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.

Critic Reviews for Mr. Wonderful

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (9)

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.

March 18, 2008 | Rating: 4/5

Short on laughs but tinged with a pleasant European flavor.

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.

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

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.

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.
