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.

August 29, 2008
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.

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.

Outsourced has a gentle touch with the obvious fish-out-of-water touchstones.

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

The problem with making a movie on topical subjects is that by the time of its release, it can seem awfully stale.

Josh Hamilton gives a marvelously engaging performance in this fish-out-of-water comedy.

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.

I guess Outsourced is simply too bright and pleasant to become a huge hit, but it's a confident little genre film with near-classic charm.
September 27, 2007
It's a celebration of cultural diversity and an affirmation that, despite differences in race, religion, and societal norms, people are essentially the same, with a lack of understanding being a key block to better relations.

This unaffected charmer treats a hot-button contempo issue with old-fashioned grace and benevolent wit.
