  • Summary: Beautiful and radiant, Priya Sethi indulges her infatuation with American culture by working at the Citi One Bank Card call center in Bangalore, India. Speaking in perfectly unaccented English, she tells her customers her name is Jennifer David and a native of San Francisco. Her conservative father Rajeev is unhappy that she is so eager to forsake her own culture for another, but will be pleased when she goes through with her arranged marriage to the dull Vikram. Priya, posing as Jennifer David, happens to call the handsome and charming Granger Woodruff to help him with the fraudulent charges on his credit card. Priya and Granger have an instant connection over the phone. Unable to suppress the intrigue their easy chemistry offers, Priya agrees to meet Granger in San Francisco. She gets on a plane and crosses not only an ocean, but entire cultures as well. (MGM) Expand

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

    Now, 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.

    Watching Granger and Priya chase each other around a hotel like squirrels in a park, you wonder what these two see in each other.
  7. Overlong, overplotted, and pocked with improbabilities.
