Metacritic Score

  • 90


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

  • 70

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    A lightweight comedy that has more than enough laughs to justify its silly, scatterbrained premise.

  • 50

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    After the bite and freshness of "Analyze This," Mickey Blue Eyes plays like an afterthought.
