Movie Info

"Crazy Rich Asians" follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (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 (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

For all its carnival-like antics, Crazy Rich Asians is all too aware of its own spectacle.

Mostly, the movie is committed to the value of a good time.

Here's a love story with genuine stakes, grown-up characters and a great sense of fun. Having radically exceeded my hard-hearted expectations, it should leave romcom fans feeling as delighted as children on Christmas day.

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Although the humor is variable, the romance is consistent and that allows the film to go down smoothly even if it takes an inordinately long time to do so.

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Crazy Rich Asians" is about so much more than just Rachel and Nick's love story. It's about Rachel fully inhabiting her power, which means embracing her life story: her parentage, where she comes from, her values and the forces that shaped them.

Crazy Rich Asians joyously embraces a heightened aesthetic while keeping its story grounded in real emotional truth.
