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.

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

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.
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.

August 15, 2018
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.

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.
August 15, 2018
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.
September 17, 2018
First impressions were that it's noisy, shouty and just not funny enough.

September 7, 2018
This earnest and heartfelt effort seems too eager to pursue mainstream conformity by emphasizing similarities rather than embracing differences.
August 14, 2018
[T]here's a good, complex story about the pressures of familial expectations ... but in the process of telling that story, the movie loses track of the romance...

August 16, 2018
As the obscenities of wealth accumulate while a large cast of Asian and Eurasian actors render their many silly characters, the source of the laughter becomes troubling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 13, 2018
The best scenes in the movie highlight why the core couple won't be remotely happy together...
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 17, 2018
Little more than a cascade of genre clichés, lightly dusted with heavy-handed, and arguably insensitive, cultural trappings.

What's in a name? It should be quite obvious that such a book title is intended to be satirical. That Nick has been hiding his wealth and privileged background in order to woo Rachel tells exactly the opposite of what the book/movie title conveys.
August 17, 2018
In the end, though, it would all be for naught if the film didn't have heart and it does. We care deeply about these characters-and the film does, too.
