Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he's perhaps the most eligible… Runtime: 120 min Release Date: 15 Aug 2018
One of the best -- if not THE best -- romantic comedies of the year. (by OneWithTheArt72)
Crazy Rich Asians, based on the best-selling book of the same name which I have yet to read , is nothing short of a delightful comedy-drama that'll reach everyone, Asian heritage or not.New York-based economics professor Rachel Chu Constance Wu is in a very loving relationship with Nick Young Henry Golding , who, when invited to his best friend's wedding in Singapore, reveals that his family is wealthy. And not just "comfortable" but Kardashian wealthy.Upon their arrival, Rachel finds herself swept away by the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Her old college roommate, <more>
Goh Peik Lin Awkwafina , is there for her, and serves as much of the film's biggest laughs. The main obstacle of Rachel and Nick's relationship is Nick's mother, Eleanor a very intimidating Michelle Yeoh , who doesn't believe that she's good enough.Praise to all performances shout out to the always hilarious Ken Jeong as Peik Lin's father and I never thought this day would come excellent directorial work from Jon M. Chu, whom I still hold responsible for the destruction of Jem and the Holograms. But applause all around for one of the summer's best non-action movies.
I don't understand how IMDB can give 6.8 rating for this movie. Are these based on the critics review? I read movie review and I get that some reviewers will point a flaw on how It is impossible that Rachel didn't know that his boyfriend's family is crazy rich in Singapore with the existence of internet and Google. But it is a romantic comedy MOVIE. It is a MOVIE. There are lots of flaws in Mission Impossible Fallout but it still gets 8.2 stars. We pay to see it to be entertained. And I ignore the critic review on the movie that I want to watch. To me Constance Wu and Michele Yeoh <more>
were amazing in the movie. Henry Golding is excellent for 1st time actor. He seems comfortable and his acting was natural. An excellent choice to potrait Nick Young. I love to see Constancw and Henry as a couple in the movie. You guys sell it. I've been to Singapore numerous time and it is a beautiful city/country. Singaporean foods are excellent. Singapore is a great example as a place where people from different races, religion and cultural can live in harmony and respect each other. I plan to watch this movie two times or maybe more.
Really great Rom Com- a film for everyone (by hobbiezm)
I watched an early showing of the movie to a full cinema. I wondered what type of demographics would be represented in opening night and was pleasantly surprised that it was a complete mix! As the lights faded the opening scene of Elenor Young displaying true power was immediately staged and I found myself immersed in the filmThe chemistry of the two leads was amazing - Constance really displayed her acting chops in the Majong scene and Henry showed surprising depth- he is leading man material. The supporting characters all had incredibly strong personalities and I do wish Gemma Chan's <more>
arc had been more personified- here's to hoping for the sequel.The 3rd act dragged a bit - but the humor of Akwafina, Ken Jeong was in on point. It's defined as a Rom com but it's an emotionally charged film, one if humor, splendor and crazy Families surrounded by opulence and wonder.Loved every moment and can't wait to see it again!
Gorgeous and Entertaining, and Worth Seeing Again! (by pandoraborrego)
I was so excited when I first learned that Kevin Kwan's "Crazy Rich Asians" was going to become a film! The book was way more appealing than I had first imagined it would be, and I'm happy to report that Jon Chu's screen version has surpassed my hopeful-but-wary expectations. Not to make it sound too simplistic, the movie was beautiful and very, very funny. Go see it!Yes, it is a romantic comedy - but this has such intriguing social and cultural undercurrents that it tempts even the fairly observant watcher away from taking the "Cinderella" story at its glitzy <more>
face value. While the numerous characters had to have their backstories compressed to fit into just two hours, we are given enough great dialogue, effervescent or slightly evil portrayals, and sumptuous visual clues to make the friends and family members in Singapore come alive. All the aunties, cousins and ladies-in-waiting may be slightly overwhelming for people who haven't read the book, but anyone with wacky friends and pompous relatives should get it, even if they are not Asian. I liked film's especially clever use of graphics, as well as the smooth-to-rocking score, the lush and verdant locations, the perfect designer costuming, and pretty much everything else. One of my favorite lines was about having attended Cal State Fullerton; but you must to watch it for yourself. I honestly have not laughed out loud during a film this much in decades. Oh, and I rather liked Chris Pang, too. A totally hot actor, even though I'm old enough to be his mother.As soon as Crazy Rich Asians officially opens, I'm going to catch it again. The preview was not enough, and there were so many little moments that deserve a second or third look. Now we must all hope that a sequel with the same talented cast and Chu in charge is coming our way before too long. Thank you all, you fabulous Asian actors, crew, writers and backers who made this possible. And no, I'm not of even a little bit Asian ancestry.
