Critic Reviews for Life with Mikey

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

I left the movie wondering why the screenplay was even considered filmable. There's nothing compelling about it, nothing original.

Dated '90s comedy has some language.

With Life With Mikey, there's a little bit of Christmas in June, and a potential holiday favorite for years to come.

...a forgotten relic within Fox's spotty body of work.

Audience Reviews for Life with Mikey


Huge potential. Hugely missed. Great cast but the plotting is predictable and many of the situations as stereotypical as they come. Shame considering the talent involved.

This is a good showbiz movie, and it's about kids, so it's a great family film.

this is a cute fun and funny movie that is good to watch, but can drag a bit and get a bit boring in places! Michael J Fox plays a child actor turned talent scout that doesnt really take life seriously and dosnt go to work often but when he comes across a girl who can act he knows hes found the big bucks but she is a petty thief who has issues with telling the truth! Its a light hearted movie that is funny in places and is cute to watch!
