This movie exists in a universe where someone who looks like Jennifer Lopez is a sad single girl who has to rely on an arranged marriage to get laid. Like many movies of its ilk, it’s yet another film that seems to believe working women can’t have fulfilling love lives, too, and instead they have to rely on contrived movie plots to meet the man of their dreams. Besides, being single isn’t microwaving TV dinners and looking sad all the time. Single girls can get fulfilled, too. Haven’t y’all heard of a vibrator?