It's closer to reality than you think (by tjklaehn)
I am a late middle aged, overweight, balding, white, male, American who worked in Singapore during the 1990's and then took my family there for the opening of the skypark in 2010. This was actually an advantage since I was always waived though immigration, customs, and the casino entrance the casino is free for foreigners, $100/day for Singaporeans . If anyone asks me what the major religion of Singapore is I just tell them that they worship money. It's true. Yes they have churches, temples, and mosques - but nothing can compete with money. Starting a conversation asking about <more>
investment options is normal. Comments on the movie: It's a loooonnnngggg plane ride. I never got first class, business class was great on Singapore Air, barely tolerable on US airlines. You may die in economy and no one will care. The "street food" scenes are accurate but a misnomer. You don't buy food off of vendors on the street - they are gathered together in strictly regulated food courts. Hawker centers are outdoor and usually visited at night. Food courts are air conditioned and connected to shopping malls, slightly more expensive than hawker centers but worth it for a fat white guy. Speaking of air conditioning, Singapore is equatorial. It's hot. It's humid. The sun is directly overhead at noon and would melt lead on the sidewalk except that you would be arrested for littering the sidewalk with lead. Speaking of being arrested in Singapore, if you are a reasonably well adjusted human being don't worry about it. Illegal drugs and violent crimes carry the death penalty. It is rarely imposed because people have learned not to do these things. Singapore posts a lot of laws because they are an amalgamation of many cultures. If you don't know whether it is acceptable to defecate in public there will be a sign to tell you not to. Anyway I enjoyed the movie. Unfortunately my daughter will probably not have such a great wedding.
Funny, Witty, Well Constructed And Highly Recommended! (by myannawedes)
I loved every moment of Crazy Rich Asians. It was well put together and constructed. The cast made it memorable, funny and the wittiness romance a pleasure to watch. I must say that the cast and crew worked beautifully together to create a movie to transcend across generations and time. Yes it made me feel like dumplings and going on a culinary adventure as well as warm, fuzzy and sore cheeks from quality entertainment. Highly recommended and glad that it came to the cinema and not direct because the idea of sitting in a cinema with strangers laughing is a real past time experience that we <more>
should continue to embrace, enjoy and be grateful for. Job well done Jon M. Chu. It is really cool to see a film make such an impact in 2018.10/10 for the sets, costumes and scenery!
It's Almost Like...Everyone Missed the Point (by michaela_la)
I'm confused by the criticism of this movie by other users - this wasn't made for people who want to be rich & glamorous, it literally showed how shallow & void the overly-rich & indulgent were. You were supposed to feel disgusted by them at many points in the film. But it was less about the flashy cars & parties, & more about the relationship between a girl & her boyfriend's family, as well as the identity crises that arise for an immigrant in America.
Love and laughs from literature (by soulsk8ter225)
No, I'm not talking about Fifty Shades of Grey!The romantic comedy genre is a flavor that gets a bad rap for being one-note and heavily playing on sappy/silly tropes, even if that is not always the case. I have learned to expand my horizons when it comes to the genre and fit more good titles in there that don't necessary hit that mark. Last year, we were graced with the best of the genre staple I've seen in a long time in The Big Sick because of its strong writing. I am pleased to say that we have a winner again this year, and a lot of it has everything to do with how the editing <more>
complements the writing and directing.Crazy Rich Asians is an entry that treads lightly on both the romance and comedy there are plenty of laughs to be had, I just never got an abs workout or fell out of my chair is all and instead delivers a story built around culture, respect and trust, taking pages from Meet the Parents and The Devil Wears Prada. It is an absolutely accessible film for all audience members, even if they might have had *ehem* so good of a time that I couldn't hear some lines because of the overdrawn laughter from others. Through framing, editing and choice of music, director Jon Chu finds a way of bringing about action in a film that is entirely devoid of it. He really highlights Singapore as a character in the film full of vibrancy and vivacity, claiming set-pieces to dictate entire acts of the story. There is a lot of symbolism that is foreshadowed very subtly, and almost everything has a payoff instead of making the audience question what a certain setup was meant for. We get to see the crazy-rich invite us to their fantastical routines as side-characters like Awkwafina hilariously bask it all in and takes nothing for granted. We envy their possessions, even if we may not envy their lifestyle.The first 1/3rd of the film is wide-open throttle on the gas pedal. There are colorful overlays to indicate locations and text messages that mesh with what is going on in the image, and they feel as if they want to arrive to the story about as fast as Get Out. Characters are introduced so fast that you will want to bring a pad and pen to web-diagram the whole thing, but Chu made a smart choice in having the audience remember characters less by their names and faces and more with their actions, like when you play