Touch of Pink Reviews

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?
August 8, 2004
Hysterically pitched and woefully lacking in scripted wit.
August 6, 2004
Pleasant but predictable comedy.
August 6, 2004
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
It provides plenty of laughs to make it enjoyable and enough substance to make it worth your time.
August 5, 2004
Contrived and stodgy, Touch of Pink starts with an expectation- loweringly awful idea and then executes it poorly.
August 5, 2004
Could have made more of its quirks, but for all its sincerity, it's just another banal coming-out movie.
August 5, 2004
Despite being a tad too familiar and tired in premise, film contains some charming performances and quirky script.
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.
August 3, 2004
Significantly smarter than any Tom Hanks pabulum we're force-fed every couple of years.
July 31, 2004
[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
July 31, 2004
Oh, goodie, another "my old-country ethnic family doesn't understand me" comedy.
July 30, 2004
Ian Iqbal Rashid's movie, flawed as it is, works precisely because of its fantasy elements.
July 30, 2004
It's all wearisome and pathetic.
July 23, 2004
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.
July 23, 2004
So timid and sitcom-y that it could more accurately be colored blush.
July 22, 2004
A heavy, contrived bit of whimsy that doesn't even match its fluffily amusing Ross Hunter models...touches neither the heart nor the funnybone.
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.
July 18, 2004
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.
July 16, 2004
You may give up on Ian Iqbal Rashid's feature debut long before things get interesting, courtesy of a distracting conceit that shatters whatever spell the hackneyed premise might cast.
