Great movie! Exciting and lots of interesting characters and modern storyline. Funny and yet realistic, especially in the culture differences. Lots of depth in story even though plenty of light-hearted moments. Almost funny how it resembled most American comedies, but this one has heart and the strangeness of a new culture kept me interested. Get this for a happy change of pace! I recommend to anyone! It will keep you entertained.

Loved this because of the chemistry between the main pair! They made this movie great-- not just funny playing off of stereotypes (though there are many hilarious and pointed scenes of racially charged humor/ humorous racial-social commentary). But there's a believable, down-to-earth love story underneath drama and obstacles and cultural differences.

Also, Fanie kinda looks like a rounder Nathan Fillion. :D
