Gray Matters

Critics Consensus

Gray Matters tries emulating Hollywood screwball classics, but the rapid fire dialogue and witticisms comes off only as a contrived gimmick.

Movie Info

They finish each other's sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft--the perfect couple? Not exactly. Gray and Sam are a sister and brother, so compatible and inseparable that people actually assume they are dating. Mortified, they both agree they must branch out and start searching for love. He'll look for a guy for her, and she'll look for a gal for him. But, when Sam finds his perfect mate in Charlie, Gray's life turns inside out. A romantic comedy that sets sibling rivalry on its head, "Gray Matters" gives a whole new meaning to love... and destiny.

  • Graham carries this for a while, but Kramer spends entirely too much time weakly satirizing Graham's job at an advertising agency, where Molly Shannon's a kvetching coworker.

  • In its genre writer-director Sue Kramer's film sets a new record for bright shining peepers and dimply smirks. It's enough to kill Buster Keaton's entire family.

  • The writing isn't sharp enough for the film to work as comedy, nor are the characters real enough for the audience to connect emotionally.

  • [Heather Graham's] never looked better, despite the unflattering digital video format, which makes it all the more tragic that she's not appearing in better material.

  • There is, one has to assume, a pretty good old-fashioned screwball comedy in all this, but director-writer Sue Kramer seems to have grown up watching Rhoda so Graham, usually a capable actress, has not a word of actual dialogue, only gag lines.

    Mar 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/4
  • Nearly every scene of this movie rings hollow, mainly because we can never really believe that what we're seeing up on the screen could truly happen.

    This was just average. The cast is okay. I've seen Heather Graham be more convincing in a movie though. I did like the small appearances from Alan Cumming - he nearly steals the whole movie... not that there is much too steal. It's okay as a weekly rental.

    If you need a bit of lightheartedness, this movie is for you. Gray finds a girl for her brother, and a) falls in love with her herself, and b) figures out she is gay. Not an Oscar-winning drama, but enjoyable. At least they don't treat being gay as being a second class citizen.

    nice movie about coming out because not only does it deal with women being gay (not men for a change lol) but it show a nice view into how confused one can be if they find out they are gay... i thought this was a good and relaxed flick... for a sunday night
