Blind Dating

Image for Blind Dating

In his search for love, blind Danny finds Leeza, an Indian girl, who has more family baggage than he first realises.


Star Trek’s Chris Pine is a real charmer in this low-budget comedy, but the same can’t be said of the film itself. A muddled mix of fratboy comedy, disability drama and cross-cultural romance, it sees blind Danny (Pine) attempting to meet the woman of his dreams. Egged on by his laddish brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas), he goes on a series of literal blind dates, only raising the odd laugh when attempting to pass himself off as a sighted person.

The tone changes drastically when he meets Leeza (Anjali Jay) and fails to realise that she’s an Indian facing an arranged marriage.

Despite the cast's best efforts this is not as charming as it sets out to be.
