Unfortunately, the makers of this independently produced comedy weren't content to let the film be a simple, sweet romance.
has spent the last couple of years languishing in a vault awaiting a release on these magnificent shores.
A lightbulb must have materialised above a studio mogul's head when the movie's then-unknown star Chris Pine recently shot to prominence as James Kirk in J. Abrams's to show us that there was life before Tiberius.
The two hit it off and appear headed for romance, but unfortunately there's one thing standing in their way Leeza's tradition-minded parents, who have arranged for her to marry another Indian-American, Arvind (Sendhil Ramamurthy, from TV's "Heroes").
But all of this is marred by the film's surprisingly heavy emphasis on the sleaze factor.
Just when Danny is ready to give up on love, he meets an East Indian nurse named Leeza. I came looking for something easy to watch, and found that in "Blind Dating" – with a straightforward plot, this movie nevertheless manages to charm.
The two seem to be made for each other, until Leeza reveals she's been promised to another man in an arranged marriage! It's a total chick flick and I mean that as a compliment. On the other hand, I'd have liked to see the female lead take a more active role in her own liberation, at the very least in response to the behavior of her fiancé, and it would have been nice to see some growth in the relationship between the male lead and his sister.The film's title is an awfully bad pun that refers to the lovelife of a young blind man, Danny (Chris Pine).He's determined to overcome his disability but he's ridiculously unlucky at love.Chris Pine fungerar dock hyggligt i filmen och jag skrattade till ett par gnger, jag knde mig ven relativt underhllen fr stunden och den r ocks till viss del charmig. Killen har varit blind hela sin uppvxt, de gr vl automatiskt inte att han, p ett intellektuellt plan, r som en tioring som precis upptckt morgonstndet.Synd, fr nnstans gmmer sig en ganska ok, lttrrande film.And director James Keach and screenwriter Christopher Theo eventually forget about the romance.
