Movie Info & Cast
Native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) has found a nearly perfect boyfriend in Nick (Henry Golding). But when he invites Rachel to Singapore to meet his family and attend the wedding of his best friend, she realizes that her personal Prince Charming is more of a prince than she’d realized. It turns out he’s the heir to one of the wealthiest families in the country – and also one of its most eligible bachelors. As if feeling like a fish out of water amidst all that opulence wasn’t bad enough, Rachel has to contend with jealous socialites and the disapproval of Nick’s intimidating and influential mother (Michelle Yeoh). Their love may be strong, but is it stronger than the combined power of family AND money? Based on the bestselling novel by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians is directed by Jon M. Chu. The impressive cast also includes Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina and Ken Jeong.

#ASIANAMERICANREPRESENT! I cried throughout the movie and after in the parking lot because I finally saw my face -- as in an Asian face in mainstream media in the forefront, not just in the background. I can't wait for them to announce a second movie because there are THREE BOOKS in this series. I am expecting a second! Amazing chemistry with all of the actors and a wonderful story was brought to life from a different perspective -- one that I am most familiar with.
The book was fabulous and so was the movie!
Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians is good, though, even if it is a little overcrowded.
Emotionally layered, culturally specific, and frequently hilarious, Crazy Rich is a transportive delight, with food montages to die for (the film offers a splendid showcase of Singapore’s justly celebrated street-food scene) and a wedding processional so exquisite I started crying at its sheer beauty.
It's both a relief and a pleasure to report that this high-gloss rom-com — based on the bestselling novel of a Singaporean author, directed by an Asian-American and featuring an all-Asian cast — is such a thoroughly captivating exploration of the rarefied question of whether true love can conquer head-spinning wealth.
