Movie Review: Touch of Pink
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2004, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Rated R for sexual content and brief language; 92 minutes; opening today at the Broadway Centre Cinemas.

Kyle MacLachlan's robust impersonation of Cary Grant is good for a laugh, but its overuse is just one of the crimes against this joyless cross-cultural gay romance. Cary serves as imaginary friend to Alim (Jimi Mistry), an Ismaili-Canadian in London who can't tell his traditional mom, Nuru (Suleka Mathew), about his Brit boyfriend Giles (Kristen Holden-Ried). Mistry, a gifted comic seen in "Ella Enchanted," is saddled with such a sad-sack character that the movie only feels alive when he's gone - as when Giles takes Nuru sight-seeing around London. Writer-director Ian Iqbal Rashid invokes old-movie nostalgia, but it's unlikely anyone will be pining to relive this magic-free movie.
