Don't let the faux-hand-lettering fool you, Juno-naysayers: Outsourced isn't the "quirky" indie drama its cover implies. Instead, it's a formulaic fish-out-water tale. (If you're going to pooh-pooh something, pooh-pooh fairly.) Here, our uncomfortable fish is Todd (Josh Hamilton), an American kitsch salesman sent to train a call-centre full of lower-cost labourers in India, after his company moves its order-centre overseas. As expected, Todd soon learns some sage cultural/life lessons. Still, Outsourced is relatively charming---and its playful depiction of India's "celebration of colour" will make you want to throw some paint.
