4.0 out of 5 stars "I Can't Feel Anything" ~ Pain Can Be More Than A Feeling
Okay, I admit it, 'Touched' released in '05 plays like a Hallmark classic even though it isn't. It is unquestionably a chick flick so be forwarned. Just remember, fair is fair, guys have to give in once in a while and watch something our wives or girlfriends want to see. Fortunately it does star the very attractive Jenna Elfman and I can't think of any male who doesn't...

I enjoyed this movie and thought Jenna Elfman did a wonderful job. The actor who played Scott was absolutely gorgeous and I would have liked to have see more of him in the movie actually. This movie was very slow and dark (dark lighting)and I was waiting for it to brighten up once things got better but the scenes continued to be darkish. Perhaps because the story was a...

4.0 out of 5 stars "I Can't Feel Anything" ~ Pain Can Be More Than A Feeling, July 23, 2006
This review is from: Touched (DVD)
Okay, I admit it, 'Touched' released in '05 plays like a Hallmark classic even though it isn't. It is unquestionably a chick flick so be forwarned. Just remember, fair is fair, guys have to give in once in a while and watch something our wives or girlfriends want to see. Fortunately it does star the very attractive Jenna Elfman and I can't think of any male who doesn't like her.

Plot: Recently separated Father and son are hit by an oncoming car. The son dies and the Father (Randall Batinkoff) falls into a coma for the next two years. Nurse Angela Martin (Jenna Elfman) takes care of him during that time until he unexpectedly awakens. OK, we all know the basic storyline from here on, don't we?

Anyway good production values, attractive cast and just a good film all around. Make your wife or girlfriend happy and give it a shot, the women will absolutely adore Randall Batinkoff and the rest of us can appreciate Jenna. So be tough, suck it up and be a man. If you run into any problems during the viewing follow these simple instructions: One, Two, Three, Breathe - One, Two, Three, Breathe - One, Two...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet...., September 4, 2006
This review is from: Touched (DVD)
Sure, there's some Hollywood-ness to this movie. The whole waking-up-from-a-coma topic is improbable at best, but it's also of a theme that all of us hope and dream for, and presented quite effectively by a very attractive cast. Nice chemistry between Elfman and Batinkoff, too.

My boyfriend was in a horrendous accident and in a coma for 3 days before awakening, not nearly so dramatically as portrayed in this movie, but just as emotionally, so I have a certain affinity for what these characters go through.

It's a lovely and well meaning little movie with flawed and imperfect characters and a message of love and hope.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked this movie but..., September 30, 2006
This review is from: Touched (DVD)
I enjoyed this movie and thought Jenna Elfman did a wonderful job. The actor who played Scott was absolutely gorgeous and I would have liked to have see more of him in the movie actually. This movie was very slow and dark (dark lighting)and I was waiting for it to brighten up once things got better but the scenes continued to be darkish. Perhaps because the story was a bit depressed and sad? I was anxious for a first kiss or first love scene or an "I love you" because the slowness of the movie really gives you a chance to see the characters falling in love with eachother. I was a bit dissapointed with what we ended up with. Overall I liked this movie but I think it could have had a few changes to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jenna Elfman is a cutie, November 12, 2006
This review is from: Touched (DVD)
My wife rented this movie tonight, and from the cover I had second thoughts. But then, I have had my pick of bad movies from time to time. I wouldn't say it was a bad movie, but I agree with the other reviewers that it was slow, sad and very dark (people just refused to turn on the light on this movie).

I've always found Jenna Elfman to be a cutie, so it was well worth the 90 minutes. Mr Batinkoff is good looking and the acting was very good in my opinion. The music was also very good. Being a father of a three year old boy, who I love unconditionally, I could easily relate as to how a father would feel having lost his son.

For a slow night, I think this movie is worth the rental. If anyone is to blame, it could be the director, for not advancing the plot faster and by choosing a "low light" ambiance to the movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly good enough for Jenna's talents!, October 8, 2006
By 
This review is from: Touched (DVD)
This is a truly bad movie, and only rates two stars because Jenna Elfman is, admittedly, adorable. The characters are one-dimensional, the medical events completely implausible, and the action painfully slow. I hope I am not disclosing too much by stating that those who remember "ET" will find themselves wondering if there are grounds for a lawsuit......

The premise of the movie is not a bad one, nor are the actors, and with better writing and editing, it could have been half decent. I feel sorry for the actors. As they watched the final outcome, they must have cringed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocked At How Much I Enjoyed This Film, January 9, 2007

This review is from: Touched (DVD)
I am a John Wayne fan who actually enjoys 'chick flicks' but I like some humor...This film is very dark and slow moving but I found it tremendously inspirational and spiritual..It shows the power to be found in unselfish love..and has a very powerful ending...I just sat in silence for half an hour after it was over, just thinking about life, death, love, etc..and all of the implications..One must be in the right mood to enjoy it was fortunately I was...I have always loved Jenna Elfman's comedy, but this lady has real range...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but very unusual, June 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Touched (Amazon Instant Video)
Watched this movie as a Jenna fan. Interesting story - a strong mixture of sadness and growing love between two people. What I found amazing was the number of scenes with minimal dialog that none the less conveyed an element of the plot. Also amazing was how Angela (Jenna) was not a basket case with all that she was dealing with. Makes a good case for keeping the faith - there is always hope.

A friend had highly recommended the movie so I decided to purchase it. I was completely disappointed. It just droned on and on and didn't seem to know when to stop.
