Mr. Wonderful is a 1993 romantic comedy film directed by Academy Award winning director Anthony Minghella.

The film stars Matt Dillon, Annabella Sciorra, and features one of the few appearances of Vincent D'Onofrio as a romantic character.


Gus (Matt Dillon), an electrician, wants to purchase a bowling alley with his friends. The problem is that he still pays alimony to his ex-wife, Leonora (Annabella Sciorra). Gus, realizing that if he can get Leonora to remarry the alimony stops, attempts to match-make Leonora with various men. James Gandolfini has a small part as one of Lenora's would-be suitors.

In the course of his match-making, and after Gus breaks up with his girlfriend, Rita (Mary-Louise Parker), Gus and Leonora discover that they still care about each other.
