Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
Following up her hit Desperately Seeking Susan, Susan Seidelman's madcap comedy Making Mr. Right stars a young John Malkovich in a dual role as both the lovable, naïve android Ulysses and his pent-up creator, Dr. Jeff Peters. Also notable is the fine performance from Ann Magnusen as the overstyled image-maker, Frankie Stone. Both actors make the most of the story, which requires a lot of suspension of disbelief from the audience. The goofy premise of romantic love between humans and androids is further complicated by the mayhem of the mistaken identity plot. However, the coolly charming Malkovich and feisty Magnusen work well together to bring a lot of genuinely funny moments to the implausible script. Unintentionally humorous is the dated 1980s computers and machinery of the Chemtech corporation in its attempts to be futuristic. Though the script is fluffy, it remains interesting as a pre-Internet dramatization about the link between sex and technology.
