CRAZY RICH ASIANS (Movie Review)


Eleanor Young is not a woman to be trifled with. Just ask anyone who's ever mistaken her quiet demeanor for passivity.

Take, say, the manager of a posh London hotel back in 1995, who tried to tell her that the room she'd reserved for her family wasn't available. One phone call later, she owned the place. Suffice it to say that she got the room she'd reserved.

Back in the present, Eleanor's son, Nick, is the apple of her eye. But he's weary of the burden that comes with being the heir apparent to the Young family's sprawling business empire in Singapore. Though Nick's practically treated like a rock star in his home country, he's managed to live a bit more under the radar in New York City for the last several years.

There, he met and fell in love with Rachel Chu, an economics professor at Columbia University and daughter of a hardworking single mom. Somehow, Rachel doesn't know that Nick's practically a crown prince, metaphorically speaking, in his home country. No, to her, Nick's just a polite, attractive, attentive boyfriend.

Just a normal guy. Just like she's a normal girl.

Rachel's thrilled that Nick has invited her to travel with him to Singapore to attend his best friend Colin's wedding, in which Nick will be the best man. After all, whenever Rachel has tried to talk with Nick about his family, he's been pretty quick to change the subject. Now she's finally going to have a chance to meet them.

Rachel's first clue that Nick hasn't quite told her everything about himself comes when they get on the plane … and get a private suite. And champagne. And silk pajamas for the long trip.

Nick tries to explain. "Yes, my family has money," he says modestly. "I've always thought of it as theirs, not mine."

But though Nick's sought to distance himself from his rich relatives, his family has all kinds of plans about his triumphant return to Singapore. Plans that as Rachel soon discovers don't include him spending the rest of his life with a "poor" Chinese-American girlfriend. At least as far as his domineering mother, Eleanor, is concerned, that is.

But slowly, Rachel begins to win over key members of Nick's "crazy rich Asian" family perhaps even beginning to thaw the ice-hard heart of Eleanor Young herself.
