There is nothing crazier than family, especially when it comes to this zany good movie.

In Crazy Rich Asians, Chinese-American Rachel Chu travels to Singapore with her boyfriend, Nick Young, to attend a wedding. Nick’s luxuriously wealthy lifestyle and his close family’s (specifically his mother’s) disapproval of her relationship with Nick, is a lot for Rachel to take in.

The movie features the all-Asian cast of Constance Wu (Rachel Chu), Henry Golding (Nick Young), Michelle Yeoh (Eleanor Young), Gemma Chan (Astrid), Lisa Lu (Nick’s grandmother), and Awkwafina (Goh Peik Lin).

The movie is great fun to see with both friends and family. Not a single scene of this movie is dull. It’s full of heated drama, spicy romance, positive messages, and hilarious jokes.

The most endearing about this rom-com is that main character Rachel Chu does not chase after the boy she loves and puts herself and her well-being first when she has a confrontation with Nick’s mom. She comes to the resolution that she is enough.

It is a learning moment in the movie showing the viewers to love themselves and it’s okay to be in love, but you should always put yourself and your feelings first.

Many critics have showered the film with praise. On Rottentomatoes, the movie has a high rating of 91%. Other notable ratings come from Common Sense Media which gave it a 5/5 and IMDb, which rated the movie 7.5/10. The movie even won the Hollywood Breakthrough Award.

The film is based off of the first novel and The New York Times bestseller of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy by Kevin Kwan. The second and third novels are China Rich Girlfriend and then Rich People Problems.

Though the release date was August 15, the film is still available to see in theaters and now is also available for rent. So if you still have yet to see it, catch it in theaters while it’s still there or purchase it to watch at home with the family.

And if you haven’t already, ask your significant other about their family after the movie. Just to be safe.
