August 23, 2008
Pretty quickly it disintegrates into a mishmash of character caricatures competing for airtime in which to spit out overly quirky dialogue in predictable set-ups.

February 28, 2008
While the light and whimsical comic timing of the leads carry the film far, even they cannot blind us to Gray Matters' many shortcomings.

December 3, 2007
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.
November 1, 2007
Forgettable coming-out comedy for older teens.

July 20, 2007 amiable misfire.

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.

Despite being bogged down by several distracting, extended dance numbers, this zany farce has just enough momentum and surprises along the way to hold one's interest for the duration. But it'll help immeasurably if you're a devotee of daytime soap operas.

Gray's matters are pretty mundane, to tell you the truth
| Original Score: 2/5
March 27, 2007
Decked out in its fondness for old Hollywood films and American songbook standards, Gray Matters borrows the wallpaper from a Nancy Meyers movie to decorate its empty room.

March 17, 2007
Gray Matters feels dated: Gray's self-identity confusion is less "adorable" than annoying, and both she and Charlie appear exceptionally clueless about what's going on.
March 13, 2007
Much too eager to please rather than dealing with the messier issues around sexual identity.

I can't recommend it for gay audiences, the presumed target demographic, because they are likely to find it innocuous at best and downright insulting at worst.

March 9, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 9, 2007
First-time director Sue Kramer allows [Graham] to mug her way through every scene. You find yourself constantly wanting to cry out: 'Heather, please, a little less!'
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 9, 2007
All the characters feel superficial, a sensation heightened by a roster of too-cute secondary characters.
March 9, 2007
[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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 9, 2007
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.

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.

March 9, 2007
This movie falls into the gray area between good and just okay.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 9, 2007
Kramer has fashioned her cinematic debut with sitcom-like familiarity, too much of the film playing like randomly frenzied vignettes each of them ramming one into the other with all the subtlety of a brick thrown through a plate glass window.
