ambles along to no great effect but has a few chuckles along the way. No harm, no foul.

Blind Dating also manages to be an incredibly muddled 95 minutes in which emotions are replaced by aggressive music cues to force the viewer to care for characters that are paper thin at best.

While Pine is superb in the lead role, almost everything else fails to convince in this vastly uneven, unfunny and only sporadically dramatic enterprise.

Pleasant but forgettable, it's destined to end up as little more than a minor footnote on Pine's megastar CV.

I wouldn't even describe what Dating becomes as ambitious. It's just sloppy, and corrupts the comfortable level of mediocrity it made peace with early on.

Small wonder this hard-to-swallow cocktail of bawdy comedy, cross-cultural romance and issue-of-the-week melodrama was left on the shelf for three years. The marketing people can't have had a clue what to do with it.

The chemistry between Leeza and Danny is the only saving grace of this messy film. It's almost as if the writers couldn't stand to just watch them sweetly fall in love.

The whole thing ends with a jolly multicultural dance montage so gruesome that temporary blindness would be a blessed relief.

It's Pine that keeps the whole thing afloat, and he manages, astonishingly, to make even the clunkiest, cheesiest lines work, almost transforming the film's chocolate-box sentiments into something honest.

An inoffensively bland piece of rom-com fluff.

A bad idea poorly executed...unfortunately, Blind Dating doesn't deserve to be seen.

There's actually a sweet little romantic comedy at the core of Blind Dating, fighting its way to get out of the cruder, crasser outer shell.

Christopher Theo's script aims for American Pie raunch, which doesn't work in a watered-down PG-13 form.

This is harmless, breezy fluff.

An uneven mixture of crude high jinks and sweet romance, this just about makes the grade thanks to its breezy geniality and Pine's charismatic performance as Danny.
