Crazy Rich Asians

Three rich Chinese families prepare for the wedding of the year in this comedy starring Constance Wu (TV's Fresh Off the Boat), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Henry Golding.

American-born Rachel Chu (Wu) travels to her boyfriend Nick's (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend's wedding. But before long, the secret is out: Nick is from an impossibly wealthy family, making him one of the most eligible bachelors in Asia. From then on, every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.

Crazy Rich Asians begins, like Disney's Beauty and the Beast, with a woman in the pouring rain seeking refuge and a place to stay for the night. Unlike the fairy tale princess who impersonates a helpless hag, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh) has phoned ahead. But the staff at the counter of the hotel where she is supposed to stay reject her, because she is Asian and they are racist. Retaining her composure, Eleanor – who we soon discover is enormously wealthy – makes a phone call. Within minutes an elderly gentleman arrives in the lobby to congratulate her on purchasing the premises.

If history were to repeat itself, it’s absolutely fathomable that we won’t see another film like Crazy Rich Asians—a Hollywood studio-backed movie featuring an all-Asian cast—for another eternity. But given the recent groundswell in the support for greater screen diversity, I’d like to believe this won’t be the case. A fitting, glammier cousin to Pixar’s wonderful animated short Bao, the film qualifies as a truly momentous achievement for Asian representation.

A movie that expertly manages to balance the opulence of incalculable wealth with the pragmatic, well-grounded sensibility embodied by its heroine, Rachel Chu (Constance Wu).

Crazy Rich Asians is breathless fun - rather weightless, too.

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.

Mostly, the movie is committed to the value of a good time.

A film that far too often relies on empty spectacle and cliché for effect.

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.

Los Angeles Times

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.

A thoroughly captivating exploration of the rarefied question of whether true love can conquer head-spinning wealth.
