Aside from these important issues of representation and diversity, Crazy Rich Asians marks a welcome return for the funny, giddy, likeable, glamorous Hollywood romcom.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

We want to see Rachel win [Eleanor] respect: Crouching Matriarch, Hidden Dragon. Hollywood, prepare to be beaten at more than mah jong.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

First impressions were that it's noisy, shouty and just not funny enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 17, 2018
A comedy with brains and glamour, Crazy Rich Asians arrives in cinemas long after most of us had given up hope of ever seeing a really great romcom again.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

It is the sweet and funny journey with its issues around wealth and family honour versus personal happiness and to an extent, nationality after immigration, that give the film a certain newness.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 16, 2018
Deeply satisfying in the way of a by-the-books romantic comedy that has found good character-based reasons for checking all of the boxes that need to be checked.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 15, 2018
Somewhere between My Big Fat Greek Wedding and a Jane Austen novel: meticulous and hilariously alert to social structures, family dynamics and money, with a plucky underdog heroine.

Michelle Yeoh takes the acting honours as the heroine's steely prospective mother-in-law.
September 14, 2018
Michelle Yoh is terrific not least because... you have [her] character who is very not funny in a way which is kind of impressive in a comedy.
September 14, 2018
A culturally complex, swoon-worthy rom-com.
September 14, 2018
In many ways, this supposed celebration of diversity disappoints. It doesn't matter. Its unpredictable female leads are as good as gold.

Though undeniably sweet and funny in parts, I thought it mostly vacuous, lazily- plotted nonsense.

Chu's film brings the wealth porn of Dallas and Dynasty back with a bang.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 13, 2018
Crazy Rich Asians has done the impossible - created a romantic comedy not only funny and dazzling but politically relevant too, without betraying its genre-bound duty to warm the heart.

Watch this film, fall in love - and buy a handful of scratch cards on the way home.

The director, Jon M Chu, thankfully, knows his rom-coms. There's Pretty Woman in here. There's Bridget Jones and Ever After, but he's made them new.

And what it's doing right is showing white people that they don't own Hollywood any more, and maybe everyone wants to applaud that. In this way, it's a terrific film.
September 13, 2018
[A] good-natured and spectacular comedy...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Director Jon M. Chu keeps the plot racing along as Rachel is introduced to a small army of her boyfriend's relatives and friends.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 12, 2018
The whole film has an idiotic Úlan. It's a Jane Austen story done as razzmatazz romcom, plus a bit of all-singing, all-dancing Rebecca.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
