Critic Reviews for Crazy Rich Asians

All Critics (362) | Top Critics (79) | Fresh (328) | Rotten (34)

  • Crazy Rich Asians represents people and places with so little thought that it upholds a painful, brutal hegemony that's painfully apparent to people who live in Southeast Asia, where the film is actually set.

    March 11, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A binge-able series might have been a better way to go, since the script squeezes a sprawling supporting cast into boisterous caricatures and transforms an intricate flow chart of status among Singapore's superrich into a flood of affectations.

    September 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Aside from these important issues of representation and diversity, Crazy Rich Asians marks a welcome return for the funny, giddy, likeable, glamorous Hollywood romcom.

    September 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Somewhere between My Big Fat Greek Wedding and a Jane Austen novel: meticulous and hilariously alert to social structures, family dynamics and money, with a plucky underdog heroine.

    September 15, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Michelle Yeoh takes the acting honours as the heroine's steely prospective mother-in-law.

    September 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Michelle Yoh is terrific not least because... you have [her] character who is very not funny in a way which is kind of impressive in a comedy.

Audience Reviews for Crazy Rich Asians

  • Feb 08, 2021
    Constance Wu is infinitely more engaging and charismatic here than in 'Hustlers' - it doesn't even feel like the same actress. 'Asians' is a lavish, spirited, and just broad enough comedy that embraces how low-key ostracized one can be in adjusting as definitively American to a tightly-networked Singaporean family. I was hanging on every word Michelle Yeoh utters like it's gospel and that scene with Wu on the stairs - yowza. Hearing the term "banana" for the first time when I've had "oreo" thrown my way before in life? I felt that. Though 'Asians' is comfortably structured by genre formula, that is outweighed by how genuinely the central conflicts are addressed (and resolved, mostly), the commitment of the charming ensemble, and the sheer joy of experiencing so many Asian actors in a mainstream film for a dumb ol' American like me. Bring on them sequels!

    Smash hit Crazy Rich Asians relies heavily upon its attractive cast, lavish production, unique setting, laugh-out-loud comedy, and comfortable formula to carry the day. And Ia(TM)m not kidding about formula. You will know immediately that you have seen this movie before. Just not in this outrageous fashion. The plot centers on a young NYU economics professor. Her boyfriend comes from a powerful family in Singapore and they travel home to attend a family wedding. She discovers that most of her significant othera(TM)s relatives are (as the title implies) eccentric and filthy fucking rich. Hijinks ensue. Constance Wu and Henry Golding are a charming and fun couple with intense chemistry. Michelle Yeoh leaves a deep impression on every scene she is in, reflecting both her acting skill and the intimidating effect of her character. The supporting cast is quite amusing, and it should be noted that the last Hollywood production with an all Asian cast was The Joy Luck Club back in 1993. (That film had a decidedly more somber tone. Ita(TM)s worth a look.) Director Jon M. Chu gives this picture the kind of energy and light touch that it needs. Ita(TM)s a damn good choice for rental or streaming. Fun fact. This movie outperformed expectations domestically. It outright bombed in China. Apparently, their audiences tend to prefer over-the-top Hollywood blockbusters. For Americans, Crazy Rich Asians was charming and exotic. For Chinese audiences, it was Tuesday. Food for thought.

    Crazy Rich Asians is not really my type of movie, I don't go in much for romcoms, and I don't think I'm fully on board with some of the messages it's trying to put out there. But I can appreciate that it's very well made, culturally very important, and even kind of endearing.

    Here is a typical rom-com of the 1930s type (you know, the Great Depression, when everybody dreamed that being rich was the answer to life's difficulties, and the movies reflected that) in that a poor ingenue outsider faces considerable obstacles of the familial variety when she dares to aspire to marry the rich favorite son. So overdone, so familiar, as to be of the go-to-sleep-with- the-teevee-still-on variety. But that's merely the opening premise. Beyond is an intricately designed cultural assault, no less, in a cinematic bid for Asian inclusion and equality that implements your familiarity with those motifs to make its point. There's simply too much to list and so I'll only note that the romantic lead attempts a Cary Grant impersonation - shamelessly. Heading this assault is the indomitable Michelle Yeoh (who I love, and so enough about that!) as the hard-nosed matriarch. But, back to the film: pretty good.
