Gray Matters Reviews

It's so awful that it enters that weird realm in which it becomes actively annoying. The moviegoer sits there, hoping the characters will be tortured and die horrible deaths.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

The plot sputters from one unconvincing scene to the next until Kramer just gives up on telling a story and Gray Matters somehow morphs into The Complete Idiot's Guide to Coming Out of the Closet.

Gray's identity issues -- presumably the movie's main focus -- share time with too many subsidiary scenes that seem (rightly or wrongly) to have been written for as many actor-friends of the filmmakers as possible.

Everybody talks so fast that you'd swear you were hearing snappy banter. You aren't. Not really.

One of those completely disposable and clumsy attempts to make a gay romantic comedy that constantly slips on its own good intentions.

If aliens were to take this kind of behavior and dialogue as an example of normal interaction of the species, we'd all be in big, big trouble.

One Guy's Opinion

So utterly synthetic that though set in New York, it might as well be happening on another planet...despite the title, Gray doesn't matter at all.

This "Gray" could have used more color.

Some unlikely scenes but it kept me entertained enough to make it enjoyable.

Superficial comedy about the coming-out of a young woman.

Gray Matters is trying so hard to be charming and screwball (not to mention politically correct) that it trips all over itself.

Scott Tobias
AV Club

Attempts to do Woody Allen by way of Nora Ephron, but romantic comedies in that vein are only as good as their banter, and Gray Matters' banter is conspicuously sub-par.

This is a chick flick, one of the chickiest chick flicks of the decade so far.

In cheerfully embracing the sitcom's limitations, Kramer resigns her film to a sort of amiable mediocrity.

[Heather Graham] needs something to counteract her wholesomeness. In Gray Matters -- her name is Gray, get it? -- what you see is what you get. The fact that her character 'discovers' she is gay is as unbelievable as it is contrived.

The many awkward and/or inexplicable attempts at whimsy in Gray Matters are too numerous to cite.

Graham makes the coming-out dithering bearable, but not before she has jumped through hoops of contrivance.
