Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite telltale evidence of budgetary constraints -- production values are at direct-to-video level -- helmer Hugh Wilson (Blast From the Past) delivers a reasonably well-crafted piece of work."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"It's hardly your typical Grisham project, but, that said, it's a far more enjoyable time than several of his recent cinematic adaptations."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Mickey manages to suck the poetry and camaraderie out of the baseball-movie formula, and what's left over is a mean-spirited hunger for victory at all costs."
‑ Thomas Peyser, Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
"A quiet, introspective film."
‑ Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News
"...never quite becomes anything more than a passable time-waster."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Unless you're a serious baseball dad or a youngster who dreams of making it to the Little League World Series, it's going to take tenacity to stay focused until the closing credits."
‑ Bob Townsend, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Mickey is a 105-minute defense of bad behavior disguised as a good-natured heartwarmer."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
