A film by Jon M. Chu
Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh
The story takes us native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family. Ho! boy!!!!! Good luck.
After teaching her economics class, Rachel (Constance Wu) meets her boyfriend at a crowded Manhattan bar in New York City. But she has no idea that they are not ordinary people, well her boyfriend is the Nick (Henry Golding) is the heir to one of the wealthiest real estate companies in Singapore. He keeps it a secret until they take off first class by plane. You see they’re traveling to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding.
Here is the film that is going to be a bath of gold, diamonds, jewelry and exotic cars plus helicopters and lavishing real estates. The film becomes predictable to me nothing you have not seeing before but there is a message here. I’ll get back to it. Rachel here is going to be overwhelm with a lot of gossip and bullshit. But she is witty, intelligent, and can out smart them all. Secrets will be revealed and so on. To get accepted in the family it is not going to be easy. In the middle of the film I knew were this was going. The message is the love of a mother for her son. The mother knows what is best for her son and is that. Crazy Rich Asians may feels like luxurious 1930s MGM comedy but asian style. The is an importance here about food, culture, and relationship. Not too bad for a film here you will have a good time but for my taste a little too predictable.
