An excellent film
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found "John & Jane: Toll Free" to be quite well directed, with excellent cinematography and an overt avoidance of trying to send a "message" about the whether the call centers in India are good or bad. Through an unbiased examination of several call workers lives, we get to see the absurdity of both the Americans (who are being sold worthless products, or "slammed" for a different long distance provider) and the Indians (who alternately view the call center as a way out of poverty or the chains which keep them in it).

The amusing stories and all-too-real humanity contained throughout the film certainly kept my interest.
