Chris ‘the new Captain Kirk' Pine boldly goes into this unusual romantic comedy as a virginal blind guy whose brother (American Pie's Eddie Kaye Thomas) is determined to see him pop his cherry. Switching between slapstick, seriousness and Jane Seymour as a psychologist who can't keep her clothes on, this is... Small wonder this hard-to-swallow cocktail of bawdy comedy, cross-cultural romance and issue-of-the-week melodrama was left on the shelf for three years.
The good news is that he meets the girl of his dreams, just as he's about to undergo a procedure that could restore his sight. The marketing people can't have had a clue what to do with it.
BLIND DATING is a hilarious comedy about Danny (Chris Pine), an intelligent, confident, handsome young man who also happens to be blind.
Not that he's letting that hold him back - for the most part, Danny refuses to let his visual impairment get in the way of anything.
It can probably thank its release to leading man Chris Pine's Star Trek success, though whether he'll be thanking it for anything is a different matter.
