Chris pine blind dating shower
Likeable enough until a corny finale, Blind Dating is directed by James Keach.His wife Jane Seymour plays a therapist who can’t help stripping off during sessions with Danny. Together they prove that love may indeed be blind but sometimes it ain’t enough, as Leeza is already arranged to be married to another Indian-American (Sendhil Ramamurthy, from TV's Heroes).To soften the blow, Leeza assures Danny that she too is a virgin, as if this news really makes getting dumped any more pleasant.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).As he prepares for an experimental treatment that at best can give him black and white vision just crisp enough to identify a face, he agrees to allow his greasy older brother Larry (Eddie Kay Thomas) to set him up on a series of ‘blind dates”…no pun intended… As Danny suffers through endless dates from overacting hell, he finally makes a connection with Leeza (Anjali Jay), the Indian receptionist at his eye doctor’s office.
Brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas) arranges a succession of disastrous dates but Danny thinks he may have found his soulmate in Leeza (Anjali Jay) except she has committed herself to an arranged marriage.
There is also a scene where Leeza laments to her father that her husband-to-be views their relationship as a “merger.” As the scene progresses and her father insists that love is only for the movies, we get a better idea of why she might blow Danny off, some useful exposition that might have proceeded the horrendous “I’m a virgin too! Unfortunately cutting that scene wasn’t the last mistake the director made.
To polish off the DVD, there’s the theatrical trailer for the film, and one for Feast of Love, The Comebacks and Blue State.
Never dropping out of character or slipping into melodrama, Pine creates a persona that an audience could get behind, if only he wasn’t surrounded by newcomers like Anjali Jay who sucks the life out of every scene she’s in.
Even the realistic brotherly chemistry between Pine and Thomas can’t save the flick, which isn’t too surprising considering most of their scenes together also include prostitutes or horrible one-liners.
