It’s easy to see why they picked him as Captain Kirk. They’re fine in such a toothlessly light indie rom-com.

His brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas), a driver, takes extra money from hookers so they can have private sex in the back of his limousine.

For the rest of us, there are better, stronger movies about love and/or the blind. (He has worn them his entire life.) He enters the hospital for the first time and slips on a kid’s toy car. It makes for a wacky moment for the trailer, but seems out of place in the actual sluggish film.
At a college class held in an auditorium, Danny feels his way down some steps.
Danny and Leeza go for a sweet little picnic at a baseball field, backed by a pleasant, twinkly acoustic soundtrack.
They keep going on these dates and enjoying each other’s company, but when they kiss it’s too much for Leeza and she backs off.
