Love has no borders and therein lies the premise of the hilarious, new Iranian-American romantic comedy "Shirin in Love." Nazanin Boniadi plays Shirin, an absent-minded, young Iranian-American living in "Tehrangeles" (the large Iranian community in Los Angeles) with her overbearing mother and empathetic father. Despite being engaged for years to a successful Iranian plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Shirin finds herself breaking loyalty and tradition when she falls in love with a mysterious

March 13, 2014:Critics Consensus: Need for Speed is Busted
This week at the movies, we've got fast cars (Need For Speed, starring Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots)...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
There's a glint of a clever idea here, but writer-director Ramin Niami's reliance on tired rom-com tropes only serve to drag down the film, which plays out like a Harlequin romance.
Although Boniadi makes Shirin nearly as likable as she's supposed to be, writer- director Ramin Niami's movie is crudely contrived and sloppily edited.
Apart from its Iranian-American milieu, this innocuous romantic comedy is strictly formulaic.
The only possible reaction to an amateurish romance like "Shirin in Love" is: Do the filmmakers think we're all idiots?
There's very little to distinguish this from every other characterless rom-com with a demographically marketable hook.
From the choppy pacing to the grating soundtrack to the flat visual style, Shirin in Love fails on almost every level.
"Shirin in Love" blends tangy romantic comedy and tart social satire into a cinematic cocktail that's pleasingly off-beat, warm-spirited and knowing.
An empty shell of a movie that goes nowhere, invokes no warm feelings, and accomplishes nothing.
Shirin in Love, like its protagonist, looks ditzy at first but quickly becomes a thinking woman's romantic comedy, making a lie of recent media claims that the genre is defunct.
Love almost seem ashamed of its heritage, electing shed its personality to make a movie we've all seen a hundred times before.
