Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Innocuous but too-cutesy affair."
‑ Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly
"Bright, good-spirited and blissfully short for Bollywood, at a mere 118 minutes."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"A pleasing sendup of dating, high-tech contract employment and the immigrant experience. If you're Indian-American, you can add five or six stars to any critic's rating."
‑ Joshua Tanzer, Offoffoff
"A good-natured Indian-American romantic comedy in the style of Bend It Like Beckham."
‑ Richard James Havis, Hollywood Reporter
"There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"The cast, a mix of beauty-contest winners, models, veteran actors and newcomers, is as diverse as the characters they play and work together surprisingly smoothly."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The constant cell phone chatter and pervasive split screen do little to prop up a limp, poorly structured screenplay."
‑ Joshua Land, Village Voice
"This is light fare, but it draws its strength from a strong ensemble cast, in the spirit of Love Actually, and the sweetness of its characters."
‑ Scott Colby, Toronto Star
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
