Americanizing Shelley Reviews

Chuck Wilson

Americanizing Shelley isn't original, or the least bit believable, but it's so lovingly made that one's usual resistance to such clichés falls away.

A Punjabi Pygmalion, director Lorraine Senna's Americanizing Shelley is a sweet-natured, often charming twist on the assimilation comedy.

With its tired reworking of Pygmalion and stiff, amateurish staging, Americanizing Shelley is clearly all about one thing: Gujral. She's cute, but by the end of this ego trip, she's more insufferable than adorable.
