Product Description

Showbiz comedy starring Michael J. Fox as Michael Chapman, who, once a child star himself on a popular sitcom, now runs an unsuccessful talent agency specialising in child actors with his brother Ed (Nathan Lane). Michael's showbiz career has dwindled to the odd personal appearance at the opening of a hamburger stand, but his fortune changes one day when a 10-year-old girl, Angie (Christina Vidal) tries to pick his pocket. After she has told him her (questionable) life story, he realises that Angie would be perfect for a new commercial he is working on. Her instant runaway success turns the agency around - and on a personal level, she shows Michael how to grow up and get a life, while he shows her how to enjoy the childhood she's never had.

HASH(0x9d8a0d44) out of 5 stars "He's wacky, he's wild; He's ev'ryone's fav'rite child; It's Life With Mikey..." 10 July 2013
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
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. These quickly-edited sequences of bad singers, dancers, magicians and actors are meant to be humorous, but they fall flat.

Young Barry (Krumholtz in his screen debut) is the swell-headed "star" of Mike's and Ed's humble agency. His awkward attempts to hit on new kid Angie fail miserably. (In recent years, Krumholtz appears briefly as "Goldstein" in three Harold & Kumar comedies.)

When Barry signs with another agent and Angie is caught shoplifting, Ed decides he's finally had enough. The Chapman brothers talent agency is finished. But wait... this is a family movie, right?

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

HASH(0x9d8a30b4) out of 5 stars A Funny, Good, Movie 16 Mar. 2002
By Jeff Meena - Published on Amazon.com
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!

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
