Finally, a romantic comedy concept we haven't already seen a million times before: In The Other End of the Line, a guy actually falls in love with the Indian girl in the outsourced call center after his credit card is declined because of possible fraud. That's actually the concept. And I know it's incredibly difficult to believe this movie hasn't already been made, what with the romantic feelings and longing we all feel when we end up on the phone in one of these situations. Oh, wait, those aren't the feeling we feel; it's frustration and anger -- not exactly the recipe for love and marriage. But if you put very beautiful people like Jesse Metcalf and Shriya Sayan into the mix, the love can't help but blossom. Because they can tell how beautiful the other one is just based on the phone call. But even if I forgive the ridiculous concept, I cannot forgive the filmmakers for expecting me to believe that he could ever call the call center girl directly. I have had to deal with call centers like these, and if only they would let me call the same person back, I would not have spent eight months and a great deal of rage trying to get a refund from one particular airline (coughUnitedcough), because I would have just called back the person who supposedly helped me in the first place. Although, if I could have called that same person back, we'd probably have ended up dating, and my refund wouldn't have mattered at all. Yeah. Right. Not buying it.
