Her father (James Caan) is a mafia syndicate. We're updating our reviews to better highlight authentic stories and accurate, diverse representations. People exaggerate the amount of roles where Hugh Grant plays the loveable Englishman. James Caan plays the spoof as well as he did the original (look for a brief reprise of his "Kiss Me Goodbye" role); Hugh Grant comes across better than usual; and Jeanne Tripplehorn is well cast as are all the other supporting Mafia types you have seen in the more dramatic Mafia films. Special mention should be given to: James Caan's makeup artist-- can't you do a better job of hiding his face lift scars and Jean Tripplehorn's baggy eyelids? So perhaps this isn't the best romantic comedy out there, but it certainly did have a few interesting twists, and some generally funny moments to it. The script is intelligently funny, and the movie is loaded with riotously incongruous situations. Parents: Set preferences and get age-appropriate recommendations with Common Sense Media Plus. Charming coming-of-age film infused with romance. I'm sure it sounded great in the pitch meeting, but then the pitch probably left out the tired and pedestrian script and a couple of astonishingly poor plot developments that thwart the movie's many efforts to win us over. Michael takes his pants off and wiggles his body for Gina to distract her from seeing the contraband painting. Now Grant is being "asked" by the mafia to sell terrible pieces of artwork which were painted by no-talent "associates". I hate it when the script is under developed especially where all the characters and the plot had been set up so carefully and so well.

(i.e. Summary: As Mob films go, Mickey Blue Eyes is far tamer than most, but the question must be asked, “Is crime worthy of laughs?” Mickey spends nearly two hours getting snickers out of Mob activities (extortion, money laundering, murder, arson, intimidation, etc.). Better than average comedy/farce with a lot of good laughs, many at the expense of the overworn Italian Mafia stereotype. An overlooked delight. Summary: As Mob films go, Mickey Blue Eyes is far tamer than most, but the question must be asked, “Is crime worthy of laughs?” Mickey spends nearly two hours getting snickers out of Mob activities (extortion, money laundering, murder, arson, intimidation, etc.). Sexy, funny, romantic comedy at its finest. Meanwhile, there are many missed opportunities for follow-through on set- ups, an indication of a movie that spent a lot of time in post-production revisions.
All in all "Mickey Blue Eyes" is a fair film that is definitely funny for the most part, but it never does really accomplish anything special in the end. Later, a rather unsavory character is shot by mistake and it is supposed to be humorous that Grant and his future father-in-law bond over disposing of the body. This is a comedy all the way, and one of the funnier "gangster" comedies I've seen, in tone reminds me a lot of "Analyze This." What follows are some great gags and some interesting situations. Realizing things are never going to get better (Gina’s father has been ordered by the “family” to “whack” him), he teams up with the FBI in an elaborate setup to bring down The Mob. It’s not long before he’s “inadvertently” drawn into money laundering and murder. Butterworth would hem and haw, afraid of making some social faux pas while pursuing whatever business occupied his activities on screen. The scene where Caan attempts to teach the debonair Hugh Grant how to say "fuggedaboutit" in a hood's accent is alone worth the price of the movie. "Mickey Blue Eyes'" plot about an auctioneer about to become engaged to what turns out to be a Mafia princess is okay.
"Mickey Blue Eyes" is neither. Get full reviews, ratings, and advice delivered weekly to your inbox. Michael is shown with another man in a bathroom stall (dialogue is constructed to imply gay sex—in fact the two are merely switching shirts). And the idea of using an auction to launder money is fresh. Although this one scene steals the film for me every time I watch it, the entire film is filled with gags that really appeal. A daft, upper crust Englishman has to pretend to be a mobster; "Mickey Blue Eyes".
When things get hot, he turns to the proper authorities to solve his problem and he goes out of his way to make it clear that he doesn’t want any favors from the Mafia. A mob spoof with a few really funny moments and good story, but goes downhill near the end. I had heard about this film quite a few times, I knew the two leading male stars in it, and I knew it was something do with with a man trying to marry a gangster's daughter, so I decided to give it a go and see what I would think. And there are some clever lines and some funny moments. In 1999, although I didn't actually see this mob spoof, I heard the line, "fuggedaboudit," was told where that line came from, and saw the trailer for the movie. Check your brain at the door when you see this film. We won't share this comment without your permission. Gina’s brother poses for a picture wearing only underwear. Thank you for your support. Perhaps it's time for Grant's character to move in a new direction and to once again display the talent he showed in "Remains of the Day. There's only been 3 to my knowledge. Hugh Grant is the boyfriend and Jeanne Tripplehorn is his girl, but she refuses when he proposes because her father is a mobster (James Caan, in a perfect role) and she knows they would suck in her innocent auctioneer. Wondering if Mickey Blue Eyes is OK for your kids? In another, an overly friendly cocktail waitress sits on his lap and reaches down to touch his crotch. He was even better in "Notting Hill," and added just the right note of foppishness. Sexual Content/Nudity: No actual sex scenes, but the script implies sexual activity between Gina and Michael. It's a fun film to watch and I think most people will enjoy it. However, nothing goes quite as planned and an accidental murder takes place. Perhaps the problem is that the previous two films were fresh and well written. I didn't actually see "Mickey Blue Eyes" until 2006, and by then, I knew it wasn't the most highly acclaimed comedy of all time, so I wasn't expecting to be blown away.
The comedy is well delivered and it is fun. Hilarious hijinks follow, involving miscommunication and mistaken identity.

Families can talk about the serious issues that this movie raises, including the importance of honesty with those you love and the risks of making even small compromises in integrity, well worth discussing for anyone who ends up sitting through the whole thing. They agree to get married while keeping out of the family business. The writing is refreshingly good and Grant's delivery makes it go. Now we have a very similar theme in MICKEY BLUE EYES, except this time it's a wiseguy and a very proper English art auctioneer. About 2 ½ years later, I've seen it a second time, and while I was still entertained by a good chunk of the film, it may not have been quite the same as before.
Can True Love Ever Run Smooth with Mobsters for Inlaws? This diffidence while mildly amusing could get tedious after awhile. Several paintings show nudity. The piece of art was painted by one of the Mobsters and utilized to launder money through Michael’s auction house (thankfully, Michael is appalled by the blasphemous subject matter). However, I was hoping for at least a moderately funny spoof movie, and from what I remember, that was what I got. He's decided to propose to his girlfriend (Jeanne Tripplehorn) - only to find out her dad's in the Mafia! The costume designer didn't help matters much with her choice of sleeveless dresses for Ms. Tripplehorn who is rather old to be believable as a single girl. Gina’s father loves her dearly and proves it by his actions on several occasions.
All rights reserved. Good movie, rating seems a bit low to me. He first gained notice as the hopeless romantic in "Four Weddings and a Funeral." “H—,” “d–n” and other profanity pop up quite a bit as well.
Okay, so this isn't a major stretch for Hugh, playing a straightlaced auctioneer at a prestigious auction house. Similarly Grant will hesitate, and stammer a bit.
