Trivia

(at around 47 mins) The director's commentary mentions that the sound of a train in the background is because they had to use the production soundtrack from when the film was shot and the train was actually there. Usually, after a movie is shot, the actors re-voice scenes so that background noise can be cleared up, but when the boys were brought back for re-voicing, their voices had all changed, making their re-voicing impractical.

Goofs

Another Home/Visitor dugout mistake occurs when the North Vegas (U.S. West) team plays the Cuban (Caribbean) team. Mickey, the third to bat in the top of the first inning, is shown coming out of the Home dugout (01:17:46) when the Home team always takes the field in the top of an inning. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Commissioner: They can throw curveballs and hit homeruns, they still listen to their fathers... most of the time. And what every dad wants is just one more season. It's the City Championship, the final game of the year. The father calls the pitches, the son always delivers.

"Mickey" was well worth waiting for.
22 May 2004 | by (Central Point, OR) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to listen to John Grisham in Ottawa Ontario, Canada in April 2001 discuss his upcoming project "Mickey". Now, in April 2004 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, I was able to see the movie and again listen to John Grisham at a private screening along with the Director Hugh Wilson. "Mickey" was well worth waiting for.

Using Little League Baseball as a background, the Plot centers on a father/son relationship and the difficult choices they have to make. The drive of "Mickey" is focused on the choices made by the Father (Harry Connick Jr.) and how they affect not only his son, but the lives of the team his son plays for.

This is not a "Hollywood" movie. It is far superior to the high tech improbable entertainment that "Hollywood" churns out these days.

Hugh Wilson deftly guides this fine character study that came from the heart of writer John Grisham. Harry Connick Jr. gives his best performance to date (Deserving a nod for Best Actor) and is aided by the fine supporting cast. Mike Starr, as the coach, is one of those character actors ala Jack Elam, Harry Dean Stanton, Kevin Pollock....who you recognize, but just can't remember the name to go with the face, is deserving of a nomination for Best Supporting Actor as he pulls out terrific performance by 1st timer Shawn Salinas (Mickey) and Harry Connick Jr. Michelle Johnson (Blame it on Rio) also contributes to the angst displayed by HCJ.

This is a fine family movie to be enjoyed by all.
