    Who says it isn't? In informal conversation you can use any word you want to.

    YOU: 'I'm in love again!'

    BFF: 'Is it Mr Perfect this time?'

    YOU: 'Not sure yet—let's just say Mr Pretty-damn-good!'


    It's not a grammar question, but a usage one.

    A better title would have been Mr Right.

    I don't think it's incorrect, but it sounds a bit weak compared to the others.
