  • Summary: Outsourced is a modern day comedy of cross-cultural conflict and romance. Todd Anderson spends his days managing costumer call center in Seattle until his job, along with those of the entire office, are outsourced to India. Adding insult to injury, Todd mus travel to India to train his new replacement. As he navigates through the chaos of Bombay and an office paralyzed by constant cultural misunderstandings, Todd yearns to return to the comforts of home. But it is through his team of quirky yet likable Indian call center workers, including his friendly and motivated replacement, Puro, and the charming, opinionated Asha, that Todd realizes that he too has a lot to learn--not only about India and America, but about himself. He soon discovers that being outsourced may be the best thing that ever happened to him. (ShadowCatcher Entertainment) Expand

  1. Josh Hamilton gives a marvelously engaging performance in this fish-out-of-water comedy.
  2. 75
    Outsourced is not a great movie, and maybe couldn't be this charming if it was. It is a film bursting with affection for its characters and for India.
  3. Reviewed by: Matt Zoller Seitz
    In its modest way, Outsourced may be unique: a charming culture-clash romance that could be taught in business schools.
  4. 70
    Simply too bright and pleasant to become a huge hit, but it's a confident little genre film with near-classic charm.
  5. Reviewed by: Brian Miller
    Outsourced has all the charm and color of its made-in-India locations, yet it's crafted--well crafted--according to familiar Hollywood convention.
  6. It is not giving away much to say that everything ends as expected, just not soon enough.

    Hits the sweet spot of charming, nuanced, and not overreaching.

    A delightful film with a charming and capable cast. Good direction, appealing story and such likable characters. Funny and touching, very well done.

    This movie had the feel of a 70's made for TV movie. I was disappointed.

    Catchy theme but I found the story and acting too be flat.
