Mickey Blue Eyes | 1999 | PG-13 | - 4.5.5

In this comedy, an English art auctioneer (Hugh Grant) determined to show the woman he loves (Jeanne Tripplehorn) that he won't get involved with her mobster family, ends up getting involved with her mobster family. Also with James Caan, New York Joe Catalfumo, Margaret Devine, John DiResta, James Fox, Mark Margolis, Scott Thompson, Joe Viterelli and Burt Young. [1:42]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Many kisses; a few are passionate. A man rubs his clothed nipples, then drops his pants and rubs his boxer-clad buttocks suggestively in front of a woman. A woman sits on a man's lap, he kisses her and she reaches for his clothed crotch before they're interrupted. A man overhears two men in a bathroom stall talking as if they were having sexual contact (nothing explicit is said; they're simply exchanging clothing). We see a woman's bare buttocks in a classical nude painting; also, we see some scantily clad people and a Jesus figure wearing panties and a garter belt in a few modern paintings. We see some women in cleavage-revealing tops and a man in his underwear.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Several people appear to be shot -- complete with splattering blood and blood on their clothing. A bullet shot at a ceiling ricochets and hits someone; we see the body lying on the ground in a puddle of blood and later see the body, wrapped in a garbage bag, being carried out of the room. We see a corpse with a small bullet hole in its forehead. A man accidentally kicks a gun into a waiter's stomach and the waiter (along with many glasses) tumbles to the floor. A man punches another and hits him repeatedly with a lamp, a man playfully punches a man's stomach several times (it's obvious it hurts a little), a man squeezes another's hand (we hear crunching noises), a man throws another out of a building and a man is forced to run on a treadmill. Several scenes of threatening with guns; in one scene, gunfire is exchanged but no one is shot. In a couple of paintings we see a Jesus figure tied to a tree with arrows piercing his torso (some blood is visible) and a Jesus figure holding a machine gun and hovering over a man with several bloody bullet wounds.

LANGUAGE 5 - Two F-words, several anatomical references, a couple of scatological references, many mild obscenities and a few instances of name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
