I watched Outsourced (2006) last night. It was actually pretty good. Not as good as Slumdog Millionaire (2008), but it was quite entertaining. [I guess you can’t really compare because the two movies belong in different genres. They’re both set in India, though. LOL.]

Brian had no interest in watching it at all, so I ended up watching it by myself. I think I found it interesting because I could relate, having worked in call centers for 15 years. It’s one of those funny movies that’s not stupid-funny or hilarious-funny. It actually makes you think. LOL. Maybe it’s just a funny-to-me kind of film.

Whatever the case, I appreciated learning a bit about the culture of India and how important it is to consider cultural differences when communicating and building relationships. I also liked its take on globalization and outsourcing. Outsourced is pretty good. Definitely worth checking out.
