Critic Reviews for Mr. Wonderful

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (9) | DVD (3)

Short on laughs but tinged with a pleasant European flavor.

Variety
Top Critic

Writer/director Minghella's second feature brings ambivalence and a touch of realpolitik to the stuff of candyfloss romance.

Time Out
Top Critic

Without that yeoman cast effort and Dillon's easy charm, Mr. Wonderful could easily be mistaken for Mr. Potatohead.

May 12, 2001
Rolling Stone
Top Critic

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.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

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.

Empire Magazine

Rather bland considering its attractive cast.

A thoughtful romantic comedy with a snappy hook.

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.

rec.arts.movies.reviews

Mr. Wonderful starts off with great promise, then gradually runs out of steam, wasting a very talented but woefully underused cast.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

It's cute, and occasionally fun to watch, but not much more.

Matt Dillon and Annabella Sciorra are good in this romantic comedy. They are a couple that divorced that might find here paths back to one another...a very nice film to see...love both actors!!

Even though you always new exactly what was going to happen next, what makes this romantic film stand out is the realism of the dialogues and expression of emotions.
