Movie Summary

Director:
John Jeffcoat
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13
Outsourced is a comedy film directed by John Jeffcoat that centers on Todd Anderson (Josh Hamilton) as he experiences one of the strange business practices of outsourcing. When his entire department is outsourced, he is sent along with the responsibilities to India in order to teach the new employees how to handle the American culture and, essentially, his job. It is culture shock on a massive level as he comes to terms with some of the interesting differences between American and Indian culture, such as the use of an auto rickshaw instead of a taxi or the knockoff MacDonells. Slowly though, he comes to enjoy being in India, especially as he learns about their celebration of colors, leaving food to the poor, and slowly enjoying working with the dedicated and loving workers there, including the outspoken and headstrong Asha (Ayesha Dharker) and motivated Puro (Asif Basra). Todd comes to terms that sometimes it is not about the numbers or the money in life, except in how you live it.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    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.

    Variety Eddie Cockrell

    This unaffected charmer treats a hot-button contempo issue with old-fashioned grace and benevolent wit, rendering it a sure-fire word-of-mouth crowd-pleaser.

    San Francisco Chronicle Ruthe Stein

    The ending is predictable to anybody who's followed the trajectory of outsourcing. Outsourced humanizes those affected by it - even if the story sounds familiar.
