Matt Dillon, Anabella Sciorra, Mary-Louise Parker, and William Hurt star in this bittersweet romantic comedy that takes a poignant second look at first love.
Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee Matt Dillon ("Crash," "There's Something About Mary"), Emmy-nominee Anabella Sciorra (TV's "The Sopranos," "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle"), Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Mary-Louise Parker (TV's "Weeds," "Red Dragon") and Academy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee William Hurt ("Syriana," "The Village") star in this bittersweet romantic comedy that takes a poignant second look at first love, as a divorced young man searches for the perfect mate for his ex-wife, only to find himself reconsidering what (and who) he really wants out of life. Variety says "what sets this pic apart is the richness of its characters and the top-to-bottom strength of its cast," and People Magazine agrees, calling this a movie "with unforced charm and sweetness fortified by fine performances." Directed by Academy Award-winner Anthony Minghella ("The English Patient").

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.

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.

Things are never as wonderful as you'd hope them to be in "Mr. Wonderful." But despite the defective rings it wears around its blue collar, it does have its bright moments.

Even the least demanding viewer will want more.

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.
Rather bland considering its attractive cast.
A thoughtful romantic comedy with a snappy hook.

Lightweight romantic piffle.

It's gentle and affirming and it caught me on a good day. Kindly check in your cynicism at the door.

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