Storyline

Richard Breggs is a struggling actor living in an apartment with his girlfriend. After a conversation with a friend, Richard decides that he is too much of a "nice guy" and that the key to success is to act like a jerk. After his new obnoxious personality lands him a part in a play, Richard thinks he is on his way to being a success. He goes to sleep in his apartment and wakes up in a mansion. It is four years later, but Richard doesn't remember anything that has happened in the elapsed time, due to an accidental bump on the head that gave him amnesia. It turns out that he is now a famous TV star, known for being obnoxious, selfish, and difficult to work with. Richard (now known as Dick) realizes that while his new personality gave him success, it also caused him to lose his girlfriend and best friend. He sets about trying to right the wrongs of the past 4 years. Written by Jaclyn Mussehl <pooh3@buffnet.net>

worth the watch
18 March 2001 | by (Lakeland, Florida) – See all my reviews

I stumbled on this film on an internet site. Since I like Elizabeth Berkley I naturally could not miss it. But I found "Becoming Dick" worth watching on its own merit. The story is of a man who had become rich and powerful but lost his way. Realizing what is really important, he with the aid of his butler sets out to reclaim his life and his love. Harland Williams is very good in the role of the man; playing both the nice guy and the jerk equally well. Robert Wagner is excellent as the always poised butler. And Elizabeth is fine in the role of a woman who once loved but was abandoned only to find her universe once more.
