    An engaging, often very funny fish-out-of-water story that provides Hugh Grant with his best part to date.

    An enjoyable minor-league lark. But another "Notting Hill?" Fuhgeddaboutit.
  3. 70
    The last half hour bogs down badly, with a cynical fake-out ending and a final scene that borders on non-sensical.
  4. 50
    After the bite and freshness of "Analyze This," Mickey Blue Eyes plays like an afterthought.
  5. With preposterously convoluted plot twists, not even Grant is enough to make us smile all the way through the end.
  6. 50
    A lifeless, confused mess, peppered with laughs, yes, but illogically and crudely plotted and smothered in tonedeaf music cues.

    This movie, despite some funny lines and situations, sinks faster than the Titanic. Not even the presence of such normally reliable actors, This movie, despite some funny lines and situations, sinks faster than the Titanic. Not even the presence of such normally reliable actors, such as Hugh Grant, James Caan, and Burt Young, can save this contrived mess. Expand
