Great little film with some very funny moments
13 March 2019 | by ledgSee all my reviews

When I was living in Toronto in the late 70's I went to school across the street from the local Canadian National Institute for the Blind and there was a young fellow working the desk there that I interacted with over a couple of years. When I first saw Aykroyd's performance in Love at First Sight I was shocked. It was a uncanny impression of the fellow I knew from CNIB. I've always wondered whether this is where he got his inspiration. It is a very nuanced performance. What a great talent Dan Aykroyd is.

And the film has a lot of very funny moments. Watch out for the first time he takes her home. Genius.
