Uptight female magazine editor, Hallie Galloway (Christina Cox, Blood Ties), is the very definition of a successful woman. Ambitious, sharp, and focused, Hallie is close to the promotion that she s worked so hard to achieve. Everything is coming together for her professionally, but she s about to get a curve ball she didn t expect.
In a modern-day reversal of My Fair Lady, Hallie makes a bet with her best friend that she can transform a scruffy con man (Dean Cain, Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman) into her magazine's "Bachelor of the Year." A shave and a haircut later, he's revealed as a handsomely charming rogue. Hallie teaches him manners and etiquette, while he teaches her to live in the moment. As sparks fly, love sets out to conquers the class divide.

Hallie Galloway (curvy Christina Cox) is in full control of her universe. An uptight, ambitious features editor of the Manhattan Line magazine, she's inches away from that Senior Editor promotion. In a departmental brainstorming session, Hallie presents a magazine feature which would showcase the three most eligible confirmed bachelors, culminating in an auction in which the ladies could bid on their preferred bachelor. If Hallie pulls this off, she lands that Senior Editor gig. And since Hallie is in full control of her universe, no way does her project get derailed.
Her project gets derailed when she bumps into a slovenly street hustler named Eddie (Dean Cain, sporting unconvincing facial hair) and she ends up making a bet with a rival co-worker that she could transform Eddie into not only a sophisticated gent but also into her magazine's Bachelor of the Year. Exit Eddie who "smells like dirty spaghetti" and in dire need of lessons in manners and elocution. And in the fullness of several commercial breaks, enter the elegant, articulate Edmund Penbroke III. He doesn't slurp or anything.
While nowhere near the dizzying stratosphere of PYGMALION or MY FAIR LADY, MAKING MR. RIGHT has its moments. This is mostly thanks to the two leads who manage a fine chemistry between them. There won't be any wagers taken on how the story'll end up. The plot hits all the familiar beats. It's Dean Cain, so we know he'll polish up just fine, just as we know that the uptight Hallie Galloway - or, as Eddie tends to call her, "Hallie Gal" - will loosen up, thanks to Eddie's influence. But, as they say, it's all about the journey. There's fun in watching Eddie and Hallie circling each other. And I was surprised at how gratified I was when, at the end, the closing captions revealed what lay in store for these two. No spoiler when I say that by the time it's all done, Hallie Galloway no longer controls her universe, and her preferring it that way.
