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.
When Nick and Rachel arrive in Singapore's Changi Airport, they were filmed from the departure hall, which is one level above the arrival hall.
I'm one of the poorer relations. The rainbow sheep of the family. But I make myself useful. Whatever the Youngs want, I procure. Golden koi fish, Huanghuali furniture. A rare Cambodian gong.
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.
In Australia; the film was passed uncut with an M rating for coarse language. The filmmakers then opted to reduce the language in the film in order to obtain a PG classification.
