This is a really good family movie, and a must see if you are a baseball fan.
An excellent film for the little sluggers!

"'Mickey' is a WONDERFUL family-friendly film that reinforces the concept of fairness in both sports and life. It's chalk full of baseball action and delivers a powerful possitive message that makes keeps you on your toes through the very end last moments of the film. 'Mickey' is perfect for a pizza night at home with the kids or even a rained out sporting event.
I highly recommend this film."

"This is a bad movie. Even my kids (who are big time little leaguers) hated it. The basic premise of the movie is: its okay to cheat the IRS; change your identity and that of your 13 year old son to avoid going to jail; lie about your kid's age so that he can play another year of little league (with an 80 mph fast ball no less); embarrass your City and sponsor, your teammates and their parents, and Little League, Inc.-- as long as you can throw 80 mph and beat those lieing over-agers from Cuba to 'win' the Little League World Series. Oh, and when you do get out of jail for lieing and cheating and breaking all sorts of laws, all is foregoven, and by golly its time to get back to baseball! There is no redeeming social or moral value to this movie. Avoid it. I would much rather have my kids watch Bull Durham (with a little bit of fast forwarding) than this supposed 'family baseball movie'."
Mickey is a Great Little League Film

"I thought this was a great film. Although it's story is about something negative that happens in Little League, through the story it shows the positive and amazing aspects of the organization. It's well written and carries you into the story. The impact of one person's actions on many comes out clearly. Anyone who has ever played Little League, or is involved in the organization should really enjoy this film. I highly recommend seeing it!"
