Editorial Reviews

A romantic comedy disguised as an American Pie-type sex romp, Blind Dating tells the story of a sweet young blind man who falls for a woman who is engaged to be married. Hottie Chris Pine plays Danny, who has never had a serious girlfriend. His annoying but well-meaning brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas, American Pie) is intent on helping Danny lose his virginity by hooking him up with several inappropriate women. Then there's Dr. Evans (Jane Seymour), Danny's unorthodox therapist who has the odd habit of undressing as he talks about his dates. Though the scenes are played for laughs, there's something inherently creepy about them since Dr. Evans clearly needs to take a class on boundaries. Blind Dating has an uneven feel because it's trying to be too many things at the same time. It would've fared better had it concentrated less on Larry's shenanigans and more on the budding romance between Danny and Leeza (Anjali Jay), the receptionist at Danny's eye doctor's office. Because one of the central characters is blind, and another works for an optometrist, it is giving nothing away to say that part of the plot involves a surgical procedure that could potentially restore Danny's eyesight. It would've been nice to learn more about Leeza's Indian background; the film implies that the marriage her parents have arranged for her is a bad one (and it probably is). But it would've been interesting to see the family presented as more than caricatures. While not a great film, Blind Dating has some sweet moments, courtesy of Pine and Jay. --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Danny (Chris Pine) is smart, handsome, popular, and blind... and not just physically: He also can't see how wild women are for him. Even his sexy therapist (Jane Seymour) can't keep her clothes on around Danny. After a series of painful "blind dates" set up by his brother (Kaye Thomas), Danny falls for a young Indian woman named Leeza (Anjali Jay), and finally everything seems picture perfect. But when cultures clash, and Leeza reveals that she's been promised to someone else, Danny must prove to her that there's more to love than meets the eye!

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Disabilities' and Possibilities April 1, 2008
Format:DVD
The title and cover of this DVD suggest a film that is more fluff than substance. But don't be fooled by these clues. BLIND DATING is a well-written (Christopher Theo), well-directed (James Keach - brother of Stacy Keach and husband of Jane Seymour) story about the coping of the visually impaired, the quirks of Italian and Indian families, brotherhood, and the gamut of finding the right partner in a world of essential blind dating! One of the reasons the movie works so well is the ability of actor Chris Pine to make us believe he is blind and convey the positive manner in which people with impairments may 'view' those around them.

Danny (Chris Pine) was born prematurely and as a result is blind, and as he grows toward age 21 he feels he is unattractive to women. His family is warm, loving and Italian and supportive - especially his brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas) who runs a Limo service and is constantly trying to find Danny his first physical encounter, be that with hookers, girls from the office or neighborhood, or just referrals - each of whom is a disaster when it comes to dealing with a date who is blind! Danny discovers an operation that implants a camera-like contraption in his brain that will allow him the possibility to see again, even if the images are simply black and white and indistinct. In the office of ophthalmologist Dr. Perkins (Stephen Tobolowsky) is a young girl Leeza (Anjali Ray) who is Indian and whose parents have arranged a wedding with a man she does not love. And yes, in time Danny and Leeza are attracted to each other in what appears to be a doomed relationship - for family reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel great with a smile February 7, 2008
Format:DVD
If you are looking for a feel good movie then this is it. I could not stop myself from laughing and crying thru most of the movie. It is not an Oscar winner but it will win your heart. The acting is upbeat and the characters are all very entertaining and humorous. In a world where love is forgotten, "Blind Dating" captures the feeling that true love still exists. Especially for those who have lost site of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty but charming February 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this romantic comedy directed by James Keach (The Long Riders) and starring Chris Pine (Smokin' Aces) and Eddie Kaye Thomas ( American Pie ). It's difficult to come across a film that not only makes you really laugh but also touches your heart on the journey. I could understand how hard it would be telling a story about a blind person and the odd humorous circumstances they may find themselves in trying to go on blind date (No pun intended) and being politically corrected as to distract one from the story. Well they did it perfectly here with this little gem. If you like Wedding Crashers and Sleepless in Seattle, you will love this story!

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot sweeter than it looks... (3 1/2 stars) November 11, 2008
Format:DVD
By the look of the DVD cover, or the poster, you would think this was a take-off on American Pie or something, especially with Eddie Kaye Thomas in it. It's not campy or tasteless, but actually a nice story.

Danny was blind from birth, and he has a lot going for him. Great personality, great looks, but he doesn't have a woman to share it with. With the help of his brother Larry, he goes on a few (slightly overacted) dates. But, he really likes the receptionist at his doctor's office, Leeza. Danny is being tested to participate in an experimental brain operation so he can see again. But, not that many have been performed. Even though he's comfortable in his own skin, he is tired of women feeling sorry for him because he is blind. So, he is thinking of getting that operation.

Meanwhile, Leeza has a secret. Though Danny doesn't know she is Indian, and doesn't really care, she has an arranged marriage coming up, but she's confused about her feelings for her future husband. Can she break that promise to her family to be with Danny? Will she tell him that she is going to marry someone else?

It was a touching movie with some tear-jerker parts. There was also some obvious bad acting and writing as well, but not enough to stop me from watching it. I think what kept me watching was the character of Danny. I really liked him and felt that he was genuine, and I was rooting for him to "get the girl," as well.

Cute movie, good for a rental.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a film by its trailer. February 16, 2010
Format:DVD
When Netflix recommended Blind Dating, I watched the trailer and was mildly unimpressed. Blind, cute 22-year-old virgin Danny (the future James T. Kirk in Star Trek (Single-Disc Edition), Chris Pine) goes on a succession of awful dates in an attempt to set him up. It looked like a mashup of American Pie - Unrated (Widescreen Collector's Edition). But after watching the whole film, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a sunny little film about following your own path (and your heart).

At its core, the film is the story of a loving Italian-American family (the rowdy clan reminded me strongly of the Vecchio family in Due South: The Ultimate Collection - Three Complete Seasons) whose youngest son was a three-month preemie who was born blind. This never stopped Danny from experiencing the world on his terms; he loves to pull daredevil stunts and is good at sports. He also doesn't use a cane or guide dog to get around. Chris Pine does a good job of navigating as a blind man; you can sense by the way he interacts with his surroundings whether a place is new for him or not, and thankfully he doesn't stop and feel everyone's face on the first meeting.

When an eye doctor offers Danny the chance to participate in an experimental surgery that may give him some vision, his close-knit family is thrown into turmoil. The risky surgery involves implanting a device into Danny's brain that will receive signals from a specially-wired pair of glasses (think early Virtual Reality goggles).
