Crazy Rich Asians follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
Q-tips say: Mrs. Q says: I really expected a little more from the movie but the fact that most actors were Asian was no big deal. What family doesn’t have some questions about the person your son or daughter are planning to marry? I’m still thinking about this movie and why it would be so popular? Did the producer have to buy all the tickets in the movie theater just to make sure it would be “sold out” and assure it would be popular? Mr. Q liked it but also was wondering why it was so popular. Seen many other movies like it.
