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

August 5, 2004
Contrived and stodgy, Touch of Pink starts with an expectation- loweringly awful idea and then executes it poorly.

Color me unconvinced.

A cute, ineffectual film that breaks absolutely no new ground but enjoys itself as it skips down the familiar paths.

The movie pretty much collapses upon the fulcrum of Kyle MacLachlan's Cary Grant.
July 30, 2004
It's all wearisome and pathetic.

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

July 19, 2004
Middling screwball comic fantasia... a passable indie film calling card perhaps suited more for casting directors and potentially adventurous directors than general audiences.

Romantic Gay Muslim Screwball Retro Comedies should at least have the foresight to deliver on half the genre labels it establishes for itself.

I'd like to believe that the world has moved past being scandalized by otherness -- Those nutty Indians! Those outrageous gays! -- but Touch of Pink doesn't think so.

Oh, goodie, another "my old-country ethnic family doesn't understand me" comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 3, 2004
A hit-and-miss affair that has its heart in the right place but treads a razor thin line between romantic and ridiculous.
| Original Score: 2/4
July 15, 2004
The only real touch of class in the rickety little romantic comedy is Kyle MacLachlan's dead-on impersonation of Cary Grant's ghost.

There are hundreds of reasons for and possibilities in reupholstering romantic comedies with a queer eye, but the movies like Touch of Pink are too busy teaching feel-good lessons to even try.

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?

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

Exploring the relationships between the three principles is where the movie works best... Touch Of Pink could have a touch less fantasy and a touch more realism.

August 5, 2004
Could have made more of its quirks, but for all its sincerity, it's just another banal coming-out movie.

Just imagine all the screwball possibilities -- they're squandered here.
August 13, 2004
MacLachlan's strong jaw line and his valiant attempt to act so very Cary aren't enough to save this film.
