Description

"Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

    Let me start by clarifying that I am not some insane bigot who hates this movie because it features Asian actors. I am liberal, well-educated, and work in China. I was incredibly excited to see a movie that would portray a familiar plot-line within the parameters of Chinese cultural expectations. Needless to say, that didn't happen. The reason I hate this movie has nothing to do with personal prejudices and everything to do with the fact that it is terrible, poorly-written, contrived, trash. Basically, what you are watching here is the lowest caliber of rom-com tripe, dressed in the moral superiority of identity politics. Remove the novelty of casting Asians, and this is a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes, at best. The jokes are forced, the dialogue is poorly written, the plot is insultingly uninventive...I mean, jesus christ. This movie might be taught in a class at Harvard Business School entitled: "how to profit off of the uninformed moral righteousness of the masses by feeding them recycled garbage." But other than those things, it was great.

    I went into this film thinking it was a comedy, Well sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's moving and wonderful. Its always hitting on all cylinders and it never loses pace. Another "Cinderella" story only this time it's Asia and the good do well after all. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!
  • Amazing! Just not like the book.

    The film is amazing, with great cinematography, acting, and music, and I loved the moments of contrast between Asian Americans and Asians. So refreshing to watch! But if you're hoping for a direct adaptation of the book, it's not quite there. Several of the characters were tweaked slightly, and the final act unfolds somewhat differently, but it actually works so much better for the movie format. The book's ending still is fantastic, but some stories can't be adapted directly to film.
  • Good but not great

    I will watch it again and again because I like a good romantic comedy. But there were parts that seemed over the top corny (like the scene towards the end on the plane). Loved the wedding scene! Beautiful scenery! Definitely a chick movie.
