Mickey Blue Eyes (1999)

Cinema Sweetheart's Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Director: Kelly Makin
Starring: Hugh Grant, James Caan, Jeanne Tripplehorn
Rated: PG-13
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Crime
Run Time:102 minutes

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. :)


  1. Finally! Not much time for movies lately?

    Being a fan of chick flicks, I've seen a mess of Hugh Grant's pictures... not this one though... I'll rent it. I don't care what they say, Hugh is good at what he does. I suggest 'About a Boy'.

    Oh... and (plese)edit your Post a Comment message ;)

  2. Thank you, Steven :)

    And I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. With school and all, I haven't had much time to watch movies, and when I did, there wasn't time to post. I actually saw Mickey Blue Eyes a while ago, but it took so long to post because I couldn't find an embeddable trailer for the blog :(

    Just FYI, there are two more movie posts coming up very soon!

    And finally, I'll edit the Post a Comment messege.
