Synopsis from DVD Cover:
In this hilarious romantic comedy, Gray (Heather Graham) helps her brother (Tom Cavanaugh) find the love of his life. But the night before her brother's wedding, Gray's world is turned upside-down when she discovers that she has feelings for his fiancÚ (Bridget Moynahan)! With the help of a sarcastic co-worker (Molly Shannon), a sympathetic cab driver (Alan Cumming), and her therapist (Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek), Gray is forced to figure out who she really is.

Quick Review:
First let me say that this is not my type of movie. Whenever I hear "romantic comedy," I run for the hills, but something about Gray Matters that intrigued me. Maybe it was the long, sloppy lesbian kiss between super hotties Heather Graham (Boogie Nights) and Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot), or maybe... No, that was it.

The movie starts out with a dance between Graham's character, Gray and her brother Sam (Tom Cavanagh). This dancing and their overall relationship has everyone wondering if they are an actual couple, which finally forces the siblings to find themselves relationships with the opposite sex other than themselves. Gray quickly spots the beautiful Charlie (Moynahan) in the park, and forces Sam to get to know her. After a night of fun, Sam comes back with some great news; he and Charlie are getting married. As a result, Gray doesn't know what to feel; on one hand she should be happy for her brother, and on the other, she will be left completely alone.

At this point, you are probably very confused who Sam, Charlie and Gray are, since the names are extremely ambiguous and could belong to a person of either sex. That's the point. During the threesome's trip to Vegas to get married, Gray finds out something life changing; she's gay and in love with her brother's fiancee. This is where the story goes downhill.

What starts out as a funny and quirky comedy, quickly turns to a ridiculous quest to find oneself. And if it wasn't for the smaller roles of such great actors as Molly Shannon, Alan Cumming and Sissy Spacek, I think I would have just fallen asleep.

The extras are very limited and outside of the trailers for other movies, the only bonus material was a behind-the-scenes featurette. It lasts about three minutes and the only thing I got out of it, is that Gray's character is loosely based on director Sue Kramer's lesbian sister.

In Conclusion:
For the first thirty minutes, I was extremely impressed with how much great quirky material was in this film. Unfortunately, the next hour erased all that, forcing me to sit through the rest of it patiently. I'm sure there will be lots of people that will absolutely love this movie, but I just can't imagine anyone enjoying Cavanagh's usual one dimensional performance.
