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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Any movie that combines the comedic gifts of Fox, Lane, & Lauper has to be stellar. The writing is good probably 98% of the film (at parts it can be a little trite). And one thing: anyone wonder why we haven't heard from this newcomer Vidal since this film? Simple: she has little to no talent. But that won't take away from this flick. It's funny and, at parts, even moving. ^_^ See it!
