This is not a film that is pretentious. Instead, it is a rather charming comedy and a nice film to watch if you are looking for some easy laughs. As the other review said, some of the characters are clichéd - so what? If you are an American watching this you will be transported into a world you likely never knew existed. It always interests me to see how people are the same wherever they are in the world, and also how they are different. We have in this film a clash between the impersonal modern world, and a slower way of life where everyone is connected. I think anyone who is disappointed by this film simply expected it to be something that it is not.
