This contemporary romantic comedy, based on a global bestseller, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend's family.
The film is based on the novel of the same name. The novel is the first part of a trilogy by Kevin Kwan. The second book in the trilogy is "China Rich Girlfriend" and the third is "Rich People Problems."
Is this a church? Or a paddy field?
When Nick is talking to his family about Rachel, he mentions that she teaches millennials. While Nick and Rachel's ages are never explicitly mentioned, we can guess by the 1995 flashback that Nick at least is of the age range generally accepted to be a millennial (early 1980s to mid-1990s). Nick and Rachel seem to be near the same age, making both of them millennials. Unless Rachel is only teaching graduate students, her students would be firmly placed in the Generation Z age range.
