At its simplest level, this is a sweet, if forgettable trifle starring two healthy, bright-eyed young lovers who look great on each other's arm.

The Other End of the Line isn't always convincing on the romance front. As a comedy about culture clash, however, The Other End of the Line works nicely.

A charming old-fashioned romantic comedy transposed to today's global dating world.

This example of the cross-cultural romance makes the genre seem hopelessly exhausted.

...contrivances to the point of absurdity...

One Guy's Opinion

Superior to a lot of the bigger-budgeted, starrier-cast romantic comedies that come out of Hollywood...but too lightweight and rough around the edges to amount to anything more than a harmless time-waster.

Screen International

The film settles into a pattern of predictable romance interspersed, thanks to the antics of Priya's relations, with broad family farce.

The Other End of the Line ends up being a five-minute ad for buyer's insurance instead of an interminable interracial, international, intercultural romantic comedy.

The movie is like a glass of Sprite that has been left on the counter too long: transparent, sweet and flat.

By the time the filmmakers have set up all the story lines that will blend for a very long third act, the predictability factor has become all but unbearable.

A feather-light romantic comedy that's laborious when it ought to be effervescent; The Other End of the Line is the latest exchange in an awkward conversation between two film industries.

... a buffet of romantic comedy comfort food: the good old American standbys complemented by bland international dishes.

It's not fair to ask that a romantic comedy be entirely realistic — but some level of plausibility would make the jokes go down easier, as would a touch of delicacy in the writing.

At a time when our global standing is sinking like a stone, it's comforting to know that, at least on the big screen, we can still land the babes no matter how obnoxious we are.