a name game icebreaker with a large unfamiliar group. You start to figure out where people stand on the totem pole us audience members are clearly at the bottom and get to enter Rachel's mind while she's absorbing things as a "fish out of water" at a breakneck pace, and we have to do the same. This representation may be that of the 1% end of things, but the wealth is only in your face from a glamorizing perspective and is not too in your face with snobbery constructed from their wallet and purse sizes.Once this is all enacted we reach the second 1/3rd of the film, which lets off of that gas pedal and coasts for quite a while. It hit me rather fast like brake lights and I wasn't expecting it, so I called the film out a bit on its inconsistent pace and didn't feel the typical story arc of "rising action." Thankfully, what was lost in that art was found in character chemistry and intensity. Our main protagonist couple is a duo worth rooting for as they yearn for a cathartic endgame with one another, despite what morals stand in their way. They drive the story's purpose, but they are on the bland end of personality when it comes to delivering the comedic goods, and this is totally okay; they let those around them bring us most of the character and laughs. A couple of them are thrown in for the cheap shtick, but there are nearly a dozen characters which get the limelight with their own romantic subplots. This ends up being more than just one love story, and normally I would consider this a detriment but this drawn out middle act of the film spends a lot of time establishing tangible and intangible values, and these characters' interactions are a big part of that. We get a lot of conversation regarding the betterment of characters from each side of the proverbial fence that separates rich versus not-rich, Chinese versus American cultures, and wants versus needs. In a movie that could have easily only stated messages for an elite class of individuals or specific ethnic group, they spend a long time catering to the other 99% so we can be a part of the journey and not just seeing it from a particular lens. I am purposely leaving out the story's pulse of tension between Rachel and Nick's mother, because I would like for you to strap in and see it all for yourself. As the film puts it at one point: it basically starts to feel like the two characters are playing chicken and they want to see who swerves away first. It doesn't quite reach Stiller vs. DeNiro or Hathaway vs. Streep in their respective film roles, but these two characters have a lot more to say that speaks to us and possible predicaments that we may encounter, especially regarding the ideas of family and what it means to be a part of one beyond the surface level.We transition into the final 1/3rd of the film where I feel the story arc had found its footing again. I was recognizing aspects of resolve taking place, affect brought personal emotions within me to rise more I started to get the feels when a scene took place where the only thing you hear are the sultry echoes covering an Elvis Presley gem , and although this is a romantic comedy that may hit some of the stereotypes that other ones do, you don't dismiss it as a negative thing because the way we arrive at those points feels organic and validating. I could not predict where this story was going to go or what it wanted me to come home with earlier on, but by the time we hit the credits there is one minor "mid-credits" moment thirty seconds in, in case you intend on leaving your chair immediately I was completely understanding of Chu's conveyed intent that he displayed within the two-hour runtime. Ironically, his statement exceeds that of the film reel and the novel that this film adaptation is based upon. He is playing chicken with Hollywood, and I think he will strike victory here. Like Black Panther earlier this year and The Big Sick last year, we are beginning to realize that 'serving the underserved' is a good business strategy when there is a story to be told that requires exactly that. I am excited that both this film and Searching please give that a look in a couple of weeks is garnishing Asian leads without it feeling like an intolerable offense. Yes, one film is based upon that culture and the other just so happens to utilize characters of that background, but it just goes to show that mainstream audiences are willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and come out the other side with smiles on their faces, saying that the film is "good" and not needing to bat and eye over the fact that they were not graced on screen with a white male lead. I could have done my review without stating any of this, but I really think this is one part that separates this from many other romantic comedies.From the earlier marketing, I did not expect this movie to win me over. It did, and I think you will feel the same if/when you decide to check this one out. Story-wise I felt some unevenness, but Jon Chu strikes enough visual flair to make a duvet out of a blanket. What could have been a tedious sitting was instead a raucously good time, and I really feel like there is something for everybody here. It is a recommended watch. Go check it out.
Kept my wife awake until the end (by alanthony333)
My wife is the type of person who falls asleep if the movie is boring or uninteresting. With Crazy Rich Asians, she stayed awake until the end.I have three insights on it: 1. Crazy Rich, Asians! 2. Live Action Asian Disney Princess minus the powers 3. Normal Asian Family TraditionOverall, the movie was good. It was the generic princess type movie but the Asian theme made it unique in my opinion . I had a few laughs on it. I recommend it. You'll have a good time.
