Lee . . . makes a transformation that is both believable and uplifting.
1 November 2000 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big Michele Lee fan. I prefer original plots . . . That said, I was surprisingly impressed by Color Me Perfect. If you've seen Cliff Robertson's Academy Award-winning Charly or last year's TV movie, Flowers for Algernon, you already know the plot of Color Me Perfect. Lee has the lead as a retarded adult who makes a transformation that is both belivable and uplifting. I was afraid the scene would jump from the bubbly, simple Lee to an Einsteinish Lee, but the change was smooth, gradual and logical. The conclusion varies some from Charly and Flowers for Algernon -- the viewer gets to figure how it came out. I couldn't help but be struck by the physical similarities of Robertson and the actor, Robin Thomas, who plays the primary doctor in Color Me Perfect. The drawback is a pouty, egotistical Susan Blakely. Lee fails to deliver in spots but had many more winning moments. Overall, a positive effort worth seeing.
