Crazy Rich Asians Reviews

August 30, 2018
Feels blithely liberated from the obligation to offer up suffering that has long been part of the implicit bargain made with so many mainstream movies focused on characters of color-that they are treated as marketable in relation to the pain they portray

The result is hugely enjoyable, and hooray for Hollywood for making it happen.

This movie is totally delightful...It's a wonderful mix of old-fashioned screwball comedy, romantic comedy, it's almost a musical at some points.

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.

It simply tells an endearing story in an exceptional way. And in so doing, it shows how great stories cross barriers and wind up enriching the world around us.

For a while, "Crazy Rich Asians" has the airborne, happy preposterousness of a good screwball comedy. Those first 60 minutes or so are a treat: lighthearted, sure-handed, zippy.

It's simply great fun, a winsome romantic comedy and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.

"Crazy Rich Asians" isn't just a good Hollywood movie for the Asian American population, and one that is overdue by about 24 years. It's a good movie, period.

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.

The extravagance on display is nonsensical, but that's part of the fun; the movie is filmed with colorful dynamism by Jon M. Chu..the.embrace of all things lush and unsubtle makes Crazy Rich Asians such a great time at the theater.
