Crazy Rich Asians

Based on a best-selling novel of the same title, Crazy Rich Asians is a rather unique romantic-comedy that greatly breaks the stereotypes about Asians with its diverse cast of characters that shows that in times like these, there are films that portray certain races in a rather unique kind of way.

The film stars notable Asian celebrities such as Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan. Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and many others especially a little sneaky appearance by the once-called queen of media Kris Aquino. It's about an Asian-American named Rachel Chu agreed to spending her summer in Singapore with her boyfriend Nicholas Young, only to find out that once stepped out from the plane, her life goes upside down as she might encounter some interesting characters in store for her. How hard can it be?

This film showcases how much Asians have evolved from rags to riches and starting to talk and behave like First World Western people in a middle of a hearty conversation. Although brash and bland in the storytelling department, the vibrant nature of this film and the diverse cast of characters won't go unnoticed as once you watched this film from start to finish, you'll have plenty to reasons to think why Crazy Rich Asians is probably one of the best feel-good movies to watch before summer ends and that is the icing of the ube cake. Sweet.

There are so many reasons why we like watching this film because of the diversity portrayed in this film but there is one very good reason why you should; it's life.

My rating: 4.1 out of 5
