Movie Reviews

Great fun

"refreshing and funny ! don't worry about nit-picking the details - it's meant as a light hearted romp - and should be enjoyed as such. Kyle McLaughlin was wonderful as 'Cary Grant'. He's grown up into a far more handsome man than you might expect from his 'Dune' beginnings."

"Within the glut of gay "coming out comedies" I've purchased in the past few years, I've noticed that they all seem to have similar plots. They usually present a young gay couple, consisting of one partner who is out and comfortable with his family, job and friends, contrasted by a partner who is not out to any of these people. Almost always, the happy couple is suddenly confronted by the visit of a parent or other relative (usually from another country or culture) from whom they must conceal the truth of their relationship, or come out once and for all. While many of these films mean well (especially when other cultures are involved), the result is often trite, offensive or dated. I was prepared for Touch of Pink to be all of these things, and half-wondered to myself as I purchased it why I bothered.

I was in for a pleasant surprise. The characters were real, engaging and likable. The two actors who played the couple were not drop-dead gorgeous hunks, just pleasant looking enough to have the average gay viewer identify with them. The gimmick of having Cary Grant as the imaginary friend of the main character worked better than I expected it to. All too often imitations of celebrities come off as just that - imitations, and pale ones to boot. Kyle MacLachlan has Cary Grant's vocal mannerisms down pat, without being overly exaggerated or silly. Alim's mother is pretty, bitchy and quite a lot of fun, and her character has most of the really funny lines in the picture, which are many. And I was also impressed not only by the production values and acting, which were first rate, but by the first class treatment given to the DVD release. All too often, DVD's of films with gay subject matter come at very high prices with no extras whatsoever. This disc offered subtitles in several languages (including English for the hearing impaired) a trailer and a short documentary on the making of the film. These are extras that people who purchase mainstream films take for granted, and I am always delighted when they're included in a gay title. All in all this film was surprisingly enjoyable, and I have no problem appraising it worthy of four stars.
Boring Stuff

"This movie is of Indo-Islamic mother-son relations.

Attractive to both flat mates, a young photographer of Indian descent born in Kenya, grown up in Canada and residing in London hung around between Toronto and England on partners' expense and happily convinced relatives in changing their traditional attitudes towards same gender affairs.

Unlike Sth. London-based "My Beautiful Laundrette" this UK story of happily settled in the West is so boooooooooooring despite an unbelivable number of exploring their sexuality young man's Muslim relatives depicted.
