Hard to recommend to a general audience
18 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film plays out like an acting exercise by two very capable, well-established actors. What holds the simple plot together, along with the series of vignettes showcasing the actors' skills, are two things: the personal ads introducing each segment, and the narration by the characters' deceased daughter.

Blind Date is probably more valuable as a teaching tool in a professional acting class than it would be as a night at the cinema for the general public.

Excerpts from Blind Date will doubtless appear in retrospectives of Clarkson's and Tucci's acting careers, as illustrating examples of their work. That Tucci also directed likely strengthens the focus of the film in terms of his and his co-star's portrayals.
