Michael Felgate (Grant), an English auctioneer, decides that after three months, he is ready to marry the love of his life, Gina (Tripplehorn), daughter of Mafia leader Frank Vitale (Caan). Despite his better judgement, Michael allows himself to "help" his soon to be father-in-law with a few small "favors". And soon, "Mickey Blue Eyes" is in over his head.
This was the first time I've seen a movie that Hugh Grant starred in (although I have seen him in Sense and Sensibility). And I can just say that I'm totally hooked. I can't believe how sweet, adorable, and FUNNY Hugh Grant was in this film! He had me laughing until I cried; until my face hurt...and he's so cute, too!
This movie was absolutely hilarious! Especially once Hugh starts trying to act like a gangster and talk with a "New Yawk" accent. Haha. A must see for anyone who loves Hugh Grant, Romantic Comedies, or gangster films. :)
