July 26, 2005
A mildly amusing gay comedy, with the only novel point of Cary Grant serving as a spiritual mentor; the rest is formula.

January 29, 2005
...more self-congratulatory than genuinely edgy, and the best reason to see it is MacLachlan's tidy impersonation.

[It's] a blend of trite plot points and obnoxious characters, held together by the notion that you should be watching something else instead.

Rashid struggles with tone and pacing ... but his characters are so vivid and the romance so sweet that we forgive him.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 19, 2004
A cute, ineffectual film that breaks absolutely no new ground but enjoys itself as it skips down the familiar paths.

October 8, 2004
Kyle MacLachlan's robust impersonation of Cary Grant is good for a laugh, but its overuse is just one of the crimes against this joyless cross-cultural gay romance.

There are two crucial bits of miscasting, one bad, one good, both distracting.

September 10, 2004
A gay romantic comedy so coyly inoffensive that it becomes offensive in its inoffensiveness.

An uncomfortable jumble of Harvey, Bend It Like Beckham and The Birdcage.

Much of the problem with Touch of Pink rests with Mistry, whose nice guy appeal registers even less than it did in his previous starring vehicles, The Guru and The Mystic Masseur.

September 2, 2004
While MacLachlan captures Grant's regal confidence, his overenunciation and hammy gestures lean more into caricature than imitation.

August 13, 2004
MacLachlan's strong jaw line and his valiant attempt to act so very Cary aren't enough to save this film.
August 13, 2004
As much as it aspires to mimic the charm of old Cary Grant pictures, Touch of Pink is hardly worthy of comparison to even the least of Grant's films.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 13, 2004
The movie pretty much collapses upon the fulcrum of Kyle MacLachlan's Cary Grant.
August 12, 2004
A harmless, lightweight romantic comedy that does everything that you expect it to.

August 12, 2004
[A] gay dramedy that recycles a tired coming-out-of-the-closet plot and dabbles in Eastern-Western culture clash.

August 12, 2004
How can [Rashid's] admittedly playful anti-Hollywood fantasy theme stick, when the movie itself is so saturated in big-studio values, fantasies and hokum and shot in a lower-budget approximation of the 1960s Hollywood style?

Hysterically pitched and woefully lacking in scripted wit.
