PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
This contemporary romantic comedy, based on a global bestseller, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend's family.
Early in the film, when Rachel is finding an outfit with her mother in which to meet Nick's family; she picks out a blue and white striped dress and her mother tells her blue and white are the colors of mourning. She then gives her a red dress to wear. Later in the film, three main characters end up wearing blue and white: Nick (changing to a blue shirt with a white jacket at the house), Astrid (wearing a blue and white striped shirt) and Rachel (wearing a white top with blue shorts, when she and Astrid were burying the fish). No other cast wore such combination.
Peik Lin Goh:
Good for you. Walking away from Nick and his family's fat-ass property portfolio. You have no one, no net worth, but you have integrity. That's why I respect you.
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.
