Editorial Reviews

Hollywood favorite Michael J. Fox (BACK TO THE FUTURE Trilogy) is at his best in this hilarious comedy about show biz. Fox stars as Mikey, a former child star having a little trouble with his new role as a kids' talent agent. He's desperate to find a way to keep his third-rate talent agency from going under when he meets Angie, a young con artist. With her streetwise smarts and irresistible charm, she's a natural for TV commercials and could be their ticket to the big time -- if they don't drive each other crazy first! Count on big laughs with LIFE WITH MIKEY, a fun-filled comedy treat that's sure to entertain everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars really really good movie October 27, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
I saw this movie after hearing about it for so long and I'm so glad I finally did. It's about a girl named angie who makes a commerical and she's really really funny and sassy. It's one of those success stories

LIFE WITH MIKEY is scripted and co-produced by Marc Lawrence. He wrote 31 episodes of FAMILY TIES, the TV sitcom that brought Michael J. Fox to prominence.
.

In this cutesy family comedy of middling quality, Michael Chapman, an ex-kid TV star who bombed out by age 15, now operates with his brother Ed a talent agency for children. Long-suffering Ed (Lane) does all the work while the former "Mikey" (Fox) remains an irresponsible adolescent, even in his early 30s.

The main story occurs during the holiday season. It begins with street thief Angie (movie newcomer Vidal) bumping into Mike and picking his pocket. From this unlikely encounter, and from the way she wriggles out of an arrest for a different wallet-snatching, Mike recognizes in the pre-teen girl the makings of a TV commercial star. After much persuasion (and his promise of lots of money), Mike convinces Angie to audition for a series of cookie commercials. Eventually he's able to help Angie achieve success, both with her new career and in school.

Mike's mentoring extends to allowing the practically homeless child to stay at his bachelor apartment, a cluttered mess that Angie cleans up. He also gets her to reconcile with a father (Blades) who on his own initiative entered an upstate alcohol abuse program. For her part, Angie's several successes inspire Mike to take control of his own rudderless life.

A subplot has Ed Chapman on the edge of quitting the agency for a regular, mundane job. His endless, frustrating search for gifted children at open auditions turns up a parade of non-talents. These quickly-edited sequences of bad singers, dancers, magicians and actors are meant to be humorous, but they fall flat.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Funny, Good, Movie March 16, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This was a funny movie. At sometimes it was a little confusing but good! I think kids who like to laugh or act would really like this movie. It has kids who are horrible actors, that make you laugh loudly. This is a Great Movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Life with Mikey May 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I think the movie is okay, it's supposed to be for young viewers I imagine, but it has bad words and I didn't like that! I don't like movies with bad words or inappropriate content, so even when the movie itself should have been enjoyable the bad words ruined it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mikey- Priceless February 5, 2009
Format:DVD
I got this movie as a gift for someone and they were happy to see that I was able to find the movie they had been looking for. All the stores they went to said that it would be hard to get this movie since it was older. I knew that if I looked on this website I would find what I was looking for and I did. I am so glad that this seller had this movie because it not only made one person happy and made many people happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable comedy May 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Life with Mikey - Michael J Fox is on brilliant form in this entertaining, and occasionally poignant, comedy about growing up, responsibility, and child talent agencies.
The movie is funny in a way that only Nathan Lane and Michael J. Fox could provide, and Cyndi Lauper is adorable as the receptionist. It isn't as touchingly romantic, or as hilarious, as Doc Hollywood but it is another great example of the comedic acting talent of it's cast and especially its leading man.
