The movie's light, airy tone comes to a screeching halt in certain scenes that are excessively sentimental, melodramatic and preachy.

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

Drawing on their sitcom chops, Graham and Cavanagh cover for their cloth-eared dialogue with trumped-up camaraderie, pushing and pulling at each other like toddlers in playgroup.

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.

This "Gray" could have used more color.

Never have I ever wanted to climb into the screen and kill every single character as much as I did with this movie.

This movie is dopey.

Heather Graham's nonstop perky chattering is more annoying than cute in [this] uneven, unrealistic romantic comedy about a rather bizarre love triangle.

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.

Forgettable coming-out comedy for older teens.

Sitcommy, forced and forgettable.

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.

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

Gray's matters are pretty mundane, to tell you the truth

Heather Graham seems resigned to mugging and shrugging out the remainder of her thirties through a series of undercooked romantic comedies.

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.

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.

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

Gray Matters could be recommended to gay women whose erotic fantasies are located in the stuffed French poodle department of FAO Schwarz.

The movie really depends on Heather Graham, and she just doesn't deliver. There's always been a sort of mannequin quality to her performances, as if she had been posed just seconds before the cameras rolled.
| Original Score: 2/4
