Apart from the representation-argument, the film itself was... average. The plot was trope-laden, the performances were average at best, and most characters were cut-outs of your usual rom-com cast.

If any Hollywood movie were so completely devoid of black, Asian or Latino characters it would be torn to shreds by the same critics that find Crazy Rich Asians refreshing and empowering.

Jon M. Chu's Crazy Rich Asians, the film, is sufficiently unastonishing; a meandering though nevertheless engrossing romantic comedy
August 14, 2018
For all its carnival-like antics, Crazy Rich Asians is all too aware of its own spectacle.
August 27, 2018
This attention to the wealth of the 1% is just conspicuous consumption of another sort, and it ain't pretty or funny.
August 15, 2018
This is an American film through and through, one that, due to what it is depicting, delves into frankly repulsive and shortsighted territory.

Despite Wu's sympathetic performance as an independent woman willing to sacrifice her own happiness, in the end it's still all about getting the guy.
January 31, 2019
This somewhat cheesy crowd-pleaser offers a great deal of neurotic gossip addressed with annoying pomposity and superfluous multi-cultural fashion.

'Crazy Rich Asians' is a groundbreaker steeped with familiarity and cliches

October 24, 2018
A romantic comedy that connects with our times, but its artistic level does not transcend the generic rules and formulas. [Full Review in Spanish]

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.

Jon M. Chu's landmark film glosses over questions of wealth and cultural identity for sake of spectacle.
October 25, 2018
No matter how many jokes are made that pretend to laugh at the rich, there is a rejoicing in capitalist inequality that borders on obscenity. [Full review in Spanish]
September 14, 2018
Though undeniably sweet and funny in parts, I thought it mostly vacuous, lazily- plotted nonsense.

Crazy Rich Asians is culturally significant, but it's still about a girl falling in love with the prince.

Still, there's no doubt Crazy Rich Asians will have an impact on some Asian American audiences, who have been craving proper representation for years. They deserve a better movie.

Crazy Rich Asians looks more like a glossy tourist magazine produced for an international economics summit than a movie.
August 16, 2018
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.
August 16, 2018
A beautiful, bland affair.

As for the cast, though she doesn't make a false step, Wu is nonetheless totally wasted. So is Yeoh.
