Made by Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant's production company Simian Films, this was a commercial success for the then romantically attached pair. Grant is sublimely ridiculous as an English auctioneer in New York, who learns that marrying sweetheart Jeanne Tripplehorn also means getting spliced to the Mob. Tripplehorn's father, James Caan, is the local don and Grant quickly finds himself up to his neck in linguini as he fakes the identity of out-of-town mobster "Mickey Blue Eyes". This gently entertaining comedy is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Hugh Grant, James Caan and Jeanne Tripplehorn. When suave Englishman Michael Felgate proposes marriage to the beautiful Gina, he's determined that the small detail of his future father-in-law being the local Mob boss will not stand in the way of their happiness. But Michael soon finds out that being a member of this family brings mixed blessings.
