Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Brings an enlivening wit to a comedy of culture collision!"
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Messy movie. Not much for teens here."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"As a moviegoer, I never dreamed I would yearn for Leslie Nielsen."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"A depressingly vacuous star vehicle!"
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"The characters are simply not defined well enough to get the comedy going."
‑ Tony Toscano, Citadel Broadcasting
"Mickey Blue Eyes has most of the ingredients in place for another one of those married-to-the-mob comedies, but the central character has to hold it together, and Hugh Grant is wrong for the role."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The love story is ill-served by all directly involved."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The film is as insulting as taking the queen to the Olive Garden."
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
"Barely distinguishable from other recent mob flicks like Analyze This."
‑ , E! Online
"Didn't they already make this movie about 100 times already?"
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Mickey is a limply derivative, disappointingly trivial and hokey fish-out-of-water crime comedy!"
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Gets bogged down in the kind of tangled-web humor that should have died out with Three's Company."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Mickey Blue Eyes begins with hints of originality, only to end up on the trite and true low road."
‑ Brian Farnham, Citysearch
"Without Hugh Grant, Mickey Blue-Eyes would be close to unwatchable!"
‑ Kristan Ginther, Boxoffice Magazine
"much of its material was already covered six months ago in the snappier 'Analyze This,' making 'Mickey' look like a weak imitation."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
