James Keach's romantic comedy Blind Dating concerns a 22-year old blind man named Danny (Chris Pine). Though Danny refuses to let his visual deficiency keep him from enjoying every aspect of life, he does shy away from women. When his brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas) discovers Danny is a virgin, he makes every effort to lift that burden from him. Although a series of dates goes very wrong in a number of ways, Danny eventually meets a nurse (Anjali Jay), who agrees to go out with him, although her Indian family may prove a greater hindrance to their happiness than his medical condition. ~… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pleasant but forgettable, it's destined to end up as little more than a minor footnote on Pine's megastar CV."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Blind Dating also manages to be an incredibly muddled 95 minutes in which emotions are replaced by aggressive music cues to force the viewer to care for characters that are paper thin at best."
‑ Limara Salt, Little White Lies
"While Pine is superb in the lead role, almost everything else fails to convince in this vastly uneven, unfunny and only sporadically dramatic enterprise."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"It's Pine that keeps the whole thing afloat, and he manages, astonishingly, to make even the clunkiest, cheesiest lines work, almost transforming the film's chocolate-box sentiments into something honest."
‑ Jes Bickham, Filmstar Magazine
"An inoffensively bland piece of rom-com fluff."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"It's not preachy or weepy. Instead, it's a lively yet meaningful romantic comedy that doesn't lose sight of its central mission: to entertain."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"The whole thing ends with a jolly multicultural dance montage so gruesome that temporary blindness would be a blessed relief."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Small wonder this hard-to-swallow cocktail of bawdy comedy, cross-cultural romance and issue-of-the-week melodrama was left on the shelf for three years. The marketing people can't have had a clue what to do with it."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
"An uneven mixture of crude high jinks and sweet romance, this just about makes the grade thanks to its breezy geniality and Pine's charismatic performance as Danny."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"This film wavers between a sweet rom-com, a gross-out romp and a drama about diversity. Thanks to a strong cast, these three elements work on their own, but struggle to make much sense together."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"The chemistry between Leeza and Danny is the only saving grace of this messy film. It's almost as if the writers couldn't stand to just watch them sweetly fall in love."
‑ Annemarie Moody, Arizona Republic
"The standard of acting and directing is at a very low ebb."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"This is harmless, breezy fluff."
‑ Josh Winning, Total Film
"Blind Dating is a flawed but essentially likeable romantic comedy that succeeds thanks to a charming performance by rising star Chris Pine."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"mixes too many issues"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
