Dan Aykroyd gives a rather sweet performance in his first starring role in Love at First Sight
22 July 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

For the past few days, I've been reviewing various movies and TV specials featuring an "SNL"er in the beginning of their careers. So now we're in 1977 with the release of Dan Aykroyd's first starring feature, an independent Canadian movie called Love at First Sight. A partly ironic title since Aykroyd plays a blind man named Roy. One day, a woman named Shirley (Mary Ann McDonald) visits the store Roy works at and tries to buy something. Something develops from there. I'll just now say that I found the whole movie sweet and whatever humor that develops comes gradually as the movie goes on. I was really nicely surprised by both the film and Aykroyd's performance in a role quite unlike what he'd become more famous for. So on that note, I highly recommend Love at First Sight.
