Mickey Blue Eyes

Mickey Blue Eyes: Friday, August 20, 1999

Finally a romantic comedy not starting Julia Roberts. From the Director of Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy (1996) and Senior Trip (1995), oh-oh, comes Mickey Blue Eyes. Brian, our editor over here at The Entertainment Report, is saying that this is the movie to watch this weekend. But, if Kids in the Hall and Senior Trip is any indication of where this movie is going I think I rather skip it. Besides, who wants to see some English guy imitation a gangster. The verdict on Mickey Blue Eyes: This is the movie to see this weekend. But, if you consider what else is opening Universal Solider II, and Teaching Mrs. Tingle, the verdict is not unanimous.

Review by Java:

Throughout the years from Hollywood we have gone to the movies to go and see  such classics as the Godfather, Casino, Goodfellas, and Donnie Brasco. Just to mention a few. In this week's release ,"Mickey Blue Eyes", we are invited to see the ever so talented actor Hugh Grant star in a romantic comedy. Good thing Mr. Grant does not want to get type-casted as an actor who only does romantic comedies. The premise of the film is that Mr. Grant again playing a fish out of water character proposes to nice
Brooklyn girl (Jeanne Tripplehorn) who's father (James Caan) has ties with 
the Mafia. So this sets the action were Grant's character tries to win the
girl over by trying to fit with the family and not get involved in the
family business. So here we get see an Englishmen try to please both
girl and father-in-law. The acting is forgettable and it is no "Analyze
