat so often, the film’s cardiograph flatlines before the first five minutes are over.

    A monstrously unfunny “Police Academy”/“Reno 911” knockoff directed with just enough winking self-awareness to seem both insipid and pretentious.
