Critics are gushing over “Crazy Rich Asians,” which has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film, which comes to theaters August 15, is funny and romantic all while telling an important story about an Asian American protagonist and her boyfriend’s family in Singapore.
It captures the spirit of the greatest romantic comedies of all time from filmmakers like Nora Ephron, but has its own unique twist. There’s also lots of decadent food, fashion, and real-estate in a way that captures the spirit of Kevin Kwan’s 2013 novel on which the movie is based.
Critics agree that “Crazy Rich Asians” is an excellent movie that is a turning point for the studio romantic comedy.

“The film’s arrival is undeniably momentous. But it’s nearly as vital that Crazy Rich is a romantic comedy — a genre that relies on charisma above all else. The film’s stereotype-busting approach is multifarious.”
Inkoo Kang, Slate
“The entire film heavily leans into its specificity with a zest that’s infectious. ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is here to celebrate in a big way.”
Anne Cohen, Refinery 29
“Seeing this kind of onscreen representation is incredibly satisfying, especially via Kwan’s rich page-turner, loaded with cattiness but also plenty of Asian diversity, from wholesome friends and wise confidantes to jealous mean girls and scheming parents.”
Danny Yu, Time Out
