  1. While Kramer's well-conceived screenplay features much amusing dialogue, there's a forced quality to the proceedings that makes the comic premise seem more artificial than it needs to be.
  2. This exhausting romance feels more like a long-lost episode of "Three's Company" in which Jack Tripper decides he is actually gay.
  3. Compared to Gray Matters, even a Nora Ephron bonbon has the weight of urban neo-realism.
  4. 40
    Kramer shows zero feeling for the nuances of a midlife sexual awakening.
  5. 38
    For all of 10 minutes, Gray Matters looks like it might have accomplished the impossible: uncovering a romantic-comedy scenario audiences haven't seen a million times before.
  6. Graham was good in films such as "Boogie Nights" and "Bowfinger" where her apparent innocence was a smoke screen for her lustful connivance. To be effective in the movies, she needs something to counteract her wholesomeness.
  7. 10
    Coming from the strangely vacuous Graham, in a Manhattan this preposterous, the staid social message is as ludicrous as its surroundings.

    I originally watched to movie for Rachel Shelley but I found it very charming. Unlike a lot of movies that are coming out this one I originally watched to movie for Rachel Shelley but I found it very charming. Unlike a lot of movies that are coming out this one didn't take it self to seriously (thats a good thing). The acting by all of its principles was very engaging. The Writing and Directing was strong as well... fun little movie. Collapse

    Film is a sensitive and believable portrayal of a difficult subject. Film shows the need of acceptance of one's persuasion regardless Film is a sensitive and believable portrayal of a difficult subject. Film shows the need of acceptance of one's persuasion regardless how it's viewed by society. Cudos for a first time director and a well written and sensitive script. Expand
