Product Description

In this hilarious romantic comedy, Gray (Heather Graham) helps her brother (Tom Cavanaugh) find the love of his life. But the night before her brother's wedding, Gray's world is turned upside-down when she discovers that she has feelings for his fiancé (Bridget Moynahan)! With the help of a sarcastic co-worker (Molly Shannon), a sympathetic cab driver (Alan Cumming), and her therapist (Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek), Gray is forced to figure out who she really is.

Gray Matters has one of the most adorable casts of any movie in recent years--the combined sweetness of Heather Graham (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me), Bridget Moynahan (Lord of War), Molly Shannon (Year of the Dog), Thomas Cavanagh (Ed), Alan Cumming (X-Men 2), and Sissy Spacek (Carrie, In the Bedroom) narrowly avoids being diabetes-inducing. Gray (Graham) and her brother Sam (Cavanagh) have been best friends forever--so close that they find it hard to date. Gray pushes Sam into asking out Charlie (Moynahan), but when Sam and Charlie hit it off so well they spontaneously decide to get married, Gray finds herself unexpectedly dismayed... but not as dismayed as she is when, on a girls' night out before the ceremony, she and Charlie share a drunken kiss that sets Gray's body tingling. Gray Matters juggles a lot of emotional issues; the sibling interconnectedness problem doesn't flow smoothly into the coming-out story of the movie's second half. But sprinkled throughout are charming scenes and wonderfully deft moments that make the story's clumsy missteps all the more baffling. There's no question that Graham is a star who just can't seem to find the right vehicle; Gray Matters won't be her breakthrough, but it's further evidence of her significant appeal. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and light, it's not for cynics December 16, 2007
This movie was fun, and refreshing because it was not an upchucking of dismal lesbian social commentary or the ' happily ever after isn't part of the lesbian culture' message being sold by cynical women directors seeking like and kind in their audiences.

Instead, it's refreshingly light but only just as believable as any hetero mainstream romantic comedy and thus it doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is. The lesbians are no more realistic than Julia Roberts was as a hooker in Pretty Woman, meaning you'll believe them only if you want to believe them.

Understanding what a romantic comedy is, we dove in with very little reservation and popcorned our way through to an ending that came after some surprising lifestyle insights in a "I wish my family had said that" kind of speech.

After watching this movie the first time, we showed it to a number of our straight friends and they enjoyed it too. There is a message in that. Drop the 'our lot in life' attitude and this movie is truly a romp. Bottom line? It delivers if you let it. If we had more lesbian romantic comedies, I think I'd have rated this one a three. But absence makes the heart... so I gave it a four.

Side note: The retro dance numbers (especially Heather Graham's) were impressive. The appearance of the actress who plays Helena Peabody in the L Word was a treat. While this movie will hold less appeal to women who growl at the color pink, it's also a decent date movie for our community.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, funny Lesbian romantic comedy May 24, 2010
I watch how I spend my 'pink' dollar, but felt the DVD purchase of this was a worthwhile investment. I can definitely watch it over again and still be entertained. I feel I must add I do also enjoy movies from the 1940s and grew up watching the wonderful musicals from the period. Whoever did the dancing for the stars in this movie were very good and certainly added to its appeal. The story is fine, it really is just a romantic comedy (chick flick) with a lesbian twist. If you are interested in GLBT movies and don't expect the next great lesbian classic here, you should be entertained.

I have not been aware of Heather Graham in movies prior to this, however I was impressed. I do like Tom Cavanagh and Alan Cumming although I would not be surprised if some of the latter's role was cut from this film (if not, it should have been expanded). Bridget Moynahan was like Sandra Bullock in many ways, it really made me look twice. Was this deliberate? I will be interested in how her career develops. Rachel Shelley did not have to do much, however I would loved to have seen her character be feistier with the advertising execs. The elevator scene with Gray and Sam included some wonderful dialogue. I did love the 'gay puberty' line. Sissy Spacek as Sydney was interesting.

Overall the movie is a fun watch for anyone who enjoys romantic comedies regardless of their sexuality. The ending might not be to everyone's liking, but I enjoyed the Marlo Thomas (That Girl) touch. What has the writer/director been doing since this? More to come from her I hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gray Matters is Great! June 27, 2007
Great is all I can say. I have been so bored with every romantic comedy that has come out in the past five years. Finally a movie with heart, soul and originality. The cast is superb, the writing is fantastic and it's a great postcard of New York City. I laughed and I even shed a tear or two! This should have been the comedy of the year. I highly reccomend it. Molly Shannon is also hilarious--some of her funniest acting yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Adorable June 2, 2009
I didn't know what to expect at first because the reviews for this film were all over the place but let me just say this film is awesome. There are so many things about it that make it exceptional and a must see. It's hilarious, the characters are charming and enthralling and the way they handled the subject of coming out was in my opinion great. Add to that a phenomenal sibling relationship and you can easily see why this film is a winner. What's not to love about all that?

3.0 out of 5 stars Adorable movie October 13, 2010
Yes, it was not the best movie in the world in terms of it's storytelling. But for what it's worth Heather Graham sold her part enough to have me I fell in love with her character. I watch it every now and then when I need a pick me up from a bad day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! April 7, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great, fun movie that is a romantic comedy in the genre of those 1940's gems some of us are old enough to remember.

True to life? Not much. But it is just light hearted and fun with some cute dance routines. The actors are all good in their roles and sure it would have been nice to have Gray experience a little more romance for us all to ogle, but it was sweet and unreal and smile worthy.

Nothing earth shattering, nothing overly dramatic, just a good fun time.

Enjoy it. I did and I do. Bought it and have fun watching it anytime I want something just fun.
