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

Rashid struggles with tone and pacing ... but his characters are so vivid and the romance so sweet that we forgive him.

It provides plenty of laughs to make it enjoyable and enough substance to make it worth your time.

Despite being a tad too familiar and tired in premise, film contains some charming performances and quirky script.

Significantly smarter than any Tom Hanks pabulum we're force-fed every couple of years.

[has the] light touch that characterized those fluffy romances that Hollywood churned out with wild abandon during its Golden Age, and then gives it some bite

Ian Iqbal Rashid's movie, flawed as it is, works precisely because of its fantasy elements.

A true romantic comedy, closely following the formula of the Cary Grant/Rock Hudson/Doris Day movies of the late '50s and early '60s, Touch Of Pink relies more on witty dialogue and an underlying current of irony than on plot twists.

A clever and big- hearted gay screwball comedy.

Touch Of Pink is more of a save than a genuinely good movie. I'm recommending it because it turns out so much better than its clumsy start would lead anyone to expect.

It takes a while for him to find the right pace and rhythm, but the overall result is diverting yet provocative, and Rashid is as strong a director of actors as he is a writer capable of creating complex, multifaceted characters.

Touch of Pink depicts the romantic challenges of a gay photographer in London who is carrying on a fantasy life with the spirit of Cary Grant.

For all the predictable devices ... as well as a plot that goes right, left, and idles on the train tracks, there's really enough going on here to sustain the film, even without Cary Grant. So he's a bonus, and a delightful one.

With closeted gay Muslim Canadian men so woefully underrepresented in romantic comedies, I'm inclined to swallow the marshmallow samosa that is Touch of Pink with a polite smile of international cooperation.

Rashid infuses Touch of Pink with the spirit and energy of the classic romantic comedies that it evokes while painting a portrait of a richly characterized mother and son who unwittingly share a mutual affection for cinema.
