An indie crowd pleaser with a timely message, Outsourced is a kind of globalization lite romantic comedy, simultaneously touching on some fairly grim issues with a soft focus lens.

Sending jobs overseas, a hot-button issue for some Americans, gets gentle, good-natured treatment in Outsourced.

In the hands of a lesser director, the secondary characters, including Todd's matronly Indian landlady, might have been mere caricatures. Smart production design and camerawork enhance the sense of authenticity.

A frothy romantic comedy that makes a serious point about the arrogance of treating human beings from around the world as interchangeable economic units.

A sweet if predictable variation on the premise of the ugly American, redeemed by Hamiton's dry performance, some nice comic turns by the Indian supporting cast, and a droll script by Jeffcoat and George Wing.

Outsourced left me satisfied if not exactly charged up; this romantic, fish-out-of-water comedy is an effective piece of entertainment.

No, it's not your meet-cute Reese Witherspoon/Kate Hudson rom-com, but if you're looking for a humble movie with a lot of genuine heart, Outsourced has more than enough to go around.

Jeffcoat handles the ostensible cultural differences gingerly. The movie's approach to globalism is to play everything small and keep everybody human.

...even if we aren't pumping our fists in the air, we're rooting for the characters with an agreeable 'namaste' vibe that feels earned rather than forced upon us.

A charming film about preconceptions, culture clash and love, Outsourced gives us a fresh perspective on overseas call centres.

Mixing astute cultural observation, character-driven comedy and a little romance, John Jeffcoat's Outsourced is a delightful look at how easily jobs can be cut and sent elsewhere.

An indie charmer that may become the sleeper of Seattle.

A smart, low-key charmer.

Austin Chronicle

Its head may be in the sand, but Outsourced is a good-spirited idyll, an escape from reality, naive to a fault, and all but unconcerned with the troubles of the world but almost - almost - convincing in its innocence.

The film's deliberate, carefully paced narrative can't obscure the sense of epiphany that permeates Outsourced.

It is a film bursting with affection for its characters and for India. It never pushes things too far, never stoops to cheap plotting, is about people learning to really see one another. It has a fundamental sweetness and innocence.
