Making Mr. Right (Susan Seidelman, 1987, 98 minutes)
Another tale of girl meets robot… Before Joaquin Pheonix fell in love with his computer operating system in “Her,” director Susan Seidelman (“Desperately Seeking Susan”) brought us this screwball story of a repressed scientist (played by John Malkovich) who creates Ulysses (also played by Malkovich), a life-like robot in his own image. In order to humanize Ulysses for better public relations, Ann Magnuson is hired to train him in social skills, but ends up falling for him instead.
