Did You Know?

Trivia:
After shooting the Little League World Series portion of the film in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in 2001, a camera crew went back to Williamsport during that year's actual Little League World Series to get cover shots of the pageantry, of the large crowds, and some of the baseball action. In an example of life imitating art, not only did Danny Almonte, pitching for his Little League team from the Bronx, throw the first Little League World Series perfect game since 1957, but weeks after the series he was revealed to actually have been 14 years old.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: In Cuba's first game the 10 run rule is put into effect and there are two mistakes in this scene (58:46). First a LL game only has 6 innings. They were in the 6th and Cuba was the visiting team so Latin America should have gotten their bats. Secondly the 10 run rule should have been put into effect after the 5th inning when the score was 10-0.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
Author: Raunchy The Pirate (daoregon8@charter.net) from Central Point, OR

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.
