The title and cover of this DVD suggest a film that is more fluff than substance.
But don't be fooled by these clues. One of the reasons the works so well is the ability of actor Chris Pine to make us believe he is blind and convey the positive manner in which people with impairments 'view' those around them.
Danny Chris Pine was born prematurely and as a result is blind, and as he grows toward age 21 he feels he is unattractive to women. His family is warm, loving and Italian and supportive - especially his brother Larry Eddie Kaye Thomas who runs a Limo service and is constantly trying to find Danny his first physical encounter, be that with hookers, girls from the office or neighborhood, or just referrals - each of whom is a disaster when it comes to dealing with a date who is blind!
Danny discovers an operation that implants a camera-like contraption in his brain that will allow him the possibility to see again, even if the images are simply black and white and indistinct.
In the office of ophthalmologist Dr. Perkins Stephen Tobolowsky is a young girl Leeza Anjali Ray who is Indian and whose parents have arranged a wedding with a man she does not love. And yes, in time Danny and Leeza are attracted to each other in Chris pine movie blind hookup movie cast appears to be a doomed relationship - for family reasons.
Danny has his operation and is able to see some images, but the implant fails and Danny once again is without sight - but far from being without hope, as both his and Leeza's families undergo changes of heart. There is a sense of love that emanates from the screen, due in part to the script, the direction, and to the acting. Chris Pine is exceptionally fine in a challenging role, finding the balance between courage, comedy, and tenderness that make his character believable and lovable, and never once making a move that breaks his image as a sightless person.
The entire cast is fine, including a hilarious Jane Seymour as Dr. Evans, Chris' therapist with a penchant for disrobing in front of her sightless patient! But the aspect of the film that sets it apart from many is the presentation of everyday type prejudices that can be every bit as hampering as a physical impairments!
This is a warmhearted, very human comedy with many messages. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. I just saw Blind Dating, and I really liked it. It was fairly well acted and, more importantly, it had heart. What I'm confused about is the cover to the film, it looks like a teenage movie with hot girls and bad jokes, but it's everything but.
Chris Pine's portrait of a blind guy seems very real to me, and I really felt for him throughout the whole movie. Everybody are just human, after all. It doesn't matter if you are visually impaired, what skin color you have or what your heritage is.
Watch this flick if you want to feel a little better. FreeLancer06 2 April You can tell from the movie poster that the movie is intended to be taken light heartedly and be fun. Which I thought it was. The main character, Danny, is blind and a virgin. He is not looking only for sex but for a relationship and something that has meaning. His brother does not understand this and sets Danny up on a slew of bad dates; ranging from the overly emotional to the very promiscuous.
Danny finally meets someone on his own, Leeza, who works at his eye doctor's Chris pine movie blind hookup movie cast. Leeza is Indian and engaged but still goes out with Danny. Danny and Leeza are separated and go through some ups and downs but ultimately they end up together.
I enjoyed this movie. It was funny and I thought Chris Pine Danny did a very good job. But I think this movie could have been more than it was.
The two main characters obviously have stresses in their lives which I feel could have been explored more. But instead the movie focuses on the pranks that get pulled on Danny and the various nut-jobs his brother sets him up with. Personally I would have liked to see Danny and Leeza's relationship become deep and really feel their connection over the sometimes crude humor.
I would have liked to see more of Leeza struggling with the cultural differences rather than a few teary eyes when she is at dinner with her family. Being of Indian descent I felt some of her insecurity, but I think had she been more developed more everyone could have really felt it. Chris Pine is lovable, kind, and clever he gets back at his brother and takes his life into his own hands.
Overall, its a fun watch. Don't go in expecting anything profound, but expect a few crude jokes and take the movie for what it is. A comedy about a cute blind guy going on dates. No Big Boy Pants! Well, this was good enough that I watched it the whole way through I wanted it to be so much better than it was.
The romance was so simplistic that it did not seem authentic and they didn't seem to have much chemistry. The family was so hodgepodge looking that it was distracting- yeah right they are brothers, yeah right that's his dad I think this got bit in the butt by a low budget and honestly it was kind of sophomoric Reading the title and seeing the cover made me think this was one of those "American Pie" movies. En contraire mes amis, this movie made me laugh and feel sad at the same time.
The story of Danny's life pretty darn well written was touching. The story tells you how wonderful and sad true love can be at the same time. It makes you feel how less fortunate people go through life. This movie is pure human, and that's what I liked about it. If you like a good story with some funny and touching moments, I would definitely recommend this one as it's one of the better ones I've seen out there.
There are several good, interesting ideas that could have been explored in this movie - one is a blind young man, interested in a serious relationship and wanting to have sex with meaning -- who doesn't view himself as attractive -- and how he goes about pursuing that relationship and what happens along the way. This movie could play as a drama with comedy or a comedy with drama. Another way it could have gone is the experience of a blind young man who undergoes experimental surgery and the outcome and difficulties encountered along the way.
More than likely this would be mostly a drama. Finally, there's the relationship between Chris pine movie blind hookup movie cast blind man and a sighted woman, a romance based movie, either drama or comedy, or the relationship between a Caucasian American male and an female of Indian descent from a very traditional Indian family, and the difficulties they would encounter along the way, again a drama with some comedy more than likely. Unfortunately, this movie overreached it grasp.
There were some very good moments: But the whole isn't even a sum of these parts -- it's a combination of movies that do not cohere in a way that one can call a success. A longer running time would have helped and a better screenplay. The performances was reasonably solid for the budget.
Technically, the film is fine, location wise and situation some interesting choices. The biggest weakness is the plot, story and script. Chris Pine deserves some better roles, to see what he can actually make with something more complex and intelligent.
Some excellent character actors are wasted, although their performances are fine.
