DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - Mickey Blue Eyes is a farcical fish-out-of-water comedy combined with romantic comedy. The film could appeal both to romantic comedy fans (particularly fans of Hugh Grant) and fans of situational comedy. It will be most satisfying as a mild diversion. Viewers looking for stronger relationships or a better developed story could be disappointed in the thin script.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
MICKEY BLUE EYES does score some incidental giggles. There's just not a thing holding the gags together, to raise the film above mid-grade sit-com. It's a high-concept comedy that doesn't make use of its high concept, and a genre film that can't decide on a genre. Part of what makes MICKEY BLUE EYES such a flat comedy is that it never settles into a groove, wasting plenty of potential and ignoring the best idea it has going for it. It's about as instantly forgettable a film diversion as you'll find, concerned mostly with leaving the audience with a smile because it ends -- like every good "romantic comedy" worth the name -- with a punch line and a kiss.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Michael Felgate (Hugh Grant), an elegant, debonair Englishman who runs an auction house in New York, is head-over-heels in love for the first time in his life. After only three months of dating his beautiful girlfriend Gina (Jeanne Tripplehorn), Michael gathers up his courage and proposes marriage. But, to Michael's shock and chagrin, Gina declares that, though she loves Michael very much, she can never marry him.

Michael pursues Gina to her father (JAMES CAAN) Frank's restaurant in Little Italy, where Michael introduces himself to a tight-knit and tight-lipped group of Italian-American men who treat Frank with more than the usual respect.

As Frank welcomes his potential son-in-law with open arms, Michael begins to realize that by marrying Gina, he may not just become a member of her family -- he may become a member of The Family.

And Gina refuses to have another of her boyfriends become corrupted and embroiled in her family's gangster life. So, to win the hand of the woman he loves, Michael bravely embarks on a mission to thwart the intentions of The Mob.

Soon, however, thanks to Gina's charming father, Michael inadvertently launders money through his auction house, becomes an accessory to murder and masquerades in certain New York circles as a tough wiseguy from Kansas City: the notorious Mickey Blue Eyes.
