No trip to India is complete without a viewing of a Bollywood movie, so while in Mumbai we all bought first-class ($3) tickets to an afternoon showing of Bollywood's latest romantic comedy, Tanu Weds Manu.
While Dave, Russ and Erica napped, Jenn and I watched the movie with rapt attention. Because the film was in Hindi, we did the best we could to figure out what was going on. It turns out that the film's tagline, "A wonderful mismatch" could not have been more appropriate to describe the disconnect between our version of the film and the actual plot. After you watch the trailer, take a look at the two plot descriptions below - mine and Jenn's, and the one from Wikipedia. Honestly, which is more ridiculous?

(Besides the obvious definition, which I assume was not what was intended)
