Time Out

Pleasant but forgettable, it's destined to end up as little more than a minor footnote on Pine's megastar CV.

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.

This is harmless, breezy fluff.

Wholly routine rom-com with no chemistry, laughs, originality or heart.
