Movie Info

Mainstream Hollywood filmmaker Hugh Wilson teams up with screenwriter/author John Grisham for the independently produced sports drama Mickey. Harry Connick Jr. stars as a widowed father in trouble with the law who runs away to Las Vegas with his 12-year-old, baseball-loving son (Shawn Salinas). They change their names in order to avoid a federal tax investigation. When the talented son starts playing Little League, the locals can't help but notice him. Soon his talents attract unwanted national attention. The film also stars Michelle Johnson and Mike Starr. Though made in 2001, the release date was pushed back several years due to an unrelated, real-life Little League scandal. Mickey was briefly released in 2003 in the Little League headquarters town of Williamsport, PA.

Critic Reviews for Mickey

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Despite telltale evidence of budgetary constraints -- production values are at direct-to-video level -- helmer Hugh Wilson (Blast From the Past) delivers a reasonably well-crafted piece of work.

A quiet, introspective film.

Unless you're a serious baseball dad or a youngster who dreams of making it to the Little League World Series, it's going to take tenacity to stay focused until the closing credits.

Grisham's family baseball drama has iffy messages.

It's hardly your typical Grisham project, but, that said, it's a far more enjoyable time than several of his recent cinematic adaptations.

...never quite becomes anything more than a passable time-waster.
