What to know

critics consensus

Nicely cast but clumsily directed, Blind Dating smothers its leads' chemistry in a wildly uneven and mostly unmemorable romantic comedy with far too little of either. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Danny (Chris Pine) is a blind man who does not let his impairment get in the way of living his life to the fullest, except when it comes to love. Danny's brother (Eddie Kaye Thomas) sets him up on a series of blind dates, but all of them go disastrously wrong. Just when Danny is about to give up, he meets Leeza (Anjali Jay), a nurse who works for Danny's doctor. There is just one catch: Leeza, who is from India, is promised to another man.

  • 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.

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

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

  • The standard of acting and directing is at a very low ebb.

    September 18, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It's not preachy or weepy. Instead, it's a lively yet meaningful romantic comedy that doesn't lose sight of its central mission: to entertain.

Audience Reviews for Blind Dating

    I really wish I could say this wasn't cheesy or lame, but it really is for the most part. The only redeeming quality is Chris Pine's really great performance. No one must have told him how dumb and ridiculous it was going to be because his character is really well developed and realistic. Now for a straight-to-video movie it's not the worst, but it just has all those stereotypical quirky moments that have long since been considered cute or even amusing.

    If it weren't for Chris Pine's natural charm, this movie probably wouldn't have been half as good. I'm not usually a fan of romantic comedies, but I found that I really liked this one, for its main character as well as those around him. I really sympathized with Danny's desire to be independant and find love, and his blindness wasn't so much a physical handicap for him as it was a social handicap that influenced other people's treatment of him. There is also a parallel storyline of Danny volunteering to undergo experimental surgery that could potentiall grant him limited vision, but it takes a backseat to the romance story. The humour in this one is genuinely funny without being mean-spirited, and he ending, while unorthodox is both happy and satusfying.

    Wholly routine rom-com with no chemistry, laughs, originality or heart.
