Crazy Rich Asians Is a Pure Hollywood Romantic Comedy in Every Way

The mansion features traditional Hakka and Teochew architecture styles

Constance Wu brings bucketloads of charm, and is the ideal way in for viewers. After some convincing, Rachel accompanies Nick to Singapore for his best friend's wedding which, unbeknownst to her, is basically a Singaporean royal wedding. Young is the princely heir of the family business, which he has temporarily fled but is still expected to soon takeover. Rachel gets the requisite gal-pal sounding board in her nouveau-riche college friend Peik Lin, played by Awkwafina with a flawless sassy spark.

In Kwan's literary trilogy, Crazy Rich Asians is followed by Crazy Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems, so Chu and the cast will definitely have source material to pull from if the film lives up to its expectations at the box office. It won't be long, however, until the story becomes one of how many stars wind up emerging from this film. Even though it may be just that one scene, it was joyous to act with her.

Being in the scene with her was wonderful because she completely understands Eleanor Young. Golding is something of a handsome cipher; he rocks a million-dollar smile, but fully inhabits the tradition of the handsome, near-perfect male lead who's helpfully oblivious to the machinations of the plot. Fresh Off The Boat star Constance Wu stars as Rachel Chu, and all-American NYU professor who finds her world turned upside down when she discovers that her doting boyfriend Nick (Henry Golding) is actually Asia's most eligible bachelor. "Have you ever met a white person?" and "Did you have running water?" During that party, Nick's cousin Astrid (Gemma Chan) locks eyes with a random man. Yeoh is devastating as Nick's judgmental mother. That doesn't mean she has a hard time cutting anyone in her path down without more than a single glance, though. Pierre Png, Fiona Xie, Henry Golding, and Chris Pang are just a few of the names better known for Asian (or Aussie-based) projects who are getting their big shot at seducing the world at large. "I often have conversations with Americans where I ask, 'Oh, have you been to Singapore?" One is the blinged-out, designer-label, crazy-rich opulence often characteristic of rom-coms yet extreme enough here to make even Carrie Bradshaw or Christian Grey blush.

That Midas touch with casting extends to the rest of Crazy Rich Asians' global mélange of actors, who make lasting impressions in parts inevitably abbreviated from the book.

Kroos has now come out and hit back at his former Germany teammate, inisisting there is no racism in the national team and DFB . The type of criticism was certainly not always at a good level - but you have to go through [that] as a player'.

Crazy Rich Asians is ready to share its wealth with moviegoers nationwide, starting today. That is BONKERS, and it makes this film's release noteworthy. So Crazy Rich Asians is kind of a big deal, in the same way it was kind of a big deal for Black Panther to give African-Americans a super-hero who looked like them. "If I didn't get a part, I never thought it was because I was Asian". There's something curiously validating about a Hollywood romantic comedy that pauses for a mouthwatering tour of a Singapore open-air market or a makeover montage set to a Cantonese rendition of Madonna's "Material Girl".

Going on to talk about her experience on working with an all Asian cast on her latest film Crazy Rich Asians, Awkwafina said it "was incredible", noting that the entire cast formed a special familial bond that completely new to her, despite being involved in other films.

Crazy Rich Asians' attention to detail is well, crazy accurate.
