As if the gimmicky punnery of that title isn't enough, the movie ends with KT Tunstall's 'Suddenly I See' blaring over the end credits after the predictable happy ending.Presumably there's a deleted scene where Danny traipses around in a park after a sudden shower to the sounds of a certain Jimmy Cliff classic.Phoebe sets Rachel up with drug addict, Steve (who previously appeared in The One With The Stoned Guy as a restaurant owner offering Monica a spot) and Joey sets Ross up with a history teacher.Realizing it's his perfect match, he tells the woman that the date is off, leaving Ross to be stood up.Egged on by his laddish brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas), he goes on a series of literal blind dates, only raising the odd laugh when attempting to pass himself off as a sighted person.The tone changes drastically when he meets Leeza (Anjali Jay) and fails to realise that she’s an Indian facing an arranged marriage.But will she realise he's the one before he destroys himself with some risky eye-related operations that might allow him to look at her?The structure and premise of the story aren't too bad at all, but the execution is lousy.
Sadly, while Pine is superb in the lead role, almost everything else fails to convince in this vastly uneven, unfunny and only sporadically dramatic enterprise.
The good news is that he meets the girl of his dreams, just as he's about to undergo a procedure that could restore his sight. The marketing people can't have had a clue what to do with it.
It can probably thank its release to leading man Chris Pine's Star Trek success, though whether he'll be thanking it for anything is a different matter.
woefully shifting tone frequently severs the audience's involvement with the storyline.
