"Grisham packs the film with plenty of intrigue..."
Written by bestselling author John Grisham and directed by comedy veteran Hugh Wilson (DUDLEY DO-RIGHT, POLICE ACADEMY), MICKEY is a story of redemption centered around youth baseball. Harry Connick Jr. stars as Tripp Spence, who flees with his son, and assumes a new identity, after being indicted for tax fraud. Although his son Mickey is technically too old for Little League baseball, their invented lives allow for him to play another year. Mickey's superb performance draws attention to the team, bringing with it the possibility that law enforcement agents will find Spence. Spence and his son must therefore contend with the consequences of their cheating and learn a valuable life lesson. MICKEY is a family-friendly film that reinforces the concept of fairness in both sports and life.
