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.

The movie “Crazy Rich Asians” , directed by Jon M. Chu was released in theatres in 2018. This movie was based on a book that was based on the director’s (Jon M Chu) upbringing. This movie is interesting because of all of the Chinese family traditions , and how the family interacts with each other along with the traditions. The comedy in this movie really got my attention. I liked that it does contained many situations that are challenging for the families, like having kids study outside of their home country and wanting them to come home to run a family business and giving a deadline to their return, and judging anyone's new boyfriend or girlfriend until the family is won over. The movie shows that the main characters do not really care about the expensive things and everyone in the end cares about their relationships and goals. The movie gets you interested from the beginning. I like that I learned more about Asian culture after the movie but also the content. I would rate this movie 5/5 stars for being funny, appropriate for family with just enough jokes for parents. Over all just a great movie and I loved it. @Bluemlk of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

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.

Blech. Rom-Coms. This was pretty bad.

I watched the whole thing and was not completely bored, but I do think realistically this was not a great movie. It never really came across as truly believable, truly sincere, truly moving. The best comparison I can think of (though, as a Christian, this pains me to say) is Christian movies... they just come across as not as good as what you'd usually expect from a high-production well-scripted film.

But I love the Kina Grannis "Can't Help Falling In Love" acoustic cover that is featured, and this also happens to be the most moving part of the movie (and one reason why I checked out the movie). Cheers!

Truly awful film. What a waste of Asian talent in this insipid "romance" movie. Utterly a complete waste of time. Even for free you feel robbed of the time spent watching this drivel.

Visually stunning, over the top rich folks, and a love story (continued in the later books). With respect for the Asian characters--except for those whose wealth allows them to be complete and total crazy.

In this time of screaming politics, it is good to see nice--and very smart--people fall in love.

The explanation of the mahjong scene (in the extras of the DVD) adds to the story.

Pretty to watch, pure fantasy otherwise. If you're expecting interesting characters or a story that makes sense look elsewhere.

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”)
