Cheesy and boring.

Entertaining rom-com. Watching it has made me add reading the next two books in the triology to my 'to-read' list when I'm looking for some light-hearted, easy fiction.

More like a fantasy and dream. I came from SouthEast Asia. Can tell you it is not real to be that rich in Singapore. I love the look of the lead actor and actress, but tired of Michelle Kwon.

Ugh. Unoriginal plot, shallow characters, nothing enjoyable about it.

I enjoyed this non serious movie about the rich and the poor. The first surprise to me was how well most of the actors and actresses spoke English as I would expect accents since the movie was suppose to be placed in Asia. I also liked the character of the side kick of the crazy friend of the main character. She was so outspoken as well as the rest of her family but sincere with friends. She had an energy to her character and spoke perfect English without any accent. I found it to be completely entertaining if you did not take the movie seriously.

Although I do not understand most of the songs presented in the soundtrack, this soundtrack is actually nice to listen to. It reminds me of different scenes from the feature film. My personal favourite track is Can’t Help Falling In Love by Kina Grannis, because it is used in the wedding scene and it’s the cover of Elvis Presley’s song of the same title. To be honest, most of the songs presented are not exactly my taste and would not be something I would listen to. I would listen to this if I wanted to be reminded of the movie and replay certain scenes from the film. Overall, I would give the soundtrack 3 out of 5 stars.

Crazy Rich Asians is an incredible movie that will keep you interested in every part of the movie. The movie is about Racheal Chu, who is dating Nick Young and she does not know that Nick comes from an extremely wealthy family, and she isn’t rich at all. The actors and actresses in this movie did an incredible job. There are also a lot of lessons that can be learned from this movie about family, and it’s just a great movie. This movie is one of the best romantic comedy movie that I have seen so far. In some parts I got really sad and wanted to cry, but overall it’s an incredible movie and you won’t regret watching it! I rate this movie a 5/5 @Khutoria of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Crazy Rich Asians is a romantic comedy released in 2018. The movie’s comedy comes from a few charismatic and funny side characters which were quite enjoyable. The movie follows Nick Young and his girlfriend Rachel Chu on their trip to Singapore for a wedding. As Rachel, an economics professor, is introduced to Nick’s family she finds out they are rich, crazy rich. The contrasting socioeconomic classes create most of the problems in the movie. The cinematography is great and gives you a peek into what it would be like to be crazy rich. The plot did not always follow the archetype for a romance movie but the ending was foreseeable. Overall this is a great movie and I would recommend this to anyone who likes romantic comedies. Four out of five stars.

Crazy Rich Asians, the movie directed by Jon M. Chu is about a woman named Rachel Chu. She is dating Nick Young and decides to accompany him to a wedding in Singapore. What she doesn’t know is that Nick’s family is incredibly wealthy and they’re very famous. On the trip, Rachel learns that she has to deal with all of the problems in her way now, especially Nick’s mother. The Crazy Rich Asians Film is probably one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. The cinematography of the movie is beautiful. The editing of all the scenes is very cool and something I haven’t seen in any other movie yet to date. The actors in the movie played their roles very well and I felt like the movie stayed true to the book. The movie took the characters and made them even more three-dimensional than they already were and delivered a great job. I give the movie a 5/5.

I dont know what all the fuss was about this movie. Its not that good. I have seen the same storyline several times. Must have received extra publicity because it was an Asian movie and they wanted to acknowledge that.

Many quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors, including this one:

Eleanor Young: There is a Hokkien phrase 'kaki lang'. It means: our own kind of people, and you're not our own kind.
Rachel Chu: Because I'm not rich? Because I didn't go to a British boarding school, or wasn't born into a wealthy family?
Eleanor Young: You're a foreigner. American - and all Americans think about is their own happiness.

Note: kaki lang (Hokkien pronunciation of 自家人, meaning “my own people”)
