It gets seriously comical when the director talks about the complex choices the actors made (to swear or not to swear?
) and how much he respected Eddie Kaye Thomas’ talent (because it must be hard to convincingly play a guy who runs a brothel in the backseat of his limousine).
Chris Pine gives a surprisingly convincing performance as Danny, a blind twenty-two year old who has learned to accept his condition but not his virginity (think At First Sight meets American Pie).
If nothing else, the DVD of Blind Dating really emulates the experience of going on a blind date: you go in with a mixture of hope and fear, you start off pleasantly surprised and then quickly fall into despair when it’s not as bad as you expected…it’s worse.
Of course, you’d have to be legally blind to pick this film off the shelf considering its blink-and-you missed-it theatrical run and that the resumes of the two headlining stars consist of smashes like Just my Luck, American Wedding and Freddy Got Fingered.
Which is why Danny’s girl-crazy, limo-driving brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas, AMERICAN PIE) is horrified to discover that Danny is not only shy and nervous when it comes to the opposite sex, he’s also a virgin.
The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.
A hilarious comedy about Danny (Chris Pine), an intelligent, confident, handsome young man who also happens to be blind.
Not that he’s letting that hold him back — for the most part, Danny refuses to let his visual impairment get in the way of anything.
The DVD also includes a series of 16 deleted scenes, which are basically a series of useless moments and botched set-ups that only seem to exist so that the director could have something to cut.
A few scenes worth noting are a shower scene that displays Chris Pine’s hot body and the film’s recurring homophobia and an added sex scene which solves the whole virgin problem and serves as an alternate ending.
The filmmakers’ major problem, other than their obvious B-Movie aspirations, is that they never decided exactly what sort of film they wanted to make.
