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 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.
It will more than satisfy the sweet tooth of romantic comedy fans everywhere who have lately despaired that the frothy, frolicsome genre they adore has been subsumed by raunch and various shades of gray.
"Crazy Rich Asians" is about so much more than just Rachel and Nick's love story. It's about Rachel fully inhabiting her power, which means embracing her life story: her parentage, where she comes from, her values and the forces that shaped them.
In the guise of a bouncy romcom about insanely gorgeous rich kids, the pointedly entertaining Crazy Rich Asians is making history as the first Hollywood film in 25 years to feature an all-Asian cast. It's also "the" comedy to see this summer.
"Crazy Rich Asians" is a defibrillator for a genre that flatlined ages ago. This heartwarming, well-acted - and decadent - film takes you back to the greatest hits of Nancy Meyers, Richard Curtis and Nora Ephron.
Seeing this kind of onscreen representation is incredibly satisfying, especially via Kwan's rich page-turner, loaded with cattiness but also plenty of Asian diversity, from wholesome friends and wise confidantes to jealous mean girls and scheming parents.
The film's arrival is undeniably momentous. But it's nearly as vital that Crazy Rich is a romantic comedy -- a genre that relies on charisma above all else. The film's stereotype-busting approach is multifarious.
Directed by Jon M. Chu with a combination of traditional aesthetics (silk dresses, tan hua flowers) and music-video excess (infinity pools, barge-raves), Crazy Rich Asians is nothing if not an escapist pleasure.
This adaptation of Kevin Kwan's 2013 international bestseller is many things: a tour de force of lifestyle pornography, a slick, enjoyable divertissement, a surprisingly trenchant study of class and cultural difference.
