Eddie, a poor street conman, has his 'guess in which briefcase' trick ruined by Manhattan lifestyle magazine deputy editor Hallie Galloway. Due to a bet with her boss, she must transform Eddie into a dashingly eligible bachelor for a charity auction. In order to pay back his generous benefactor, restaurateur Angelo, Eddie accepts. He not only proves a quick learner and born charmer, the gentleman in him awakes and so does love in their harts. But their true pasts catch up.Written by
At the very beginning of the movie, when Hallie is working in her office and she's troubled by the light from outside, she drops the sunscreen. However, the light and shadows on the floor and walls don't change, even though the light would have been filtered completely. See more »
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.
