Mickey Blue Eyes - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Michael Felgate (HUGH GRANT), an 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, 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, it slowly dawns on Michael exactly what kind of family he is trying to marry into.

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 finds himself inadvertently laundering money through his auction house, becoming an accessory to murder, and having to pass himself off as the notorious "Mickey Blue Eyes."

MOVIE REVIEW

As star of such films as the highly successful Four Weddings and a Funeral, this year's even more successful Notting Hill, and one of my favorites, Nine Months, Hugh Grant is no stranger to good romantic comedies. In his latest film, he plays a British auctioneer who is drawn into a web of lies and deceit with the mob as he attempts to marry a mobster's daughter. Grant has always appealed to me as an actor and as a character, because he fits so naturally in his roles and pulls off every line with such ease. He is definitely the funniest part in the movie, as he should be, because, like in so many other movies, he falls farther and farther into the hole he's dug himself.
