Only watch as a last resort on TV
20 July 2010 | by napierslogsSee all my reviews

The made-for-TV movie "Making Mr. Right" is about a successful magazine editor, Hallie (Christina Cox), who makes-over a street con, Eddie (Dean Cain), into a handsome and sophisticated man for an eligible bachelor auction.

It's supposed to be a romantic comedy, but there's no comedy to it. The story is lame, and it moves really slowly since this is yet another in the long line of Pygmalian-esquire movies and we have all seen it many times before. On the slight positive side, they at least showed Eddie bringing affirmative additions to Hallie's life, and at least she wasn't 'perfect'. Eddie was made out to be too boorish and uncivilized at the beginning that the film can't rise above.

"Making Mr. Right" is certainly not a good movie, but if it's a lazy afternoon and you find it on TV, you could watch it. But don't search this one out.
