A young man (Matt Dillon) is trying to go in with his friends on a bowling-alley investment, but finds that his finances are too strapped to attempt the venture. To curb his outlays, he begins arranging a marriage for his ex-wife (Annabella Sciorra) so he can end the alimony payments which keep him in debt. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Writer/director Minghella's second feature brings ambivalence and a touch of realpolitik to the stuff of candyfloss romance.
Without that yeoman cast effort and Dillon's easy charm, Mr. Wonderful could easily be mistaken for Mr. Potatohead.
One of those films where it's clear to the audience within five minutes what must obviously happen, and clear to the characters only at the end of the story.
Mr. Wonderful doesn't aspire to be anything more than it is, and such a simple, uncomplicated presentation, coupled with likable characters, makes this film a fine example of light, romantic entertainment.
An enjoyable romantic comedy, one that won't have the dragged along boyfriend running for the hills. It doesn't loose itself in fantasy land, remaining grounded and realistic.
A Charming movie with a welcome turn by Dillon
Lightweight romantic piffle.
It's gentle and affirming and it caught me on a good day. Kindly check in your cynicism at the door.
- Rita: He's a genuine three S--smart, successful and single.
- Loretta: There are three sides to everything--his,hers, and the truth.
- Gus DeMarco: Don't go out with Italian girls. They're killers.....Start saying a Hail Mary and see if she moves her lips.
- Rita: Can you say the word.? Commitment.
- Gus DeMarco: C..c..c..Which way to Speech Therapy?
