‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is Unapologetically Over-The-Top and Excessive and That’s Exactly How It Should Be (ClickTheCity)

I was coming into Crazy Rich Asians expecting to hate it because I’m a pretension fuck. I love deep and heavy things and everything about what I know/heard of the book was that it was pop and fluff. I love Constance Wu and Michelle Yeah and Gemma Chan and I fell in love with Awkwafina after seeing Ocean’s 8. But the whole premise just made me cringe.

It wasn’t until I was almost halfway through the movie that I decided to take the big stick out of my ass and just accept that it was a comedy and that it was an outrageous, over-the-top comedy and I let it be what it was and I loved it.

Read my review here: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is unapologetically over-the-top and excessive and that’s exactly how it should be (ClickTheCity).


The magnificent Michelle Yeah and Constance Wu and the struggling Henry Golding (his inexperienced showed) in Crazy Rich Asians

It wasn’t a perfect movie. But it wasn’t supposed to be. I wished they expanded Astrid’s story more because it serves as a wonderful contrast to Rachel’s story and because I just love Gemma Chan. I wished that the ending was more of finding the middle ground between the pure Asian culture and the Asian-American culture than it was of the Asian-American perspective winning out but then again it is taking it from that perspective it has to be truthful to its roots as well.

I don’t know. I just loved it. I’m so happy to have seen it and I’m so happy that it’s a huge hit.
