I wasn't really sure about this movie because it seems impossible to me that Chelsea Islan would try this genre, romantic comedy. It's quite different from her previous movies, which are all serious and history related, except of course Refrain, which was her debut movie.
So, my first impression about this movie was spot-on. I watched the first fifteen minutes and I was bored already. The comedy is kinda trashy, I have to say. Why all the English learners have to be from various ethnicity? What a coincidence! And they're not funny at all! That's why I stopped watching it and started it again the next few weeks.
Surprisingly, the next scene was much better. It made me laugh although certain jokes degraded women. I think both Chelsea and Hamish did a great job. Hamish totally gave his all to act as a low class dude. As a sad scene, Chelsea Islan did quite so good it made me teary. Well, I did cry. This was what I didn't expect from this movie. Great job both of you. But, the story itself actually didn't really strong. I mean, the details are not so convincing, especially the family background of Amira and ones of Miller Khan's role. The change of personality of Miller Khan's somehow irrelevant to me. Why brought up family if you couldn't make a good description about them?
