Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
Mildly diverting but slight, the screwball comedy Gray Matters changes it up, more or less creating its own genre, the curveball farce.

Some of it works, most of it doesn't. But the real problem of the movie is that it's so utterly lacking in freshness and originality. This...

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
This exhausting romance feels more like a long-lost episode of "Three's Company" in which Jack Tripper decides he is actually gay.

The only bright spots are Cavanagh's easy charm about him and Cumming's performance as Grody -- he's much more believable as a straight man...

Graham makes the coming-out dithering bearable, but not before she has jumped through hoops of contrivance.

Gray Matters

This movie was wonderfully done. Left no doors unopened and no desire unfulfilled. A Masterpiece of love and relationships. Graham, Cavanagh and Moynahan deliver amazing performances. Hat's Off to...

Worth it for the kiss.

By emcgough
I saw this movie hoping for a little girl on girl action. I was not diappointed. Heather Graham was convincing in the role of a woman slapped int he face with her own sexuality. The thing that...

Dear Lord, make it stop!

This is less a film than punishment for a poor choice at movie viewing. Heather Graham is insufferable. A random drama student in a random high school play (english speaking or not) would have been...

Lovely movie
