Gray Matters
Gray Matters (2007)

They finish each other's sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft--the perfect couple? Not exactly. Gray and Sam are a sister and brother, so compatible and inseparable that people actually assume they are… More

Consensus: Gray Matters tries emulating Hollywood screwball classics, but the rapid fire dialogue and witticisms comes off only as a contrived gimmick.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

Graham carries this for a while, but Kramer spends entirely too much time weakly satirizing Graham's job at an advertising agency, where Molly Shannon's a kvetching coworker.

[Heather Graham's] never looked better, despite the unflattering digital video format, which makes it all the more tragic that she's not appearing in better material.

Pretty quickly it disintegrates into a mishmash of character caricatures competing for airtime in which to spit out overly quirky dialogue in predictable set-ups.

Chicago Tribune

In its genre writer-director Sue Kramer's film sets a new record for bright shining peepers and dimply smirks. It's enough to kill Buster Keaton's entire family.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

There is, one has to assume, a pretty good old-fashioned screwball comedy in all this, but director-writer Sue Kramer seems to have grown up watching Rhoda so Graham, usually a capable actress, has not a word of actual dialogue, only gag lines.

Brandon Fibbs

While the light and whimsical comic timing of the leads carry the film far, even they cannot blind us to Gray Matters' many shortcomings.

The writing isn't sharp enough for the film to work as comedy, nor are the characters real enough for the audience to connect emotionally.

Bill Zwecker
Chicago Sun-Times

Nearly every scene of this movie rings hollow, mainly because we can never really believe that what we're seeing up on the screen could truly happen.

Forgettable coming-out comedy for older teens.

If you need a bit of lightheartedness, this movie is for you. Gray finds a girl for her brother, and a) falls in love with her herself, and b) figures out she… More

A great movie of a young woman finding herself and realizing her choices and accepting it with an open heart. Absolutely loved it

About as pointless as rom-coms come, regardless of orientation.

A bit bland, a bit uninspired, but also somewhat charming and certainly entertaining. Heather Graham saves the day with her funny, charming and delightful… More
