A rom com replete with luscious and unexpected views of beautiful Singapore and the local food. The characters are engaging and interesting. The pacing was perfect - there wasn’t a dull moment. The actress who played Constance Wu’s mother, Kheng Hua Tan, stole the show in what few scenes she had, infusing her moments with deep and believable gravity. I hope she’s in the sequel. Overall great movie. Will watch again (actually did!).
Adds a new slant to the rom-com genre.
Wow so many good reviews from both critics and Tribute viewers. I guess i watched a different movie with the same title as I really didn't think it was very good. It seemed like one of those made-for-TV Hallmark romance shows, except with an all Asian cast and set primarily in Singapore. And no, before everyone gets all bent out of shape, I am not racist and it has nothing to do with the fact it has an Asian cast - I would have found it just as lame if it were an all American cast or an all Swedish cast or an all 'fill in the blank here' cast. It just wasn't that good. Characters were two-dimensional, subplots were not developed very well, and conflicts seemed too easily resolved. It really just reminded me of a made for cable TV movie. Anyway, just my 2 cents (or in this case, my 2 stars). PS - I love Asian people!
I watched it three times because it was that good!
This movie is in my Top 3 of movies that came out in 2018
This is the type of movie that gives you the feel good and fantasy-escape experience but not equivalent to the outrageous explosive type funny movie like”the Hangover”. I say Crazy Rich Asians movie is NOT a 5-star movie, I give it 5+ stars; for I still remember the movie with a good feeling.
Awesome movie! Go see it. Great group of diverse actors. Hope to see this type of story again.
The movie didn’t have any plot, character or dialogue that was interesting or original. It was the same tired old story set in Singapore, staring asian actors. Very handsome leading man though
Great fun and place. Believable
Super fun, very magical. Slightly more emotional than I was expecting, but I loved most everything about it.
It was really funny clean good comedy haven’t seen a good movie in awhile this is a must see well written and the actors were great 👍🏾
I really liked seeing Asians & Asian/Americans show a little sense of humor, it was refreshing!👍
The best part of the film (for me) was the beautiful scenes of Asia that made me reminisce about my trip to Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore earlier this year. The story is simple and predictable, lacking the gripping family drama I expected but it was mildly enjoyably with a few laughs along the way. I went with the girls and we had fun marvelling at the over-the-top wedding, beautiful mansions and trendy fashion (definitely a chick-flick). There is no way my husband would have sit through this.
Ideas from 30 years ago. Not very funny.
Helps to be connected to the Asian American community to catch the puns, quips and ethnic witticisms. Classic comedy that will stand the test of time. A must see!!
Love it. A modern Cinderella story though so typical of reality.
Amazing! I saw it with my bud and they enjoyed it just the same!
Thoroughly enjoyable rom-com. A sort of Cinderella story retold in modern terms. The actors were terrific, and the dialogue was sharply humorous. It was a wonderful social satire that has universal appeal.
Please do not waste your money or time . Not funny at lol....extremely predictable.. Truly , find another movie
This movie really needed Bruce Willis.
I LOVED IT AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I really enjoyed!,, fun and light and no shooting and violence !,need more movies like this!,
I’ve seen this twice and I’m going back to watch it again next week.
Ive seen this twice, a great movie.
I loved it so much, I’m seeing it again tomorrow. Very entertaining, in every category.
Very entertaining. Glad i went with the wife
True to life
was okay. a professor and didn't think to google the guy? nice scenery.
A simple light hearted date movie with some funny moments. If you go in with that expectation you will be good.
Amazing! Amazing movie! Went 3 times to watch this movie and there were no seats! Beautiful Love story and showcases Singapore's beauty...almost like Dubai. All the characters were wonderful and saw many different age groups in the theater enjoying this movie. People of mixed diversity were among those laughing along with us. Clean, decent film with beautiful scenery.
Best marketing Ever. Got ratings by Who? I could only stand it for 1 hour. I had to walk out. Should have gotten my money back. No conflict, really who cares, very boring nothing happens.
A funny movie
Started slow then enjoyed it and loved the wedding
Loved this movie!
I did not read the book. My mind was open to the story. One successful beautiful college instructor is invited to boyfriend's cousins wedding in Singapore. I love the scenery in Malaysia and a Bachelor party on a container ship such fun. The wedding is Beautiful! I won't tell you about controlling mothers and grandmothers they drive the story. Go see this movie It is a good time!
Boring and certainly not a comedy. During the movie I had 3 options: take a nap, leave, or endure it to the end. I endured it but still not sure if that was my best choice. Skip this movie.
