Intercultural Communication: Culture Shock: Outsourced (film) (U11 - Activity) [VID]

The process of cultural adaptation makes for good story, a good movie. One of the more recent films to address culture shock is the award winning comedy Outsourced.

Do you see in the film the stages of cultural adaptation mentioned in previous posts?

Outsourced info: Wikipedia and IMDB
Outsourced is available for viewing on Netflix or Amazon.

There was also a 2010/11 U.S. TV series based on the film (Wikipedia | IMDB)
If you are interested, see the full first season free on Hulu.com.

Mr. Baseball is another film that I sometimes use to illustrate the stages of culture shock.  Just comparing the two trailers, notice any similarities between the two films?  See the stages of cultural adaptation?
