This contemporary romantic comedy, based on a global bestseller, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend's family.
Both Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan have both had roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. Chan played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel (2019) and Yeoh played Aleta Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).
Wye Mun Goh:
Let me get this straight. You both went to the same school. Yet someone came back with a degree that's useful, and the other one came back as Asian Ellen.
When Nick asks Rachel to go to Singapore, he says "Singapore for Spring break". This would place the timing of the film between March and April of the calendar year. However, the Tan Hua (Queen of the Night Flower), which blooms on the second night after they arrive, only blooms between July and October.
There's a mid-credit scene in which Astrid exchanges glances with a man.
For Home Video release in Australia, Crazy Rich Asians (2018) was returned to its Uncut M rating for Course Language.
