Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Short on laughs but tinged with a pleasant European flavor."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Rather bland considering its attractive cast."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Lightweight romantic piffle."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"It's cute, and occasionally fun to watch, but not much more."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Writer/director Minghella's second feature brings ambivalence and a touch of realpolitik to the stuff of candyfloss romance."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"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."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A thoughtful romantic comedy with a snappy hook."
‑ , Film4
"It's gentle and affirming and it caught me on a good day. Kindly check in your cynicism at the door."
‑ Scott Renshaw, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Without that yeoman cast effort and Dillon's easy charm, Mr. Wonderful could easily be mistaken for Mr. Potatohead."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"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."
‑ Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine
"A Charming movie with a welcome turn by Dillon"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Mr. Wonderful starts off with great promise, then gradually runs out of steam, wasting a very talented but woefully underused cast."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
