    Still not working. Even after restarting the computer or turning off/on the magic mouse the right click function does not work.

    Yeah, this is not the problem that most folks are having. Both with Lion and Mountain Lion, there is a “foreign” plist somewhere that is overriding the setting for the mouse. It only affects the magic mouse and disables the “secondary click” function (no matter what side it is set for) as almost every post I see about this says that track pads secondary click works and CTRL -> Click works to bring up secondary click functions.
