Movie Info

Would you believe Hugh Grant as a violent Mafioso from Kansas City? Don't worry if you can't: that's part of the joke in this romantic comedy. Michael Felgate (Hugh Grant) is a British expatriate living in Manhattan who runs a successful auction house dealing in rare and valuable art. When Michael meets Gina (Jeanne Tripplehorn), he's immediately smitten, and three months later he asks for her hand in marriage. Gina, however, tells Michael that she could never marry him because of her family.

Brings an enlivening wit to a comedy of culture collision!

Mickey Blue Eyes has most of the ingredients in place for another one of those married-to-the-mob comedies, but the central character has to hold it together, and Hugh Grant is wrong for the role.

Mickey is a limply derivative, disappointingly trivial and hokey fish-out-of-water crime comedy!

Messy movie. Not much for teens here.

The love story is ill-served by all directly involved.

November 24, 2009 Full Review Source:

Gets bogged down in the kind of tangled-web humor that should have died out with Three's Company.

As a moviegoer, I never dreamed I would yearn for Leslie Nielsen.

June 25, 2004 Full Review Source: Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

The film is as insulting as taking the queen to the Olive Garden.

Mickey Blue Eyes begins with hints of originality, only to end up on the trite and true low road.

January 1, 2000

A depressingly vacuous star vehicle!

Barely distinguishable from other recent mob flicks like Analyze This.

Without Hugh Grant, Mickey Blue-Eyes would be close to unwatchable!

The characters are simply not defined well enough to get the comedy going.

Didn't they already make this movie about 100 times already?

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

much of its material was already covered six months ago in the snappier 'Analyze This,' making 'Mickey' look like a weak imitation.

Any film that has twenty minutes in which the only humor stems from Hugh Grant's inability to say such Mafioso terms as 'fuggedaboutit'--that is a movie with problems.

Audience Reviews for Mickey Blue Eyes

Fish out of water story has one good bit: Grant's attempts at a Lower East Side New York accent. You can skip the rest.

Quite sweet and quite funny, not really a great film but a guilty pleasure and when you?ve had to sit through all the chick flicks I?ve been forced to over the years, it?s not so bad!

One of my favourite Comedies, which seems to include half the Sopranos cast. This is a real funny take on the Gangster genre, with some hilarious moments. The contrast of the ever so straight and wimpy Hugh Grant right in the middle of a big crime family has some funny implications.
