At one juncture, someone actually intones "this is like The Bachelor: Singapore", which struck me as a telling moment of self-awareness in a film that far too often relies on empty spectacle and cliché for effect.
There are meaningful observations about the ways that money warps relationships and how children struggle with their heritage. But by trying so hard to concoct a blowout party, the film exhausts and frustrates as much as it enlightens and delights.
It's great that commercial films are being made to appeal directly to groups that have previously been relegated to Hollywood's sidelines, but I can't get excited that they're being marketed the same generic crap as the rest of us.
