Movie Info

Workaholic scientist Jeff Peters (John Malkovich) invents a human-like android named Ulysses, a near-perfect replica of himself with the ability to learn how to mimic and reciprocate human emotion. Unfortunately, the misanthropic Peters doesn't care for other people himself, so he brings in sassy public relations expert Frankie Stone (Ann Magnuson) to teach Ulysses how to schmooze so that Congress will fund his research. Unexpectedly, Frankie and Ulysses find themselves falling in love.

Audience Reviews for Making Mr. Right

  • Sep 11, 2010
    People are defined by the bad things that happen to them in lives. This exceptionally low budget pic makes up for the lack of visual flare with a great intellectual concept and Malkovich in dual roles. The bad part of this movie is Malkovich does an excellent job of portraying a genius scientist which will in all probability bore the general public. Anne Magnuson in her only chance I’ve seen as a leading role gives it her all and it’s very enjoyable. Highly recommended if you live an examined life.

    A beautiful story of a woman (Ann Magnuson) falling in love with an android (John Malkovich), who is scheduled to go up on a space mission. The Turtles make it better with their "Happy Together" song.

    I watched this dozens of times when I was a tween and liked it for some reason. Watching it twenty years later merely proves how dated it is and how bad it was to begin with. Malkovich is alright in a dual role and does some random, goofy and sometimes very entertaining and funny things. The story's nothing great and watching it again years later just proves that nothing's as good as you remember it to be. A star for Malkovich and a star for the memories.
